CONNECTED / Aleksandra Maciejczyk / 2018 / 19'

Chris, who is blind and his wife and guide, Viola are getting ready to go skiing. In the mountains they communicate by Bluetooth. The higher they get, the more we learn about their lives. At some point, the weather changes. When Viola and Chris finally reach the top, they have to find each other in the fog. A short film about love and passion.

Artistic supervision: Jacek Bławut, Andrzej Sapija

STRAWBERRY BOYS / Michał Toczek / 2018 / 21'

Nineteen-year-old Hubert helps his parents on a farm on a daily basis. However, he dreams of becoming a disco-polo music star. A bitter-sweet tale of love, coming of age and an attempt to make dreams come true.

Artistic supervision: Mirosław Dembiński, Maciej Drygas

THEIR VOICES / Eri Mizutani / 2017 / 26'

Boarding school pupils create a childlike magical world to which we do not have access. In silence, through subtly conducted observation, we have the opportunity to look at their facial expressions, understand their emotions, and finally - to hear their voices, inaudible to us at the beginning of the film.

Artistic supervision: Jacek Bławut, Andrzej Sapija

SISTERS / Michał Hytroś / 2017 / 20'

Behind a mighty 800-year-old wall, in the oldest female cloister monastery in Poland - the Benedictine monastery in Staniątki near Krakow, the life of 12 sisters is going on – 70 being the average age of the sisters. Despite their advanced years and the world changing at a frantic pace behind the wall, every day, they try to subordinate their lives to the rule "ORA et LABORA" invented more than 10 centuries ago. Our heroines - the sisters Anunciata and Benedicta (in the monastery for 40 years), introduce us with their own charm into the world behind the wall, talk about their lives and decisions made. They show us the monastic world in all its shades, completely stripped of stereotypical images; often touching and funny at the same time. This is a film about silence told extremely loudly.

Artistic supervision: Grażyna Kędzielawska, Dorota Wardęszkiewicz, Jacek Bławut

EDUCATION / Emi Buchwald / 2016 / 20'

The film shows the paradoxes of school teaching. Pupils of the fourth grade of primary school try to understand and interpret Julian Tuwim's poem "Education" with the help of their parents.
