Nespresso Talents is a film competition in which everyone can participate – both students of film schools, as well as amateurs who are close to film art.
The theme of this year’s edition is: Virtuous Circles, interpreted as Life is a circle in which good breeds good. Change for the better begins in the minds of people, from dreams of a better world and often has the dimension of a small inconspicuous step. There are many people in the world who are involved in important social issues to solve important problems and thus increase the chances of the world becoming a more friendly place to live. It is these stories – authentic (taken from life) or fictitious (being the product of the artist’s imagination) – trying to capture the process of change for the better, the source of which may lie in an inconspicuous gesture, movement, event, are to tell this year’s films. Cinema inspires by showing a fragment of reality, but also the imagination of the creators can infect to positive action. It is important to think broadly, carefully watch the world, reach for your dreams of a better tomorrow, think about what is important.
This year’s edition of Nespresso Talents also has the Polish edition for the first time. Thus, the submitted film will take part in both international selection and will be evaluated by the international Jury, as well as evaluated by the Polish Jury. In mid-April, the jury consisting of: Małgorzata Kożuchowska (actress), Kinga Dębska (director), Anna Zoll (winner of the third edition of Nespresso Talents) and Łukasz Maciejewski (film critic) will choose the shortlist, i.e. 10 films from which 3 winning films will be selected. The final of the Polish edition of Nespresso Talents will take place during the Polish Feature Film Festival in Gdynia, where the award ceremony will take place.
By working with young filmmakers, Nespresso continues its commitment to tackle socially important topics and make changes for the better. It is also worth adding that this year every film sent to the competition will lead to the planting of ten trees by Nespresso in partnership with PUR Projet.
