The Warsaw Critics Project 2020

The FIPRESCI Warsaw Critics Project has returned to the 36th Warsaw International Film Festival, which runs from October 9 to 18, 2020.  The training programme for young critics and film journalists from Central and Eastern Europe is co-ordinated by the Warsaw Film Foundation and FIPRESCI, the International Federation of Film Critics. This year’s course was run by British critic Amber Wilkinson and Italian critic Tommaso Tocci. 

Over the course of the programme, the participants contributed to the FIPRESCI website and awarded the “Young Critics’ Prize” to Ghosts (Turkey, France, Quatar, 2020, 90 min).
