Opolskie Lamy Film Festival, the most prominent film event in Opole voivodeship and one of the well-known independent film festivals in Poland, is a celebration of moving pictures: more than a hundred film screenings and accompanying cultural events fill several cultural institutions of the city. Hence, it was an honor that the short film etudes, produced by participants of the Spotlight Summer School in 2022 in Opole and 2023 in Józsefváros, Budapest, were included in the festival program.
On 8th October, a sunny Sunday, two films from Opole and four from Józsefváros were screened in the Contemporary Art Gallery in Opole. Three Spotlight participants, Emre Can Alptekin, Marta Dubiel, and Erik Kadar, were present at the screening thus the audience could ask about their experiences, intentions, and impressions. We are grateful to the organizers of Opolskie Lamy Film Festival, in particular, Rafał Mościcki and Patryk Kolwicz for making this screening possible. Special thanks to the audience, who dedicated their time to this event and actively participated in the follow-up Q&A.
The short films from Opole are already available on Spotlight Summer School’s website, and the films from Budapest will soon be uploaded: https://2022spotlight.wixsite.com/spot-light/post/spotlight-on-opole-a-portrait-of-the-city-through-the-cinema-lens
Spotlight Summer School is co-organized by Ágnes Erőss, research fellow at the HUN-REN Geographical Institute CSFK.
We are planning further screening events, stay tuned!
