Roman Polanski awarded Golden Camera at Artfilm festival in Trenčín

The 15th annual international Artfilm Trenčianske Teplice-Trenčín film festival ended in the evening on June 30 with a ceremony at which Paris-born director Roman Polanski received a special Golden Camera award.

"I'm always pleased to receive an award for my work, but this lifetime-achievement award suggests that people want to get rid of me," said Polanski, adding that he doesn't plan to stop working yet.

Czech director and actor Jiří Menzel was also awarded a Golden Camera, while the "Actor's Mission' award went to Slovak actor Marián Labuda.
