Season wins best photography award at the 42nd Göteborg Film Festival!


 We are pleased to report that, during the 42nd Göteborg Film Festival, the Sven Nykvist Cinematography Award was presented to Ita Zbroniec-Zajt for her work on John Skoog’s film Season.

Zbroniec-Zajt’s atmospheric, artistic camerawork is truly enchanting. Each shot has been carefully thought out, and the poetic images temporarily allow us to join the community in Skåne county, where the film is set. The festival jury’s decision to award her the prize was swayed by the lyrical blend of documentary and fictional elements in the film.

This was merely the latest of this outstanding lady’s accomplishments. In 2016, Ita Zbroniec-Zajt won a Guldbagge (a so-called Swedish Oscar) for her photography on the film The Yard, and was also nominated for her work on My Aunt in Sarajevo and Granny’s Dancing on the Table. She studied cinematography at the State Higher School of Film, Television and Theatre in Łódź, and attended the Budapest Cinematography Masterclass with Vilmos Zsigmond and Elemér Ragályi in 2011.

Fixafilm has had the pleasure of working regularly with Ita Zbroniec-Zajt, including on My Aunt in SarajevoThe Yard and Little Crushes. For Season, our team of specialists did post-production work and provided DIT services on the film set.


Premieres at the 42nd Göteborg Film Festival


 The Göteborg Film Festival will take place from January 25 to February 4, and the programme will include premiere screenings of Jenifer Malmqvist’s My World in Yours and John Skoog’s Season. Fixafilm did postproduction work on both films, and provided DIT services on the film sets.

My World in Yours is a short film about an intimate relationship between two women. Shams, an immigrant asylum seeker in Sweden, tries to get back together with Stella, an immigration department employee, but the past of one of the women stands in the way of their happiness.

Season is an extremely poetic, beautifully shot, full-length collection of stories concerning life in a small village community in the Swedish county of Skåne.

What the two films have in common is that they were shot by multi-award-winner Ita Zbroniec-Zajt, who won a Guldbagge (at the so-called Swedish Oscars) in 2016 for her photography on the film The Yard, and was also nominated for her work on My Aunt in Sarajevo and Granny’s Dancing on the Table.
