about the jury
A highly focused, sought-after colorist for prominent commercials, fashion films, music videos and long-form projects alike, Karol Cybulski brings a rich photographic sensibility to every project; always placing story at the heart of each and every decision she makes.
After studying at Bournemouth Film School, Karol moved to Berlin for her post-grad in Colour Grading and science at the Deutsche Film und Fernsehakademie (DFFB) before joining Cheat in 2018.
Since then, she has worked consistently to elevate and hone her craft – collaborating with brands such as Bentley, Rapha, and Moncler, and recently branching out into long-form, grading the 2022 theatrical feature She Is Love starring Haley Bennett and Sam Riley, as well as a forthcoming Netflix series starring Stephen Fry.
In 2022, she was one of just three shortlisted for Best New Colorist at the Kinsale Sharks, and at the inaugural Young Arrows Awards 2022 she was shortlisted in the Color Grading category for her work on Calling Attendance for Education Above All.
