Maria Sadowska, a talented film director and singer, has become the first winner of the Honorary Golden Angel, as part of the Bella Women section aimed at popularising the film professions held by women.
She is an interdisciplinary artist, who combines the roles of a film director, composer, producer, and singer. She is strong, charismatic, and talented. Honestly, the first ever Honorary Golden Angel awarded at the Tofifest IFF could not land in more deserving hands, comments Kafka Jaworska.
