Andrey Plakhov, an art director of “East-West. Golden Arch” award, told about this year favourite:

A year passed since the first international award “East-West. Golden Arch” had taken place.
It appeared positive and stimulated us to continue. And background events have given us strength and supported our intentions. According to the expert jury choice “Cold War” directed by Pavel Pavlikovskiy (Poland) became a favorite film. Unfortunately, we observe the return of the epoch of political stand-off and global conflicts which as there seemed became a thing of the past just a while ago. That’s why it is more important to build cultural bridges and to strengthen cultural cooperation between the East and the West in the broadest sense of the word”.

“Cold War” by Pavel Pavlikovskiy received earlier a prize for the best film direction at the Cannes festival 2018, then the European Film Academy named it “The best European film” and granted awards for the direction, screenwriting and best female part. “Cold War” tells a love story which took place in postwar Poland between people of different origin and with different characters. During some years the destiny brought them together in different countries and cities – in Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris.
