Międzynarodowy Konkurs Filmowy „Solidarity Shorts”

Napisane przez 
The first “Solidarity Shorts” – International Film Contest has been launched! The contestis addressed to young people from all over the world who find the idea of solidarity close to their hearts. Their task is to shoot a short film which answers the following question: 
“What does the idea of solidarity mean to me today?”
“Solidarity Shorts” is organized by The Lech Walesa Institute in cooperation with the Wajda School Foundation and the Gdynia Film School. The goal of the contest is to encourage young amateur filmmakers from around the world to undertake a sensitive reflection on the relations among people and cultures in today’s world. The contest will allow these filmmakers to demonstrate what the idea of solidarity means to them while also acquaint with the history of Poland’s “Solidarity” (Solidarność) movement. 
 
In order to enter the contest a short film (1-3 minutes long) produced by a young amateur filmmaker (aged 18-30) from any place in the world must be submitted through the official Solidarity 
 
Shorts website (www.solidarityshorts.org). There are no restrictions in terms of the film’s genre or the technology used in the filming process: mobile phones, digital cameras or film cameras can be used.
 
The authors of 11 best films will receive a set of attractive awards: participation in a professional 
 
filmmaker workshop at the Gdynia Film School, a chance to attend the Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates to be held in Warsaw in October 2013 and the opportunity to meet with Lech Wałęsa. 
Air tickets to Poland and back as well as living expenses will be also covered. 
Contest entries are to be submitted by 15 September. Upon submission of the first film a contest film gallery will become available at www.solidarityshorts.org. Ten best films will be selected by the Contest Jury, including outstanding teachers and filmmakers from the Gdynia Film School and the Wajda School Foundation. Additionally, Internet users will have the opportunity to vote for one additional winning film from 16 through 22 September through an online viewer’s choice contest.
 
“Solidarity Shorts” – International Film Contest offers a unique opportunity to promote the concept of global education worldwide. The project is supported by such esteemed Polish institutions as: Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Polish Film Institute and The Adam Mickiewicz Institute. Additionally, the contest will accompany the official agenda of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates.
