Save the Date!
The buttons next to each festival event help users access its live stream, sign up for a mentoring session or a workshop.
The most important of these is SAVE THE DATE button which will send an e-mail reminder an hour prior to the event’s starting time.
Select your time zone!
As the festival brings together participants from around the world, we have added the time zone selection feature that will be available in the left part of the Programme tab, right under the event categories listing.
Please remember to set your time zone so that you see the events’ times correctly displayed on the website!
How can I access a talk after it streamed?
As in previous years, all lectures, discussions and presentations in Best of Poland category will be recorded and uploaded to WATCH AGAIN subpage. After the festival ends, they will be also shared on Adam Mickiewicz Institute’s YouTube channel.
The Audio Programme episodes will be released in instalments and will be available with no time limits.
Festival participants will be able to attend remote workshop sessions organised by artists and curators.
Participation is free of charge, but filling in the application and being accepted as a participant is required. Individual application forms are available in Programme.
We’re waiting for your forms until October 2nd. After our curators review all the applications, we’ll invite the participants via email on October 6th, 2020.
Due to high interest we cannot guarantee a workshop spot to everyone. The organisers will determine who participates in the workshops on the basis of information included in the registration forms.
Registration for the workshops is mandatory. The workshops are free of charge.
Meet the experts – one-on-one mentoring session
Mentoring sessions offer an opportunity to meet international digital culture experts from leading international organisations. Sessions last 20 minutes and allow you to discuss your ideas for interactive projects or games, learn how to submit your work to an international festival or forge a relationship with an institution.
Given the open character of these sessions, we ask participants to:
1) prepare in advance what they wish to communicate and ask about so that they make the most of the allotted time;
2) (for authors) prepare information about the projects they will be presenting in English;
3) be mindful of the 20-minute time slots and the fact there are other participants interested in attending the sessions.
The sessions will be held in English (in case of experts from abroad) and Polish.
Registration to join an expert’s table will be conducted through Doodle. Follow the Festival’s website and event page on Facebook to learn when registration opens.
Registration for the sessions is mandatory. The sessions are free of charge.
