Pole event bigger, better in ’95

The Polish Feature Film Festival, which took place in late November, is an annual competition in Gydnia, the sister city of Gdansk. All Polish-produced pics for that year are presented and awards are given. It is the key event for the Polish industry.

Festival director, Boleslaw Michalek, perhaps Poland’s most respected film critic and historian, says: “This year was better than the previous few years. We had a variety of films, highly commercial and artistic.” The prize for the best film went to Juliusz Machulski’s “Girl Guide,” a spy spoof.

“Tato” (Dad) earned nods for best director (Maciej Slesicki, in his debut), and for actor (perennial favorite leading man, Boguslaw Linda.)

For the first time in three years, a best screenplay award was presented. It went to Jan Jakub Kolski for his peasant fantasy, “Playing From a Plate” (Grajacy z talerza), an example of Slavic magic realism.

The journalist’s award went to “Charity” (Lagodna), directed by Mariusz Trelinski and based on a Dostoevsky short story.
