Curatorial text of 15th Short Waves Festival

,,We are subconsciously sensing that a breakthrough is imminent. Our gut is telling us – we’re at a turning point. This feeling cannot be verbalized – it’s still fresh, eluding definitions, and has not been given a specific direction. Change slowly emerges on the horizon and intensifies inconspicuously. It is also fluid – its shape is entirely up to us.”

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.
