Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers


Plus Camerimage

The International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography PLUS CAMERIMAGE is the greatest and most recognized festival dedicated to the art of cinematography and its creators - cinematographers. PLUS CAMERIMAGE contributes to the growth of cinematographers' prestige. The unconventional format of the Festival, which awards films according to their visual, aesthetic and technical values, has turned out to be an alternative for traditional film festivals. As all our guests emphasize - PLUS CAMERIMAGE is unique. The Festival proves to be a great forum not only for presentation but also for further development of international moviemaking. PLUS CAMERIMAGE helps young filmmakers and integrates the community of those already recognized, allowing them to explore new artistic areas.

Jerzy Skolimowski graduated from ethnography faculty of the
Warsaw University and studied directing at Lodz Film School. He worked
with the most outstanding Polish filmmakers - wrote a screenplay for Andrzej Wajda's Innocent Sorcerers, co-wrote the screenplay for the famous Knife in the Water directed by Roman Polanski. In 1964 Skolimowski made his debut as a director of the feature film Rysopis which was shot in parts as his graduation work. He described his next films Walkover and Barrier as a “mental landscape" that told stories of people searching in vain for their own place in society.

When communist censorship banned his movie Ręce do góry
in 1967, he left Poland to work in Italy, Great Britain and USA. During
this period he made films awarded at the biggest international film
festivals. In 1967 he received the Golden Bear Award for the film Le Depart. Later his films were also recognized at Cannes Film Festival: The Shout was awarded by the Cannes Jury in 1978, Moonlighting was granted the award for the best script in 1982 and The Lightship
received Jury's special award in 1985. Skolimowski is also a laureate
of the Polish Film Award - Eagle, which was granted to him in 2003 for
“independancy of a Polish filmmaker whose professional achievements in
Poland and abroad have a world-wide dimension".

In 2008 the director decided to come back to Poland to shoot Four Nights with Anna, which won the Eagle award for best director. Also the film's DP, Adam Sikora won the Eagle for the best cinematography. The film was presented in the Main Competition and Polish Films Competition at Plus Camerimage 2008. In December 2009 he started shooting a political thriller Essential Killing starring Vincent Gallo and Emmanuelle Seigner. The film has been lined up for this year's Venice Film Festival and will compete for the Golden Lion.

Jerzy Skolimowski, famous for his work as a filmmaker, is a versatile
artist who published several books of poems, short stories and plays. He
is also a successful painter. A book on his life and work will be
published by the organizers of the 18th Edition of Plus Camerimage.
