The American Film Festival (AFF) in Wrocław, Poland - the first event in Eastern and Central Europe focused entirely on independent American cinema - closed on Nov, 18th with the Polish premiere of Ben Affleck's Argo.

The audience award for the Best Narrative Feature ($10,000) went to Colin Trevorrow for Safety Not Guaranteed, while the audience award for the Best Documentary Feature ($5,000) went to David France for How to Survive a Plague.

This year, 54 films were screened at the New Horizons cinema in Wrocław, the home of the festival. 36 films had their Polish, two European, one international and one world premiere at the festival.

The festival also attracted many high-profile Polish premieres, such as Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, John Hillcoat's Lawless, Abel Ferrara's 4:44 Last Day on Earth, Richard Linklater's Bernie and Michel Gondry's The We and the I.
