BYDGOSZCZ, Poland – The 23rd edition of the International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, Camerimage, opened officially Saturday in this rainy Polish town.

During the fest opening, director Marcel Łoziński (“Father and Son on a Journey”) received the Award for Outstanding Achievements in Documentary Filmmaking, and Eve Stewart (“The Danish Girl”) took the stage to accept the Award to Production Designer with Unique Visual Sensitivity.

Additionally, as a part of the opening gala the festival screened Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies,” which was lensed by the director’s longtime d.p. Janusz Kamiński, and Tom Hooper’s “The Danish Girl,” shot by Danny Cohen.

“Bridge of Spies” was partially filmed in Poland, which doubled for postwar Germany.

A weeklong strike by German carrier Lufthansa, which normally transports a significant number of guests to the event, put a minor crimp on some arrivals. Additionally the Paris terrorist attacks caused concern among some attendees, including a jury member whose close friend was wounded during the slaughter at the Bataclan concert hall.

Camerimage is the biggest festival dedicated to cinematography and its cinematographers, although attendees from around the world include multiple directors, producers, actors and below-the-line agents.

The festival began in Torun, Poland, in 1993, then moved to Lodz. Since 2010 it has taken place in Bydgoszcz.
