History and achievements
Fixafilm is the brainchild of three friends: Wojtek Janio, Łukasz Ceranka and Andrzej Łucjanek, who decided to bring their dreams and their passion for film to life.
They’re the reason why Fixafilm is one of the industry’s most valued companies in the Central and Eastern European market.
The crowning achievements of our work are the nominations, awards and distinctions we’ve won.
We’re exceptionally proud that our efforts are noted and appreciated both on the Polish market and internationally.

Fixafilm won the Polish Film Institute Prize in 2013 in the digital restoration category. And we’ve been nominated for it as many as four times. We’re delighted with our nomination for the Focal International Award 2018 for the best restoration for Moomins and the Winter Wonderland, which was shortlisted for an Oscar.
We’re also proud that our leaders, the founders of Fixafilm, are known on the international scene as outstanding specialists in restoration. This bears fruit in their numerous presentations during fairs and conferences, and publications in trade media (Arri Archive Workshop, Film Pro, Arri News).
