The popular seaside resort of Ko這brzeg hosted its second film festival featuring thrillers and crime movies Aug. 8-11.

Over the four days, festival-goers saw a total of 30 movies, including the latest productions from Poland and Europe and popular Polish action comedies along with a selection of television serials. There were also meetings with actors and filmmakers hosted by well-known Polish film critic Tomasz Raczek. Other highlights included a Night Movie Marathon on the local beach and an award ceremony.

Director Ryszard Bugajski won a prize at the festival for what the organizers described as his ability to make artistically ambitious films that appeal to wide audiences. Two special Polish Movie Icon awards were handed to well-known actors Gra篡na Szapo這wska and Janusz Gajos.

Polish productions shown during the festival included Wojciech Smarzowski’s Drog闚ka (Traffic Department), Ryszard Bugajski’s Uk豉d zamkni皻y (Closed Circuit), Eugeniusz Korin’s S瘼 (The Vulture), W豉dys豉w Pasikowski’s Pok這sie (Aftermath), and Maciej Kowalewski’s Trzy siostry T (Three Sisters T). European thrillers included A Hijacking by Danish director Tobias Lindholm, Black’s Game by Oskar Thor Axelsson, and German film Guardian Angel by actor-turned-director Til Schweiger. The festival also featured In the Shadow, this year’s Czech Oscar entry for Best Foreign Language Film by director David Ondricek, and the entire first season of the Hannibal television series.
