The Polish Film Awards (also known as the Eagles) are as international as it gets this year, as the top three awards – Best Film, Best Director and Best Screenplay – have gone to Quo Vadis, Aida? [+leggi anche:

) was on board as the Polish partner of the project. In her moving acceptance speech, she said that she has noticed that people are getting used to the war in Ukraine, just like at a certain point they got used to war in the former Yugoslavia, and this should not happen.

Magnesia also snagged the Best Make-up Award (for Waldemar Pokromski and Agnieszka Hodowana), while two Eagles went to Back to Those Days, for Best Actor (Maciej Stuhr, giving, as he put it, his most important performance) and Best Music (Marcin Masecki).
