Swedish Documentaries in Krakow

And the festival in Krakow has decided to put focus on Sweden at the upcoming festival. Here is a clip from the press release of today, with a photo of Polish-Swedish Jerzy Sladkowski taken last week, when he presented his “Don Juan” at Magnificent7 in Belgrade. Next to him master of cinematography of “Don Juan”, Wojciech Staron, and festival director Zoran Popovic:

This year's special guest at the 56th Krakow Film Festival will be the cinematography of Sweden. Within the frames of the section, the latest documentary and short films will be shown, as well as the programme for children and teenagers, and a selection of student films. The representatives of film industry from Sweden and Poland will meet at a joint conference.

“This is one of the most energetic cinemas in Europe, achieving many international successes, open to co-production, offering diverse and rich cinema," says Barbara Orlicz-Szczypuła, the director of the programme office.  "We found it out ourselves in the last five years, when three times the Swedish films won the most important awards in Krakow: in 2013 Tora Mårtens was given the Golden Horn for the film "Colombianos," in 2012, the same award went to Peter Gerdehag for his film "Women with Cows," and in 2011, the Silver Horn was given to Marcus Lindeen for the film "Regretters." Besides, we have close contacts with filmmakers who are connected to Sweden in their creative work, such as the eminent documentary filmmaker Jerzy Śladkowski, who repeatedly presented his films at our festival, and Magnus von Horn, awarded in Krakow for his short films, whose feature-film début "The Here After" now wins the most important trophies both in Poland and in Sweden."

56th Krakow Film Festival is held from May 29 to June 5, 2016.
