This is how we open the curatorial text of the 15th edition of Short Waves Festival! It was prepared for you by Aleksandra Skowronska, who holds a key curatorial position in the new structure of the festival. Her experience and knowledge of the international audiovisual arts landscape have a great value for the whole structure of this year’s SWF! We are delighted that it is Ola who will be in the center of our activities implementing the ideas under the motto Rethink/Rebuild. She will build new foundations, modifying patterns and incorporating new ideas.
