Krafftowna's Visit and Modjeska Prize - Aftermath
The visit of Barbara Krafftowna - Polish Film Festival and 2012 Modjeska Prize was very successful and enjoyable for everyone involved. Many photos were taken and an album is in preparation.
The delightfully witty and charming actress "stole the show" at the Opening Gala of the Polish Film Festival on October 9, 2012 and at the Modjeska Club Party on October 13, 2012.
Barbara Krafftowna received her 2012 Modjeska Prize at the Opening of the Polish Film Festival in Los Angeles, at the Egyptian Theater, on October 9, 2012. Our award was the first to be given, just before the opening speeches and award ceremonies of the Festival itself. The actress, in black evening dress, complete with twenties-style jet-hat, feather boa, and fishnet stockings read a short thank you note in Polish, translated by the Emcee of the evening, Mr. Banas. It was quite a moment for us all!
Pictures from Barbara Krafftowna's visit to California are in our Picasa Web Album:
