His next film, My Summer of Love, won a BAFTA for Outstanding British Film of the Year, amongst a string of prestigious prizes.
Between 2004 and 2007, Pawel Pawlikowski was a Creative Arts Fellow at Oxford Brookes University.
He is fluent in six languages: his native Polish, as well as French, English, German, Italian and Russian.
