Likvid's video Flush it Out made by Marian Vredik and Jana Hirnerova was qualified to the final of POP SEFF competition - organised as part of June edition of Szczecin European Film Festival'18, which will take place on June 13-17 2018, in Szczecin / Poland
The Szczecin European Film Festival. The festival's organisational form is international – the event is headed by two directors (one from Poland and one from Germany), a Polish-German committee is responsible for selecting the competition films, and the organisers are Poland's OFFicyna, as well as a network of Polish and German partners. Every autumn, the festival takes place in Poland and in chosen locations in Germany. The festival's core is the European documentary film competition, which features films produced no later than the year previous to the current edition. This way, the viewers are presented with a cross-section of modern European documentary art. The Program Committee seeks out, first and foremost, productions that aim to explore the formal and/or thematic borders of film. Productions that represent the traditional art of the documentary are also relevant. The creative tension between the traditional and the avant-garde is an important element of the competition. Szczecin European Film Festival is the annual one-week movie celebration: a European documentary competition and several dozen other festival events, such as retrospectives, film premieres, meetings with the filmmakers, trans-border discussions, and the meeting of Eastern and Western cultures. The festival has been visited by many guests, including the filmmakers Maciej Drygas, Jacek Bławut, Paweł Łoziński, Volker Koepp, Rainer Komers, Jolanta Dylewska, Anna Ferens, Michał Dawidowicz, Jacek Bromski, Birgit Acar, Cecilia Lidin, Kamil Kuskowski, Marcin Koszałka, Dorota Roszkowska, Przemysław Lewandowski, Róża Romaniec, Adam Ustynowicz; as well as journalists: Adam Krzemiński, Sławomir Sierakowski, Piotr Semka, Jakub Socha, Tomasz Raczek, Bartosz Żurawiecki. The project is co-financed by the City of Szczecin, the Minister of Culture and National Heritage, Polish - German Foundation for Co - operation, the Marshal's Office of the West Pomerania Voivodeship, the Polish Film Institute (PISF).
