In light of how posts are disappearing I will post this quick :)Remember this is a google translation.

- How Keanu Reeves was at the festival?
- There was a special occasion - not us he was invited, he contacted us. This is quite a funny story. Guy came to the festival, something like Bruce Willis, only shorter. We called him Bruce (it seems that they mean Chris Kenelli) and he said that Keanu Reeves probably would want to come to Bydgoszcz. It was a few days before the festival and no one seriously believed it. We joked something - say, the two of you will be as Reeves Willis. And then he says he will call Keanu in 17 hours. We sat down at the computer, checked on You Tube as the voice of Keanu, not to be trapped. We were sure it was a joke. When the phone rang, it was really Reeves. He said he wanted to come. We were at a loss - all hotel rooms were occupied, we could not think of anything. And he says, "I just can not sleep in a sleeping bag" and immediately rented the plane, and two days later was here.

He liked Bydgoszcz?
- I think so. In addition, he had the opportunity to gather material for a documentary about the evolution kinotehnolgy. He spoke to the operator, who was very much here. At that moment, he had no precise idea of ​​how the film would look like and it rocks, the festival has helped him to understand that he has to shoot more. This film will be shown at the opening of the festival this year. Keanu will come again.

25 November, 2012 | By Michael Rosser

Director David Lynch heaped praise on Poland�s Plus Camerimage festival as he picked up a lifetime achievement award - and Keanu Reeves spoke a little Polish.

Walking on stage at the Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz to the Twin Peaks theme, the surrealist director of Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive was met with a standing ovation by the 1,000-strong audience.

�This is so moving,� said Lynch. �The Camerimage gang have been my friends since 2000 � even though when I first came here they lost my luggage.

�I would like to offer my congratulations to this great festival on its 20th anniversary. Every year this festival gets better and better.

�Long live cinema! Long live Camerimage film festival!�

Earlier in the opening ceremony, which showcased the juries and entries for this year�s coveted Golden Frog awards, Lynch was presented the key to the city by mayor Rafal Bruski.

�In Poland, the symbol of being a good host is to give the keys to one�s own house,� said the mayor. �In the hands of David Lynch, the city will be safe� and I can spend the time watching movies.�

Accepting the key, Lynch warned: �It is dangerous to give me the keys to your city � but this is beautiful.�

The director, whose last feature was Inland Empire in 2006, is attending the festival for a retrospective of his films. An exhibition of his lithographs is also being shown as part of the event.

Keanu Reeves

The opening film of the festival, which runs until Dec 1, was the Keanu Reeves-produced documentary Side by Side.

The Matrix actor stepped up, ahead of the screening, to showcase the nominees for the two �debut� competitions.

�It�s my privilege to introduce the Plus Camerimage cinematographer debut competition,� said Reeves, before TV presenter and host for the evening Grażyna Torbicka added: �Shall we do it in Polish?�

Following a tentative �Let�s try,� Reeves struggled with some of the longer words but drew rapturous applause for the effort.

Side by Side, which explores the decline of film stock in the wake of digital, was followed by the Polish premiere of Ang Lee�s Life of Pi.

Plus Camerimage first launched in 1993. The first seven editions of the festival were held in Torun. In 2000, founder and festival director Mark Żydowicz moved the event to Lodz and settled on its current home of Bydgoszcz in 2010
