Barańska, Gajos, Kilar oraz “Nights and Days” are the winners of the Diamond Lions!
Forty years of the Gdynia Film Festival (which was held in Gdańsk before) are at the same time four decades of the Polish cinema. Out of thousands of titles, roles and musical motifs that have been accompanying us for all those years, the television viewers and Internet users have chosen their favourites!
Diamond Lions Winners:
“Nights and Days”, dir. Jerzy Antczak
Janusz Gajos ( “Millionaire”, “Interrogation” and “Escape from the “Liberty” Cinema”)
Jadwiga Barańska (“Nights and Days”)
Wojciech Kilar (“The Promised Land”)
The aim of the plebiscite is to select the favourites of the audience out of the previous Gdynia Film Festival prizewinners, in four categories: film, actor, actress and music. The first stage of the plebiscite was held on the Onet.pl portal in June this year. In the second stage, voting could be done via text messaging, the Onet.pl portal and the TVP Kultura website from 28th August till 11th September this year.
Diamond Lions were given out on 14th September 2015, during the official Opening Gala of the 40th Gdynia Film Festival. During the ceremony, Blue Lions were also given out for the Festival patrons – PKN Orlen and PKO Bank Polski.
40th GFF is held from 14th to 19th September 2015.
