Nominations for the Eagles - Polish Film Academy Awards, a.k.a. "Polish Oscars", were announced on February 6th. Three films will compete for the best documentary award: "Opera about Poland" by Piotr Stasik, "Over the Limit" by Marta Prus and "The Prince and the Dybbuk" by Elwira Niewiera and Piotr Rosołowski.
It is a winter season also for festivals, that's why in February Polish documentary films will only visit a few places abroad. Check out which festivals will show Polish productions this month.
On 21 January the 17th International Festival Zeichen der Nacht finished in Berlin. One of the awards went to Jakub Radej's short documentary "Dust".
