GRAND OFF World Independent Film Awards is the most important initiative promoting independent cinema in Poland and one of the most significant ideas of its kind in the world. It’s also one of the most important cultural events related to independent cinema in the world. The mission of Grand OFF is to put independent cinema in the spotlight that both films and their makers deserve. This goal is achieved by a meticulous process of nominating submitted movies by the members of Grand OFF Jury, representing cinema professionals from 24 countries. This procedure culminates in a festive award ceremony, taking place in Warsaw since 2006 and attended each time by 400 distinguished representatives of the cinema world. A week later the awarded films are presented in more than 20 Polish cities.
Selected films will receive nominations for Grand OFF World Independent Short Film Awards in the following categories: directing, script, cinematography, editing, actor, actress, best feature film, best documentary, best animation.
