Dears ATTENTION all friends, filmmaking and festival community!!! WE NEED FILMS FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIES ASAP. Weronika Jurkiewicz and Bianca Lucas are starting the BORDER CROSSING CHILDREN’S FILM FESTIVAL in POLAND. Many mothers/ families are currently waiting in line at the border with their children for 12 hrs at a time in the cold. Once they cross, they have to wait further for transport. Exhausted, having to keep it together for their kids. Everything is progressing dramatically and we are trying to move fast. We are scrambling to set up a points in Przemyśl, Medyka, and literally along the crossing where mothers wait either to cross or for transport with their children. Holding screenings and distractions for children is crucial in giving the little ones a moment of light through the trauma, and the mothers a moment to breathe. And hopefully see a smile on some of the children’s faces. We are currently trying to organize venues, projectors, screens and seats. Anyone who can help us with that and logistics in Poland, please let us know. But in the meantime WE NEED FILMS FOR CHILDREN ASAP. The wifi is cutting out at the border, we need files and downloadable links. NO DIALOGUE, SHORT OR LONG, RIGHTS AND FEES WAIVED for the purpose of this event. I’m calling on all fellow FESTIVALS, PROGRAMMERS, FILMMAKERS AND DISTRIBUTORS. Weronika is already there.
Please think of the most suitable films for the families in need right now. UPDATE: you can now send downloadable films to:
