Award-winning films in the programme of the 61st Krakow Film Festival

    The Krakow Film Foundation, the organiser of the 61st Krakow Film Festival announces the first films of this year’s programme! Among the many surprising debuts and long-expected international premieres, there are also 3 remarkable documentary films, which were awarded at the most important film festivals in the world: Sundance, IDFA and Berlinale. 

    From the Berlin International Film Festival, which ended last week, Olga Lucovnicova, the winner of the Golden Bear for the film “My Uncle Tudor” accepted the invitation to Krakow. The director introduces the viewers to the idyllic world of innocent nostalgia. In the intimate close-ups, the camera records images that seem to belong to another era.

    The Sundance Film Festival is the largest independent film festival in the USA. It is there where the premiere of the documentary film “Writing with Fire” by the duo Rintu Thomas and Sushmit Ghosh was held. In spite of the caste dependencies and the strong presence of patriarchy in one of the most conservative states of India, the protagonists of the film by the Dalit woman develop a digital press agency, building an independent and powerful medium in defiance of the tradition.
