Jury of 2014 Localizations Competion

Olga Bołądź

Olga Bołądź was born in 1984, in Toruń. She is a versatile actress and a graduate from the Ludwik Solski State Drama School in Kraków, Instituto del Teatro in Barcelona (Spanish theatre school), and the Stella Adler Academy in Los Angeles. She is a winner of the honorary award of the President of Toruń – Flisak of TOFIFEST. We could admire her performances in numerous theatre plays, including Najzwyklejszy Cud (Plainest Miracle) by Natalia Łapina (St. Petersburg), Niby Alaska (Quasi-Alaska) by Jan Peszek, and Oczyszczenie (Cleansing) by Peter Zelenka. According to her own words, she cares more about roles than “productions”, which results in her working very often for independent directors. She is very convincing in portraying characters that are so much different from her real-life personality. She starred in the following films on the big screen: The Corrupted by Jarosław Żamojda, The Woman Who Dreamt of a Man by Per Fly, The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler by J. K. Harrison, Flying Pigs by Anna Kazejak, or Pixels by Jacek Lusiński. She has also played in TV series, including On the Edge, Time of Honour, and Medics. In 2014, Służby specjalne hit cinemas, in which Olga Bołądź gave a daring performance, as second lieutenant Aleksandra Lach a.k.a. “Białko”.

He collaborated with Adek Drabinski on a TV film Kalipso. This resulted in working a popular TV series Na Wspólnej and a full-length debut The French Trick.
