EnergaCAMERIMAGE WITH POLISH FILM INSTITUTE’S AWARD
Wednesday September 18th, 2019
We are pleased to announce that the 26th edition of the EnergaCAMERIMAGE Festival was honored with the Award of the Polish Film Institute in the Film Event category. The official ceremony took place on September 17, as a part of the 44th edition of the Polish Feature Films Festival in Gdynia. The award was handed to Marek Żydowicz, the Festival Director, who then dedicated it to the residents of Toruń.
The Polish Film Institute Awards are a special distinction in the film industry that appreciate the work of people and institutions unrelated to film production. These are the only Polish awards that aim to highlight the special achievements of individuals and institutions supporting the development of Polish cinematography, promoting its achievements, and facilitating the society's access to Polish film productions. The awards have been given since 2008. Candidates may be submitted by cultural institutions, film schools, local authorities, non-governmental institutions related to culture and other entities as well as people operating in the cultural sector.
Our festival has been awarded by the Institute for the third time: during the first edition in 2008 we received the award in the category of International Film Event, and in 2012 - the Special Award.
