On May 19, at the Theater Studio in Warsaw, the 19th Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival awards ceremony took place.
Millennium Docs Against Gravity Festival viewers in Warsaw, Wrocław, Gdynia and Poznań will once again have a chance to vote for the best film in the Wyborcza.pl Big Screen Doc Award Competition. 12 captivating and well-crafted films, made to be watched on the big screen, will familiarise the audience with different pop culture phenomena, as well as more serious topics.
The climate crisis is also a humanitarian crisis. Every year, millions of people are forced to flee their homes due to increasingly frequent disasters, such as floods, cyclones, droughts and forest fires. In 2020 alone, 30,7 million people were internally displaced because of disasters – accounting for over 75% of the people estimated to have been internally displaced that year. By 2050, the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance every year could rise to over 200 million.
This was the second time that Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival assumed a hybrid form: after the cinema section, which had taken place in seven Polish cities (Warsaw, Wrocław, Gdynia, Poznań, Katowice, Lublin, and Bydgoszcz) on September 3-12, the online section went live on mdag.pl from September 16 to October 3. The two sections attracted an impressive total of 134 006 attendees.
This is the last step before the launch of the 18th Millennium Docs Against Gravity on September 3! Starting on August 19, you can purchase single-screening tickets on mdag.pl and in the ticket offices of festival cinemas (during opening hours). The festival portal now offers a program grid featuring both film screenings and additional events of this year’s festival.
Agnieszka Holland, Christian Frei, Zuza Krajewska, Bartek Chaciński – these are just some of the prominent figures of film and culture who will award prizes in all the competitions during the 18th Millennium Docs Against Gravity. Below we would like to present the complete juries of the Warsaw edition of the festival!
All the festival fans have been waiting for this moment! The full programme of this year’s Millennium Docs Against Gravity Festival appeared on the mdag.pl website today. It involves nearly 150 documentary films which represent a great diversity when it comes to the places where they were made as well as forms - among them, there are feature length ones, short film, animations and documentary series. The festival will take place from 3rd to 12th September in seven cities (Warsaw, Wrocław, Gdynia, Poznań, Katowice, Lublin and Bydgoszcz) and then from 16th September do 3rd October online at mdag.pl.
The Millennium Docs Against Gravity festival has come of age – it celebrates its 18th edition! Once again viewers will be able to watch the best documentary cinema from all around the world. As it already became our tradition, the program includes new thematic sections, connected to subjects that were of particular importance to filmmakers throughout the last year. Below we are introducing selected films from the new sections, two per each.
We had to make the difficult decision to reschedule the festival to September. The 18th—now grown-up—edition of Millennium Docs Against Gravity will take place in September 3-12 in cinemas in Warsaw, Wrocław, Gdynia, Poznań, Katowice, Lublin, and Bydgoszcz, with the online edition taking place between September 16 and October 3.
The call for submissions to the 18th Millennium Docs Against Gravity Film Festival is now open.
