The Dock’s Docs Gdańsk Remix contest award gala, screening of the winning submissions, and the closing ceremony of the European Culture Congress The remix contest organized in cooperation with the French Institut National de l’Audiovisuel (Ina) was open for submissions from February until April. When Poland took over the EU Presidency, recordings which captured events crucial to the history of Europe taking place in the Gdańsk Shipyards, from the late 1980s and up until present times, were released. The recordings came from the vast archives of Institut National de l’Audiovisuel, Video Studio Gdańsk, the Gałuszka/Jurkowski PGR_Art laborers duo, and the National Audiovisual Institute. Every person with an Internet connection could have told their story using documents, which are normally hidden away in archives.

In mid-June, an international jury composed of Nick Holdsworth (United Kingdom), Mathieu Gallet (France), Ryszard W. Kluszczyński (Poland), Zbigniew Rybczyński (Poland), and Wilhelm Sasnal (Poland) picked three winners of the contest. Damiano Ascenzi (nickname: Damon Wolf) took first place, Tomasz Wolszczak (nickname 8mm Group) took second place, while VisualHijack took third place. The winners will attend special training courses at the Institut de formation en audiovisuel & multimédia (Ina SUP) school in Paris and will receive VIP access at the European Culture Congress.
Dock’s Docs Gdańsk Remix is the next installment in a series initiated three years ago by the biggest radio and television archive in the world – Institut National de l’Audiovisuel – which enables people from around the world to creatively transform and process archival materials.
