50th KRAKOW FILM FEST WINNERS ANNOUNCED
The Krakow Film Festival ended yesterday closing its landmark 50th year. The oldest film festival in Poland, Krakow Fest is one of the most beloved events spotlighting the work of docs, animation and shorts in Europe.
This year’s Documentary Competition had two winners: Sanya and Sparrow, directed by Andriej Griazew, about the early consequences of capitalism in the Soviet Union, and the Golden Horn winner Beyond This Place, directed by Kaleo La Belle, about inter-generational drama between a father and son.
The winners of the Silver Horns in the same category were Rob Lemkin and Thet Sambath, who chronicled the fallout of post-war Cambodia in Enemies of the People, and Marc Isaacs for depicting the London big-business world in Men of the City.
For the International Short Film Competition, the winners were Out of Reach, directed by Jakub Stozek, and Jay Rosenblatt for The Darkness of a Day. The Best Short Animated Film was 1000 Voices by Tim Treves Hawkins, while Incident by a Bank, directed by Ruben Östlund, was named the Best Short Fiction Film.
