Iñárritu’s “Birdman” to Open Poland’s Camerimage Festival

Alejandro González Iñárritu’s latest film is flying to Poland…

The 50-year-old Mexican filmmaker’s dramedy Birdman has been chosen as one of the two films to open the 2014 edition of Poland’s Camerimage Festival.


The critically acclaimed film which Iñárritu co-wrote and directed, will kick off the event November 15, alongside The Imitation Game.

Birdman, which also opened this year’s Venice Film Festival, stars Michael Keaton as an aging actor, once famous for playing an iconic superhero, who is trying to reignite his career and launch a Broadway play.

After receiving glowing reviews, Birdman is now being considered as a prime awards season contender.

The Camerimage Festival is the world’s leading film fest honoring the art of cinematography.

The 22nd edition runs November 15-22 in Bydgoszcz, Poland.
