Bearing in mind Bydgoszcz local film circle’s traditions (Kazimierz Karabasz, Mirosław Dembiński, Maciej Cuske, Marcin Sauter or the Bydgoszcz Newsreel which has been functioning for over a decade) we have decided to establish a local award for the best documentary productions which participate in the Millennium Docs Against Gravity Festival’s competition – the BYDGOSZCZ ART.DOC AWARD.This year’s edition’s award will amount to Euro 2500. The winner will be selected by a jury composed of:
Ewa Czerska - defense attorney actively involved in self-government activities since 2003. She currently serves as the vice-dean of the District Bar Council in Bydgoszcz and as a member of the Commission for External Image and Legal Protection of the Supreme Bar Council. A former member of the Commission for Human Rights of the Supreme Bar Council. Professionally, she focuses on cooperation with cultural institutions and educational activities at an art school. She actively supports and participates in civic initiatives related to young people's legal education.
Elżbieta Jabłońska - visual artist whose work offers an amiably ironic commentary on the social roles assigned to the individual and the functioning mechanisms of art institutions, reflecting on social involvement in the field of art. Her works include long-term activities based on cooperation with cultural institutions and the public, initiatives engaging various communities and curatorial projects. Elżbieta Jabłońska’s art is often described as feminist or post-feminist. She creates mainly installations, photographs, performances and space-time activities. She treats the work of art as a relational object whose sense and meaning may be subject to change and negotiation. Currently, she focuses on artistic gestures that encourage action, building a momentary community, creating a field of mutual communication and understanding, thus eschewing the creation of the material and sometimes her authorship. President of the W788 Foundation, lecturer at the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Mikołaj Kopernik University in Toruń.
Krzysztof Nowicki - documentary filmmaker, the director of the Przeźrocza Film Festival in Bydgoszcz, and the founder of the film groups KolorOFFon and Stealtheapple.
