2011 Warsaw Film Festival Prize Winners

“Rose”, directed by Wojciech Smarzowski, won the top prize in the International Competition at the 27th Warsaw Film Festival, which wrapped today.

A historical drama set in the picturesque Mazury region of northern Poland (formerly East Prussia) in the summer of 1945 just after the Second World War, the film's protagonist Rose is a Pole whose German husband has been killed in the war, leaving her alone on their farm. As Soviet soldiers and locals circle around the farm, she is grateful for the help provided by Tadeusz, a former officer in the Polish Home Army and survivor of the Warsaw uprising who is attempting to hide his identity.

The Best Director Award went to Argentinian Santiago Amigorena for “Another Silence” (“Otros Silencios”), the story of a Canadian police officer seeking to avenge the murder of her husband and son, which takes her to the Argentina-Bolivia border region.
The Special Jury Award for Best Actor went to Robert Więckiewicz for his performance in “Courage” (“Wymyk”), directed by Greg Zgliński, a story about two brothers whose lives are changed after witnessing a violent incident on a train. The film was also honored with this year's Ecumenical Jury Award.

The 1-2 Competition winner for best first or second feature went to the Russian film “Twilight Portrait”, directed by Angelina Nikonova.

The Free Spirit Competition winner was the Argentinian film “Pompeya”, directed by Tamae Garateguy.

The Best Documentary Feature Award went to “A Bitter Taste of Freedom”, a Swedish-Russian co-production, directed by Marina Goldovskaya.

The Short Films Competition Grand Prize winner was “The Making of Longbird” (UK), directed by Will Anderson. The Best Animated Short Film Award went to “Brandt Rhapsodie” (France), directed by Francois Avril. The Best Live Action Short Film Award went to “Silent River” (Romania), directed by Anca Miruna Lazarescu.
The NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema) Award for best Asian film in competition at the WFF went to “No. 89 Shimen Road”, a Hong Kong-Dutch co-production about a 16 year old boy coming of age in Shanghai in the summer of 1989, directed Haolun Shu.

The FIPRESCI AWARD, chosen by the International Federation of Film Critics jury for best Eastern European debut went to Avé, a French-Bulgarian co-production, directed by Konstantin Bojanov, about an art student from Sofia who meets a beautiful runaway girl on the road while hitchhiking, who also happens to be a compulsive liar.

The awards ceremony was the culmination of this year's festival, which screened feature films, shorts, documentaries and animation from around the world over a ten day period. Audience attendance was strong again this year, with many sold out screenings, as film fans from Warsaw and around Poland turned out for the biggest film event of the year, which continues to distinguish itself a leading venue for directors to showcase new work. Congratulations to all the winners.
