The jury award went to The Mover by Latvia’s Dāvis Sīmanis Jr, a 2018 drama based on a true story of a Latvian dock worker who, with the help of his family and his friends, rescued 60 Jews during Nazi German occupation of Latvia in World War II.

The audience award went to German director Lars Kraume’s 2018 film The Silent Revolution. The film, set in communist-era East Germany, is based on a true account of high school students who during class have a moment of silence for the victims of the 1956 Hungarian revolution.

The festival’s jury representative Piotr Szkopiak said that “when you watch such films together, you notice how many different stories are yet to be told.”

“It's not just history - these are topics that are important today, maybe even more than ever,” he added.

Ten competition films were screened during the festival, which ran from October 22 to 25 at Warsaw’s Muranów cinema.

The festival was organized by Poland’s Institute of National Remembrance (IPN).

The “Echoes of Katyn” festival was launched a decade ago as a national event. This year, it went international for the first time to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the Katyn massacre of Polish officers in Soviet Russia during World War II.
