The festival’s main prize – the Crystal Globe for the best feature film - went to Le grand cahier, a German- Austrian-French coproduction directed by Hungarian film director Janos Szasz. An international jury, chaired by Polish director Agniezka Holland, gave the Special Jury Award to the British film A Field in England, directed by Ben Wheatley, while the Polish film Floating Skyscrapers by Tomasz Wasilewski received the main award in the East of the West section. The triple Oscar winning American director, scriptwriter and producer Oliver Stone received the Crystal Globe for Outstanding Artistic Contribution to World Cinema, as did American actor John Travolta, who was the biggest celebrity at the festival this year.
