, given by a Jury of European exhibitors, and the
Laterna Magica Award
. The Europa Cinemas network, supported by MEDIA Plus Programme of the European Union, includes 479 cinemas in 29 countries. The award has a concrete dimention - Europa Cinemas created a mechanism to encourage its members to screen the awarded film.
The Jury said in a statement, "This is a director with real promise, maintaining the long and proud tradition of great Polish cinema. TRICKS is a touching and intimate look at everyday working class life in the Polish countryside, an emotive insight into the new Europe. Jakimowski´s direction of his cast is particularly impressive, as is the cinematography by Adam Bajerski."
