The jury

Catalin Olaru (Romania), Evrim Kaya (Turkey), Andrzej Fogler (Poland)

Our jury sees first films from Eastern Europe.

We offered a workshop for young colleagues, the “FIPRESCI Warsaw Critics’ Project”. The participants presented the “Young Critics’ Prize” to Ghosts (Turkey, France, Quatar, 2020, 90 min), directed by Azra Deniz Okyay, “for bravely portraying the role of potentially combustible topics such as freedom of speech and self-expression, misogynism, and lack of hope for a better tomorrow in contemporary Turkey”.
