POLIN Museum Film Call

There are over 9 million descendants of Polish Jews in the world. What is their connection to the land of their forefathers? The POLIN Museum is calling for proposals for short films that explore this question in creative ways.

The fourteen short films completed on the basis of these proposals will be featured in the epilogue to POLIN Museum’s multimedia narrative exhibition, which is dedicated to the thousand-year history of Polish Jews.

Each of the fourteen finalists will receive up to 56,000 PLN (about 15,000 USD) to produce one short film based on their winning proposal. The value of each prize will depend on the proposal and its preliminary budget.   

The winning shorts will be the basis for an epilogue to POLIN Museum’s multimedia core exhibition, which is dedicated to the thousand-year history of Polish Jews. Since POLIN Museum opened in 2013, more than 3 million visitors from across the globe have passed through its doors. In 2016, POLIN Museum won the European Museum of the Year Award and the European Museum Academy Prize. POLIN Museum is dedicated to transmitting the legacy of Polish Jews and fostering dialogue in the spirit of mutual understanding and respect.

Deadline: 31 August 2019
