Deputy PM Gliński: Poland supports development of creative industries
Polands creative sectors develop in a dynamic way and generate valuable jobs, Deputy Prime Minister and Culture Minister Piotr Gliński said on Wednesday while opening the 3rd CEE-China Creative Industry forum in Łódź, central Poland. The event, devoted to changes taking place in cities through the creative industries, is attended by delegations from 16 countries of Central and Eastern Europe and China. The four-day debates will take place in two Polish cities - Łódź, which was designated as the UNESCO City of Film and in the southern city of Katowice, which is the UNESCO City of Music.   According to Gliński, creative industries "contribute to the quality of life of residents and their cities, stimulate social sensitivity, and above all rely on creativity, innovation, talent and the imagination of artists, designers, engineers and scientists."   During the first two days of the forum meetings will be held in the revitalised spaces of old textile factories in Łódź and on the next two days in Katowice, where participants will be able to learn about former mining industry sites, currently turned into centres of cultural life. Referring to the programme of the event the deputy prime minister said that "creative industries in Poland can be compared to the mining industry in terms of GDP, and to gastronomy, hospitality or agriculture sectors in term of employment   Gliński stressed that, as the minister of culture, he introduced "a number of tools supporting the development of creative industries", including the "Development of Creative Sectors" programme addressed to small businesses, with a budget of some EUR 1.25 million. He also announced the launching this year of two fiscal incentives for audiovisual productions and cultural video games.   In addition to debates and meetings with experts, the forum will feature presentations of Polish design, handicrafts, virtual reality and music.   The delegations will also take part in the conference devoted to creative industries organised during the UNESCO Creative Cities Congress in Krakow and Katowice.   The Creative Sector Forum organised by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage takes place in Poland for the first time. Last year it was hosted by Beijing and two years ago by Belgrade. (PAP) mr/mf/

2018 WAFCA Winners
2018 WAFCA Winners

As a film critic of medium-low importance, one of my most sacred duties is participating in the Washington Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA) year-end awards extravaganza. During this hallowed time of year, I watch dozens of movies and mine my own recollection of the good, the bad, and the ugly to determine what, precisely, the best films of the year were. At the end of this grueling process—this death march through endless stacks of DVDs, searching for the rarest pearl in an ever-increasing sea of muck—we WAFCA members nominate up to five films/people in each category. The five films/people who earn the most votes in every category are then voted upon by the whole of the membership, the winners are chosen, the press release is sent out, and blessed, blessed relief descends upon us as we put the exercise to rest for 11 months.
