Centre for Contemporary Art Łaźnia organizes the Festival IN OUT for the 8th time. The project evolves every year searching for new suggestions and solutions. The 7th edition of the festival was enriched with presentations that attempted to combine works of artists with different attitude towards film media and education. With the 8th edition we would like to continue this process in order to create permanent platform of communication between the artist who graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and those who studied at Film Schools. The contest, Festival and exhibition are to trigger the dialogue among the artists as well as between schools and academies.
  This year we invite artists to take part in the contest for the best:
Animations/Documentaries/Short films/ Experiments/Short video forms with the theme named BIO_GRAPHI(C/E)S
We are interested not only in the biographies or parallel biographies of well-known people, but also in the stories of people important of a particular artists or artist’s autobiographies. During the festival we would also like to analyze the biographies of animals, plants, items, cities, places. The title is divided into two stems: greek bíos – life and gráphō – to write; this way we wanted to underline our another area of interest – the process of writing/directed biographies - how do visual and film artist begin their work, how does the whole process look like, how do they decide on the choice of moments essential for the narrative and how do they create memories, stories and what do they reject, what can be forgotten, left out.
