The AwardThe award is meant for those who have worked to raise the prestige and industry connections of the festival in Poland and abroad. The minimalist brass statue, created by Stanisław Juszczak, shows two cog wheels – one cannot turn without setting the other in motion. It is an interconnected system, in which success depends on cooperation and mutual assistance. In fact, the award is dedicated to all those who are friends and facilitators, who create lasting connections with the world and constantly strive for more of them.
“The FMF Ambassador is a person or institution which allows us to draw closer to the global world of music and film, aiding in cooperation and enabling new contacts. They are a guide to the process of learning, who helps the festival in achieving long-term goals. Diego Navarro is definitely such a person, along with his entire festival team,” said Robert Piaskowski, artistic director of the FMF.
