Hollywood calling?

Kraków is in the running for Oscar glory, thanks to a movie co-produced by the city’s Festival Office.

In the Shadow, David Onriceck’s dark thriller set in 1950s communist Prague, has been nominated as the Czech entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category. It stars Ivan Trojan as police officer Hakl, whose routine investigation into a robbery leads him into the dark underbelly of the state security services.

Kraków Festival Office (Krakowskie Biuro Festiwalowe) was one of several Polish organisations which contributed to the movie. And the city’s own Alvernia Studios was in charge of video post-production.
