15th anniversary of FilmAT Festival

Great anniversary of FilmAT Festival brings reflections. International Jury for the fifteenth time determined the most beautiful films, which in individual categories will be awarded by Tourist statuettes. Films with outstanding educational and scientific values will be, as usual, awarded by Tourist Owl. All our dignified statuettes were designed by well known artist Jacek Podlasiński.

FilmAT Festival since its very beginning is a member of International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals CIFFT, which from 1989 selects the best tourism films of the World. Films partecipating in global ranking are evaluated by jury commissions from different countries and continents. The works nominated and the winner of Grand Prix CIFFT will reign around the World, enchanting international public by this one season, as amazing butterflies, which live short but leave their beauty in the memory of the whole World for a long time…

CIFFT, as well as our Festival are endorsed by such international institutions as:   World Tourism Organization UNWTO, European Travel Commission, Caribbean Tourism Organization and Centro America.

Tourist Owl of 15th FilmAT Festival

FilmAT Festival was born in royal town of Płock and from the beginnng (with a year gap for Lublin edition) continues activity in Mazovia – in the heart of Poland and in Warsaw – same centre of Europe. From the beginning our partner is Polish Tourism Organization, an active participant primarily of the national competition, which determine the best film from all Poland, also from the smallest towns and villages.

Office of the Marshal of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship is another institution which supports us from many years giving its patronage and as a partner of several international conferences. We are proud, that in this jubilee edition Museum of Sports and Tourism, institution of Mazovian Voivodeship is a partner of FilmAT Festival. We are very pleased that the people managing the Museum are specialists in the field of film, so they could share their substantive knowledge during the sessions of both jury committees.

By the occasion of the great jubilee, I would like to emphasize that thanks to several years of fruitful cooperation with the General Inspectorate of Road Transport (which for a year, until July this year, was the presidency of the Euro Contrôle Route), we were able to promote films of high educational value in the field of travel safety, and especially road safety.

We are proud that from many years the jury, which consists of increasingly younger and talented jurors, is chaired by Zbigniew Żmudzki, an educated and experienced artist-filmmaker, producer of Oscar-winner animaion “Peter and the Wolf”. In the works of international jury takes part Alexander V. Kammel – the top specialist in tourism promotion and corporate film, creator and director of CIFFT.

How does Zbigniew Żmudzki, the president of the jury, evaluate these victories and this year’s edition?

I am glad that despite the pandemic, the 15th anniversary FilmAT Festival took place. The restrictions related to the epidemic made it necessary to act online, often without traditional meetings. Nevertheless, it turned out that the level of the festival did not drop at all. The submitted films were characterized by originality and high quality. artistic and technical quality. I am also happy that there are better and better Polish films at the festival. I am pleased with the award of the Tourist Owl statuette for professor Maria Pomianowska – world-famous ethnic musician.

It should also be noted that FilmAT had excellent partners this year – the Sports and Tourism Museum and, like every year, the Polish Tourism Organization. I would also like to thank the director of the festival, Ewa Kotus, and her team for the enormous amount of work in such unusual conditions in which we had to work … „

Congratulations for all winners!
