The Festival organizers’ idea was to create an opportunity for young, independent artists to present their films to a festival audience and to the media, as well as to make contacts in the industry.
Zoom Competition is addressed to Wrocław's film community and visual artists. It is open to both shorts and feature length films in all genres, as well as video experiments and video clips. The jury will award prizes for Best Film (10,000 PLN) and Best Video Clip (5,000 PLN), as well as a scholarship granted to an author under 40 who lives or studies in Lower Silesia region. All awards are sponsored by the European Capital of Culture Wrocław 2016.
