This is the last festival in Bydgoszcz, maybe also in Poland. The Energa Camerimage Festival ends in Bydgoszcz,
During the closing ceremony of the 26th edition of the festival, Marek Żydowicz, director of the event, talked about his future. He announced that it was the last festival in Bydgoszcz.
– You can't drive a Mercedes by 5 percent of its value, that's why dear friends – wherever you are – if you go back to your cities, to your hometown small and large, look around if you find a place that similar to Opera Nova, please contact Camerimage. We will come there. I believe, dear friends, that when we left Toruń, when we left Lodz, you will follow us, because the place is not important to you, but the soul, the idea of this festival. Thousands of young people, thousands of students and dozens of masters or hundreds master after 25 years of organizing this festival. I have to say that I don't see a perspective for myself in Poland – added the Jew.
Recall that the lower budget allocated for the festival by the city of Bydgoszcz was the effect of a letter of intention signed last December, concerning the construction of the Festival Center in Toruń by National Minister of Culture and Heritage Piotr Gliński, President Toruń Michał Zaleski and head of Tumult Foundation Marek Żydowicz.
