It looks like the real festival season will begin in May. Polish animated films are going to be screened around the globe. Some will still be shown online, obviously, but more and more events will take place in a hybrid format, i.e. including screenings in cinemas. Check out all the places featuring our animated films this month.
Seven Polish animated projects will be presented during the Animated in Poland pitching session as part of KFF Industry, the industry segment accompanying the 61st Krakow Film Festival.
The Swiss festival Visions du Reél seems to be exceptionally lucky for Tomasz Wolski. Having its premiere screening held there, the documentary has just been awarded ex aequo with the Special Jury Award.
We have learned the list of films nominated for this year's Polish Film Academy Awards. Mariusz Wilczyński's animated film is competing for best film while the title of best documentary will go to one of five films. The winners will be announced on 20 May.
