features/shorts/commercials

“I am the happiest when my work ignites conversation.”

One of the most acclaimed Polish directors of photography. Member of European Film Academy. He has collaborated with film directors such as: Małgorzata Szumowska, Ari Folman, Krzysztof Skonieczny, Jacek Borcuch and internationally acclaimed actors such as Harvey Keitel, Joanna Kulig and Robin Wright.

His sensitivity and outstanding talent were appreciated by the Polish Society of Cinematographers and awarded at many prestigious film festivals from Mexico to Berlinale and from Sundance to Polish Film Festival in Gdynia. Eager to experience different cultures and styles and above all – addicted to film set, Michał loves to get involved in diverse projects. It could be a horror movie, a commercial or nostalgic film etude.

2020 has been an extraordinary year for him. “The Other Lamb”, directed by Małgorzata Szumowska was nominated to the Best Film Award at San Sebastian International Film Festival and London Film Festival with Englert’s cinematography welcoming some great reviews around the world (New York Times called his work “ecstatic” and “hyper-seductive” and LA Times praised “the deftly balanced colors and symmetrical compositions“ captured in the film.)

This autumn the latest project of Szumowska/Englert duo – “Never Gonna Snow Again” with Michał both as a DP and co-director, will premiere in the main competition of the 77th Venice Film Festival. It has also been announced Polish candidate for an Oscar and was this year’s selection of Telluride Film Festival.

In between his feature projects Michał enjoys working on TV commercials. His portfolio includes ads for Mastercard, ING, Danone, Knorr and McDonald’s, to name a few.
