About The Festival

The International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography EnergaCAMERIMAGE is the greatest and most recognized festival dedicated to the art of cinematography and its creators – cinematographers. EnergaCAMERIMAGE contributes to the growth of cinematographers’ prestige. The unconventional format of the Festival, which awards films and music videos according to their visual, aesthetic and technical values, has turned out to be an alternative for traditional film festivals. As all our guests emphasize - EnergaCAMERIMAGE is unique. The Festival proves to be a great forum not only for presentation but also for further development of international moviemaking. EnergaCAMERIMAGE helps young filmmakers and integrates the community of those already recognized, allowing them to explore new artistic areas.

Apart from the Main Competition, the Festival also contains other events such as Student Etudes Competition, Documentary Films Competition, Music Videos Competition, Polish Films Competition, CAMERIMAGE Market, CAMERIMAGE Forum, special screenings and premieres, various reviews, retrospectives, meetings, panels and also accompanying events such as art exhibitions and music performances.
