Polish female directors celebrated at Paris film festival

Paris, France – The 11th edition of Kinopolska, the Polish film festival organised by the Polish Institute in Paris, ended this weekend, with Piotr Domalewski taking home the coveted Prize of the Jury for Silent Night (Cicha Noc) and Olga Chajdas winning the Prize of the Public for Nina.

The spotlight of this year’s edition was on female directors, with four out of the six movies presented directed by women. The other films in competition were Ewa Bukowska’s 53 Wars (53 wojny), Agnieszka Smoczyńska’s Fugue (Fuga), Paweł Maślona’s Panik Attack (Atak paniki) and Jagoda Szelc’s Tower. A Bright Day (Wieza. Jasny dzien).

Organised by the Polish Institute in Paris, the festival was set in one of the French capital’s most iconic cinemas, Le Balzac, meters away from the Champs-Elysées.

Silent Night is Piotr Domalewski’s first feature film. It won the Golden Lions at last year’s Polish Film Festival in Gdynia.
