None, really, as a Hollywood movie is bound to spoil even the best story.

cinematographers definitely. Janusz Kamiński is nominated for Oscar this year, again :)
Other names are: Sławomir Idziak, Andrzej Bartkowiak, Paweł Edelman, Adam Holender, Andrzej Sekuła, Witold Sobociński, Dariusz Wolski, Jerzy Zieliński.

Directors: Jerzy Skolimowski (Essential Killing) ...but wait! Just cheked and it's not a Hollywood movie!
Agnieszka Holland (The Secret Garden)... but it was almost 20 years ago. Can't think of anybody else...

Composers: Jan A.P. Kaczmarek (an Oscar for Finding Neverland), Bronisław Kaper (worked in 50s-60s, an Oscar for Lili), Henryk Wars (50s-70s). There are many good, acclaimed movie music composes but they don't work in Hollywood.

What are the most popular Polish movies in Poland right now?

In Darkness.

The story of Jan Pasek's otter would make a great movie, although the sad ending would probably preclude Hollywood's developing it without revision.

In Darkness.

...and it is directed by Agnieszka Holland...

What are the most popular Polish movies in Poland right now?

"W ciemności" - In darkness and "Róża" ...and in the near future :) "Hans Kloss - Stawka większa niż śmierć" :)

There is no question about best polish movies ever, but I will answer it anyway;)
Putting aside classics like Wajda and Hoffman movies' I would pick "Trzy kolory:Niebieski", "Seksmisja", "Miś", "Boża Podszewka", "Dzień świra" and "Symetria".

Who are Poland's biggest stars currently.

I don't consider polish actors as stars, but more like craftsmen. The best ones are: Jerzy Stuhr, Andrzej Chyra, Robert Więckiewicz, Krystyna Janda, Marek Kondrat, Agnieszka Krukówna, Karolina Gruszka.

Who are the best Polish directors

Krzysztof Zanussi, Wojciech Smarzowski, Andrzej Fidyk (documentaries), Jan Jakub Kolski. Funny thing, my best polish movies were mostly not directed by my best directors :) There are movies I can watch numerous times, and there are directors, whos every movie I watch with pleasure:)

Not so long ago, Polish film makers used to create the real movies, as "With Fire and Sword" or "Pan Tadeusz".

But since they discovered soup opera's formula, all they are producing are countless episodes of "telenovels". And, from time to time, a bland romantic comedy.
