During the workshops, we will develop a scenario basing on the participants’ memories, especially those related to the city and its places of interest. We will bring your archival photographs to life and we will tell the story, inspired by the memory of what was in the past.

workshops for ŻUBROFFKA’s Young Jury only

Films can be watched, you can talk about them, you can write about them… But you can do it all together and make a video-review. For that we need our own opinions, creativity and smartphones. By the way, let’s answer such questions as: how to prepare? what to remember? what to forget?, what is really important, and what – on the contrary – completely redundant? As for the festival of short films, the workshops will be short, content and on point!

Kaja Klimek, pop culture journalist. A graduate of journalism and cultural studies at the Jagiellonian University, and a post-graduate student at the Jagiellonian University. She loves movies, sometimes writes them (once for Film, Dwutygodnik, Filmweb, HIRO, and others) and constantly discusses them – also with the children involved in the NHEF’s, the Polish Film Institute’s and the School Viedolibrary’s film education programs. She co-hosts Weekendowy Magazyn Filmowy in TVP,awarded by the Polish Film Institute as the best tv show about film. Film and book translator. She has recently launched Hashtag Workshop YouTube channel- a vlog dedicated to pop culture and movies. She likes comics, plastic jewelry, and… Nicolas Cage.

Additionally, workshop participants will be able to observe the work of journalists during the planned visits to Program 3 of the Polish Radio in Warsaw and the Polish Radio Białystok. Thanks to the fact that the festival will be attended by more than 100 guests from all over the world, the workshops will also be an opportunity to learn how the film market operates in Poland and in the world, as well as the opportunity to get to know some extraordinary people. The workshops are aimed at people with curiosity about the world, with heads full of ideas, who like to talk with people and feel free during public presentations.

Ryszard Jaźwiński spends most of his life in cinemas.Journalist, film observer, frequent jury member at various festivals, moderator of the meetings with filmmakers, and co-creator of the Trójka Talent Competition. He has been working for the Program III of the Polish Radio since the beginning of his professional career. His beloved place, just after Warsaw, once was Madrid, now – Barcelona, hence his nickname Rico, because he loves everything that is Spanish! The author of innumerable interviews with film stars, he befriended many of them. For over 20 years he has been hosting his own show “Trójkowo, filmowo”, awarded in 2010 with the award of the Polish Film Institute and several times nominated for this award; as well as a daily series of short meetings with filmmakers – “Fajny film …”.
