15th One Minute Film Festival

One minute. Sixty seconds. What can a film maker show in such time? You will find out in the Baltic Sea Cultural Centre's social media channels this Wednesday and Thursday.

Puttning a complete artistic message in only sixty seconds is a challenge. A challenge that has been taken both by experienced film makers and debutants. It was not the experience, but how the authors faced such short form that mattered to our Jury. The effects of their deliberations will be known this week!

Due to the pandemic, the 15th One Minute Film Festival has been wholly moved online. But that doesn't mean the Festival will lack some of its attractions. Like each year, we invited film makers to send us a one minute film. The Jury chose 39 works out of 92. 

The Festival will have two parts - the films, which will be presented on the Baltic Sea Cultural Centre's YouTube channel, and special webinars from our guests - members of the Jury.


This year's Jury are:

Jagoda Szelc – film director and scriptwriter. A graduate of Academy of the Fine Arts in Wrocław and the Polish Film School in Łódź. For her debut feature film, "Tower. A Bright Day" (2017), she was awarded the Best Debut at Gdynia Film Festival. Her second film, "Monument" (2018), brought her a Special Jury's Prize in Gdynia. She is currently working on her third film, "Delicate Balance of Terror".

Diana Dąbrowska – film critic, culture animator and teacher at Italian Studies at the University of Łódź. She published in Filmweb, Kultura Liberalna, Kino, Ekrany and in anthologies. Co-editor of "Kino włoskie po 1980 roku" (2018). Grand Prix laureate of "Krytyk mówi" contest. Nominated for the Polish Film Institute Award in Film Critics category (2019). 2nd place winner in "Konkurs o nagrodę im. Krzysztofa Mętraka", a contest for young film critics (2020). Artistic Director of Hommage a Kieślowski festival.

Radosław Pisula – author of a popcultural fanpage Full Frontal Pisula, co-founder of Napisy Końcowe, vlogger and podcast maker. Journalist, translator, space warrior. He researched filmographies of John Woo, JOhn Carpenter and Walter Hill. A total film eater. His favourites include horrors, action films and Hollywood Golden Era films. He values sequels that no-one waits for (especially the next "Scorpion King"), loves Grace Kelly, Howard the Duck and Godzilla – ideally in one film.
