Polish edition of My Street Films
My Street Films, which first took place in London and Prague, has also successfully been launched in
Poland. The main task for contestants was to create short documentary films about specific places
around them, and add their works to a new film map of Poland. The awarded films were screened
during the 55th Krakow Film Festival in June where their authors had the opportunity to join
professional filmmaking workshops.
Polish film enthusiasts enjoyed their high My Street Film season in spring. The final deadline
was set for April 27, 2015 and more than 30 films were added to the online film map of Poland.
Selected filmmakers were then given a helping hand by three tutors: Piotr Lenar, Błażej Wolny and
Marek Klimaszewski. They shared their skills and ideas during a workshop on film directing and
editing, organized by Akademia Multi Art in Krakow.
The first edition of My Street Films in Poland already knows its winners. If you missed the
screenings at the Krakow Film Festival, you can watch the awarded films online:
