Schaeffer (on film) wins prestigious award


SOLO, a documentary about the famous avantgarde composer (and dramatist) Bogusław Schaeffer by Polish director Maciej Pisarek has won the Grand Prize at the 27th FIFA (International Festival of Films on Art in Montreal).



Another Polish (and musical!) accent was the Award for Best Portrait, taken home by the creators of a French film about the Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski: PIOTR ANDERSZEWSKI – VOYAGEUR INTRANQUILLE (directed by Bruno Monsaingeon). Earlier this year the film won a FIPA D’OR Grand Prize (in the Performing arts category) at the FIPA (International Festival of Audiovisual Programs in Biarritz).


The festival ended on 29th March but I only discovered all this today (thanks mainly to the POLMIC site).

Full list of award-winners from this year’s FIFA here.

And here’s a link to a post on Schaeffer from The Rambler (includes a download of one of Schaeffer’s pieces).
