The slogan of this year’s festival, “Rethink Everything”, is taken from the film directed by Richard Dale, Nigel Walk. It is an invitation to rethink our view of the world in the face of the pandemic and Russian aggression in Ukraine. The 19th Millennium Docs Against Gravity will present five films about Ukraine and organise a special screening of “Mariupol” film.

Out of more than 70 films included in the festival programme, an exceptional twelve have been selected to compete for the Lower Silesia Grand Prix award. The jury, composed of Magda Pasierska, Martyna Majewska, Jan Pelczar and Jarosław Perduta, will select the film which will receive the award of 3000 euros. The awarding of the statuette will be accompanied by a screening of the film “Navalny” (dir. Daniel Roher). The opening of the festival will be equally grand, with the premiere of the film “Lombard” (dir. Łukasz Kowalski).
