The Kraków Film Festival (Polish: Krakowski Festiwal Filmowy) is one of Europe's oldest events dedicated to documentary, animation, and other short film forms.[1] It has been organised year after year since 1961. The Artistic President of the festival is Krzysztof Gierat [pl].

It was in Kraków that Polish filmmakers such as Krzysztof Kieślowski, Wojciech Wiszniewski, Bogdan Dziworski [pl], and Marcel Łoziński began their career. It was also here that the directors of animated films, including Ryszard Czekała [pl], Jerzy Kucia [pl], Julian Antonisz (Antoniszczak), Piotr Dumała, and Zbigniew Rybczyński, winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film for the film Tango, made their debut.

Yet, such renowned documentary and animated filmmakers were not the only ones to participate and win prizes in Kraków, for the international festival laureates included also numerous artists who made their names as feature film directors: Pier Paolo Pasolini, Werner Herzog, Zoltán Huszárik, Jaromil Jireš, Claude Lelouch, Patrice Leconte, Mike Leigh, and the recent Oscar laureate, Jan Svěrák.

Since 1998, the Festival grants an international life achievement award called the "Dragon of Dragons". Its first laureate was Polish documentary maker Bohdan Kosiński [pl]. In 1999, the Prize was awarded to the classic Polish animator Jan Lenica. In 2000, the Dragon of Dragons Special Prize went to the French documentary maker Raymond Depardon. Future laureates include Jan Švankmajer (2001), Werner Herzog (2002), Stephen and Timothy Quay (2003), Albert Maysles (2004), Yuri Norstein (2005), and Kazimierz Karabasz (2006).

The unique character of the Kraków Film Festival derives not only from the programme of the competition screenings, the Dragon and Hobby Horse prizes awarded by an international and Polish jury, the Prix UIP Kracow, the FIPRESCI, and the FICC awards or numerous other prizes granted outside festival regulations, but also from the programme of accompanying events.
