“I just realised that we had a red zone for dozens of years, between 1944 and 1989, and somehow we made it through,” said Stefan Laudyn, director of the Warsaw Film Festival, in a pre-awards video broadcast on Facebook. Laudyn was alluding to both the communist regime that held Poland in its grip and the current COVID-19 restrictions. The so-called red zone was introduced in Warsaw on the day the festival commenced, meaning that only 25% of the seats could be occupied. The gathering had chosen to hold a physical edition this year, with a rich programme and a limited number of foreign guests.

The event welcomed nine international juries (including a Young FIPRESCI jury, comprising participants in the FIPRESCI Warsaw Critics Project) and organised five competitive sections. The winner of the International Competition was Farkhat Sharipov’s 18 Kilohertz (Kazakhstan), a film set in 1990s Almaty (Kazakhstan’s capital city) and revolving around a group of teenagers who are trying to find their place in the world, while being tempted by the heroin that is flooding the streets of their hometown.
