Mourning Andrzej Wajda

European cinema has lost a great filmmaker and the European Film Academy has lost a dear friend: Andrzej Wajda. 

The legendary Polish director was one of the founding members of the European Film Academy. He also received two European Film Awards: the EFA Lifetime Achievement Award in 1990 - at the 3rd European Film Awards in Glasgow, and the EFA Critics' Award 2009 - Prix FIPRESCI for SWEET RUSH (Tatarak) - at the 22nd European Film Awards in Essen & Bochum/Germany.

Andrzej Wajda passed away on Sunday.

 He was 90.
