The PFI Awards are given for significant accomplishments in the popularization and promotion of Polish cinematography. This year, the prizes were awarded for the 10th time at a gala held during the 42nd Polish Film Festival in Gdynia.
Polish Film Magazine is an English publication created and curated by Film Commission Poland. Its main goal is to promote the Polish film industry and the contemporary achievements of Polish cinematography. In the magazine we cover current international ventures linked to the Polish film industry (coproductions and services) and publish interviews with national and foreign filmmakers working in Poland. We also present a thematic survey of Polish locations and a practical guide to the film industry. PFM is aimed at foreign producers and filmmakers, festival programmers, and representatives of institutions; it familiarizes the achievements of Polish cinematography and filmmakers in a light and attractive manner.
The editor-in-chief is Ola Salwa and among the PFM contributors there are Polish and foreign writers such as Darek Kuźma, Anna Bielak, Urszula Lipińska, Artur Zaborski, Sebastian Smoliński, Anna Serdiukow, Jakub Majmurek, Michał Oleszczyk, Will Tizard, Carmen Gray or Michael Brooke.
“We are very glad that our work has been recognized. Together with the whole team and our collaborators, we put a lot of effort to make every issue of Polish Film Magazine interesting and visually appealing” – says Tomasz Dąbrowski, head of Film Commission Poland. “We would like to thank the Polish Film Institute, regional film commissions and our advertisers for their support. We hope to continue this cooperation.”
To date, there have been five issues of the magazine, which is distributed at the biggest film festivals, for example in Berlin, Cannes or Toronto, or is available in the digital form on the FCP website or through issuu.
