Capturing Freedom 2019: And The Winners Are...!
The Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Transatlantyk Festival have announced the winners of this year’s edition of the Capturing Freedom Short Film Contest. Both the jury and internet users have made their decisions: out of over 300 film sent from around the globe, four finalists were chosen!
This year’s Capturing Freedom Short Film Contest theme was “Common Values”. The Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Transatlantyk Festival invited young filmmakers to reflect on the meaning of individual and collective freedom.
The contest was open to film school students of graduates, up to the age of 35. Submitted were to be no longer than 10 minutes long.
The jury decided to give out four awards – action cameras and invitations to participate in the Transatlantyk Festival in Łódź, where the winning films will be screened. The award ceremony will take place in July during the festival.
The winning films:
What Else Needs to Happen?
The Jury’s decision: for simple, metaphoric yet disturbingly suggestive form that invites both reflection and attention to the poignant subject matter of the film.
The Jury’s decision: for the efficient use of film fiction to draw attention to more and more bold approach of technology to the limits of what is human and emotional and the consequences that flows it.
The Jury’s decision: for creating a mechanical, soulless and disturbing world and critical thinking about its inhumane values.
