Scorched, Canadian Film, Wins Top Prize at Warsaw Film Festival

The Canadian film “Scorched” ("Incendies") by director Denis Villeneuve won first prize in the international competition at this year's Warsaw Film Festival.

The results were announced at a press conference Saturday shortly after 2000h CET by chair of the jury, Antonia Bird.

Olivier Masset-Depasse was named best director for his film "Illegal", a Belgian, Luxembourg, French co-production. The Special Jury Award went to the screenplay of "Peryferie" (Outbound), a Romanian/Austrian co-production, written by Bogdan George Apetri and Tudor Voican.

The announcement of the awards was the culmination of a week where over 200 features, documentaries and short films from over fifty countries screened at the festival's two main venues, the Kinoteka multiplex, located inside Warsaw's historic Palace of Culture and Science, and the Multi-Kino at the upscale Zlote Terasy shopping complex. 

Film organizers reported very high turnout at most screenings, regardless of the time of day, and when the final numbers are in, this may prove to be a record year for the festival in terms of audience attendance.

Despite the easy and cheap availability of films on DVD and the internet, cinema revenues throughout Europe for 2010 are expected to surpass box office figures for 2009. And this year's festival attendance demonstrates that Polish audiences enjoy a morning, afternoon or evening at the cinema as much as their fellow Europeans. The festival wraps up on Sunday.
