The EnergaCamerimage film festival in Poland will be held this week against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine. The host city is Torun, about 19 miles from the Polish village of Przewodów, near the Ukrainian border, where the missiles landed on Tuesday, although the incident did not disrupt festival plans.
“We closely follow all news related to yesterday’s incident on the Polish-Ukrainian border,” event organizers said in a statement provided to The Hollywood Reporter said in . “The film festival will not remain indifferent to what is happening in Ukraine, and you can see that in this year’s EnergaCAMERIMAGE program. Based on what we know about the event so far, we have no reason to think that it will endanger us in any way And that is the most important thing for us.”
This week, Cameraimage will support two Ukrainian film festivals displaced by war: The OKO International Ethnographic Film Festival and KINOKO Film Festival.
In addition, a short film was screened during Saturday’s opening ceremony and during the festival, telling the stories of filmmakers who joined the Ukrainian army.
EnergaCamerimage runs through November 19.
