Ladies and Gentlemen,

    The decision of the Polish government to limit cultural activities due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in the country is not only justified, but even necessary. Events where a larger number of viewers meet may become the cause of the dynamic spread of the virus. The decision has filled us with pain, but also understanding. At the same time, we appeal to all creators of culture to find strength and survive the necessary restrictions. Only in this way can we prevent the suffering and death of many people.

    We hoped and prepared everything necessary for the EnergaCAMERIMAGE Festival to be held stationary. Despite the pandemic, many outstanding artists confirmed their readiness to come to Toruń for EnergaCAMERIMAGE already last month. We expected Philippe Rousselot, Viggo Mortensen, Johnny Depp, Julian Sands, and Vittorio Storaro. We also invited Ridley Scott, David Lynch, Volker Schlöndorff, Roman Polański, Jerzy Skolimowski, Carlos Saura, Tom Cruise, Kate Winslet, Keanu Reeves, Woody Allen, Agnieszka Holland, Małgorzata Szumowska, Lech Majewski, RZA and many, many others. We expected the arrival of about a thousand cinematographers and film school students from around the world, many representatives of companies producing film equipment and technologies, and fans of the 10th Muse.

    However, the fight for human dignity, for the right not to submit to the conditions imposed by pandemics, must be rational and safe. Therefore, taking into account the current situation from the very beginning, we invite you to a film journey through the ONLINE.CAMERIMAGE.PL environment created by us especially for this edition of the festival. There you will be able to watch feature films, documentaries, student films, TV series pilots and music videos, actively participate in technology seminars, and talk with our guests as a part of Q&A meetings previously announced on our website as available for VIRTUAL ACCREDITATION. We will still meet in the interior of our Festival Center generated in 3D technology, we will visit a virtual market, where our industry partners will present the latest equipment solutions for the film industry. The most modern video communication modules will allow us to talk to tech developers, traders or users. Let's experience the atmosphere of EnergaCAMERIMAGE 2020 in a pandemic-safe ONLINE environment and enjoy film screenings and meetings with the greatest filmmakers in the world together.

    We kindly ask you for more patience. The current restrictions eliminating stationary shows requires an adjustment of the online program of the festival. We are constantly working to present to you the new schedule and a detailed description of the online screenings. We will provide you with more information very soon.

    I cordially invite you,

    Marek Żydowicz
    Director of EnergaCAMERIMAGE Festival
