During this year’s Closing Ceremony, the award for artistic insolence is going to be given to Martyna Wojciechowska: a journalist, traveller, social activist, author of documentary films and numerous books. She is the founder of the UNAWEZA Foundation and the initiator of the ‘Młode Głowy. Otwarcie o zdrowiu psychicznym' (‘Young Heads. About mental health without any barriers’) Initiative.

To me, Martyna Wojciechowska is a remarkable and multi-dimensional person, who creates a space for dialogue no only on the big screen, but also through her social activities. To us - women, she will offer wings of courage, and always show consistence and determination when pursuing her goals. She is a truly rebellious woman, comments Kafka Jaworska. For me, it is a great honour that this extraordinary woman will be our guest, who will come not only as a filmmaker, but also the initiator of the ‘Młode Głowy. Otwarcie o zdrowiu psychicznym’ Initiative, and the president of the UNAWEZA Foundation which mission is to provide aid to people in Poland and in the farthest corners of the world.

For 10 years, Martyna Wojciechowska was the chief editor of the Polish editions of the ‘National Geographic’ and ‘NG Traveler’ magazines. She continues to travel around the world with her original traveller show ‘Kobieta na krańcu świata’ (‘Woman at the End of the World’), in which she brings us closer to many inspiring women, but also tackles socially significant issues related to human rights. To this day, she has made nearly 130 episodes of the show.

She also makes documentary films, which are applauded all around the world. Her documentary film ‘Ludzie duchy / The Ghost People’ was awarded the Golden Nymph Award at the Monte Carlo Film Festival, while the documentary ‘A jeśli jutro wojna się skończy / What If The War Ends Tomorrow’ received an award at the Deauville Green Awards International Festival for Responsible Film.

This year, the programme of the festival includes the documentary film ‘Hope’, which was awarded at the World Media Film Festival in Hamburg. The international premiere of the film took place at the beginning of June via Max streaming service. You are very welcome to attend a meeting with our award winner, which takes place on Saturday, 29th June, at 4.40 p.m., in the Chamber Hall of the Cultural and Congress Centre Jordanki in Toruń, after the screening of the film.

A day before, on Friday, 28th June, Martyna Wojciechowska will participate in a meeting following the screening of the film ‘Nic nie czuję’ in which the ‘Młode głowy. Otwarcie o zdrowiu psychicznym' (‘Young Heads. About mental health without any barriers’) project was actively involved. The authors and people shown in the film, namely Anita Bugajska, Janusz Schwertner, Jerzy Zawadzki, Rafał Szymański, Oliwia Stępień-Tomaszek, and Magdalena Tomaszek, respectively, are also going to be present at the meeting. The film starts at 7.50 p.m. in Cinema City.
