Bromski wins award in California
Jacek Bromski has won the Best Director award for One Way Ticket to the Moon at the 13th Tiburon International Film Festival in California.
The film, which won both the screenplay award at the Gdynia Film Festival and the Project London award for the film with the greatest potential for distribution in Great Britain, went on general release in the UK and Ireland in late April this year.



A gala awards ceremony held on 18th April brought the 13th Tiburon festival to a close. Appreciation of Polish cinema is becoming something of a tradition at the event. In 2012, Marcin Janiec won the Best Animation award for The Game, while Jan Kidawa-Błonski's Little Rose scored a hat trick in 2011, taking Best Film and Best Director, with Magdalena Boczarska receiving the Best Actress award. The year before that, Olgierd Łukaszewicz won Best Actor for General Nil, while Ryszard Bugajski was named Best Director. So it seems that awards for direction are something of a Polish speciality.

The Tiburon International Film Festival seeks to heighten cultural awareness and create a platform for independent filmmakers from different countries so that they can “express their talent and vision” through film. The films that the organisers invite to take part in the competition open up the possibility of both a greater understanding of the world, other cultures and other backgrounds and of a dialogue in the spirit of tolerance. “Understanding the World through Film”®… thus runs the festival's motto.
