THE MINUTES, THE HOURS awarded at the Festival in San Sebastian

Have you ever felt this thrill before entering a cinema? Before entering a land completely new, unknown, uncanny? I loved this feeling, and to this day a film is for me more of an adventure than a commercial product. Those words, expressed by Ania Stadnik- the head of the TWO RIVERSIDES Festival Programming Department, refer to the Independent School and Amateur Short Film Competition of this Festival.

56 short features were qualified for the competition this year, among them Janaína MARQUES RIBEIRO’s THE MINUTES, THE HOURS. The filmmaker accepted our invitation to Kazimierz and was present at the Polish premiere of her film.

The film was awarded the first prize at the 9th International Film Students Meeting organized during the 58th San Sebastian Film Festival. CONGRATULATIONS!
