We’re all jurors now!

6 feature films, 32 short animations, 30 music videos and 7 video games – all that’s once again waiting to be judged by the festival audience. For the fourth time, Ars Independent will allow you to choose the winners of the international Black Horse competitions. Welcome, jurors!

You will be confronted with works by debuting authors or new titles in four multimedia categories. The competitors were chosen by our programmers and curators, whose minds and hearts were focused on showing you unobvious, engaging art. We are aware that their originality and playfulness may not endear them to everyone. But this is precisely why we want you to have the final word in choosing the winners! Every nominee is a dark horse.

You will determine who will receive the title and statue of the Black Horse, alongside a monetary prize of 500 euros in all four competitions. Their fates are in your hands!

The only thing you need to do to become jurors is pick up the voting cards, which will be given to you by the festival’s volunteers at the relevant events. After festival screenings you can throw your votes into ballot boxes. At the competition game exhibition – the voting cards will be located at the PCs, while the ballot box (in the form of an old computer) will be in the middle of the gallery.

The event is organized by the cultural institution Katowice City of Gardens and the City of Katowice.
