We received 87 valid submissions from 28 different European countries: Video Portraits (documentary) on My multilingualism and Video Poems (fiction) on The language I dream in.

Voting is open until February 14th on the POLYGLOT website.

18 winners will be selected in total – 9 by the public and 9 by a special jury. Already confirmed for the jury are Vivian Paulissen (manager of the European Cultural Foundation’s Youth & Media Programme - The Netherlands), Barnabás Tóth (filmmaker and actor - Hungary), Radka Weiserová (head of production, Fresh Film Fest - Czech Republic) and Massimiliano Spotti (researcher in linguistic ethnography, University of Jyväskylä - Finland).

The selected young filmmakers aged 18-35 will participate in the “Cine-Boat” documentary filmmaking workshop travelling across the archipelago of Turku (Finland) in June 2011, to celebrate its status as European Capital of Culture.
