Pawel Ziemilski is studying film direction at National Film School in Łodz. He has been dividing his time between directing short films, finishing his Master’s at the Łodz School, and social film projects in different marginalised milieus. This latter activity recently evolved into a fund for youth from a small village where he first started giving cinema workshops in 2009. Several of Ziemilski’s documentary films deal with the places and people he has come to know through such projects.
Doc Alliance is a creative partnership of 7 key European documentary film festivals. Our aim is to advance the documentary genre, support its diversity and promote quality creative documentary films.
