20 years of the International Film Festival Etiuda&Anima
The main competition of the festival, organized since the first edition of the Etiuda International Film Festival comprises exclusively short films made within the didactic processes in film and artistic schools. Between 1994 – 2004, all kinds of short films were present: features, documentaries, animations and experimental short films. In the first period, that is between 1994 – 2002, short film competitions were organized every two years, in odd years. Since 2003, the short film competition has been organized annually, and starting from 2005, since a separate animation competition was introduced, the competition comprises short feature, documentary and experimental films. Animated short films take part in the second competition of the festival, together with other animations. We present all winners of the Golden Dinosaur Grand Prix of the ETIUDA competition in three screenings. The third screening is devoted solely to films made in the Łódź Film School, the most often Grand Prix awarded film school of the festival, and this year considered the best film school of the 20 years of the festival Etiuda&Anima.
