When and Where?

Mark your calendars, friends. This cinema extravaganza is happening from November 16-23, 2024, in the charming town of Torun, Poland. If you don’t know where that is, just follow the trail of cinephiles!

A Powerhouse Par Excellence

Let’s get something straight: Cate Blanchett is an absolute legend. We’re talking about the star of Tár, Blue Jasmine, Carol, Elizabeth—and that’s just scratching the surface. She’s bagged two Oscars, been a co-artistic director for the Sydney Theatre Company, and rocks at producing through her company, Dirty Films. Seriously, this woman has a resume that could put anyone to shame.

Marek Żydowicz’s Ego-Buster

EnergaCamerimage director Marek Żydowicz cannot stop singing praises: “Cate Blanchett is an outstanding artist who defies all definitions.” Marek’s basically like, “Look, she’s super awesome, and we’re thrilled she said yes to being the jury president!”

Cate’s Cinematographer Crew

Now, Cate knows her way around some of the best cinematographers in the biz. We’re talking Remi Adefarasin (Elizabeth), Ed Lachman (Carol), and Florian Hoffmeister (Tár)—all have lit up the screen in ways that make you wanna weep, or at least throw an Oscar at them. And guess what? These geniuses have also been celebrated at EnergaCamerimage. Cate practically lives in a world of visual poetry.

Cate’s Fever Dream Fantasy

In her own words, Blanchett says, “Films are lightning in a bottle, and I have had the profound creative privilege of working with some of the great lightning catchers.” Translation: This gig is like a dream come true where Cate gets to hang out with the gods of cinematography.

Joining the Club of Legends

This ain’t EnergaCamerimage’s first rodeo with big names. Previous jury presidents include the ever-so-fabulous Juliette Binoche in 2022 and Cate’s Tár co-star Nina Hoss in 2021. It’s pretty much a red carpet of legends here.
