About notations
The main theme of the notation cycle is the preservation of knowledge about the Animated Film Studio in Krakow and the artistic milieu that has been associated with it ever since. The studio was established in Krakow in 1966 as a branch of the Warsaw-based Studio Miniatur Filmowych. Its initiator and founder was Kazimierz Urbański - a lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, who led the Film Drawing Workshop there. In 1974, the studio acquired its legal status as well as a new name - Animated Film Studio, under which it became famous all over the world. The main focus of the studio was the production of animated, original short films, addressed to adult viewers. However, animations for children and other short films were also produced there. The leading authors of the SFA include: Jerzy Kucia, Julian Antonisz, Ryszard Antoniszczak, Ryszard Czekała, Krzysztof Kiwerski, Krzysztof Raynoch, Aleksander Sroczyński, Andrzej Warchał, Zbigniew Szymański and Longin Szmyd. The 1990s marked the beginning of a critical period for the SFA which eventually resulted in its closure in 2003. The notations will serve cognitive and documentary functions, and they will also help to disseminate cultural assets in the Lesser Poland region.

Sabina Antoniszczak on Ryszard Antoniszczak and Animated Film…


Place: Online (Facebook / Youtube / Etiuda&Anima Website)
Date: 17th November, 12 PM

The notation is devoted to Ryszard Antoniszczak, who was born in 1947 in Nowy Sącz, as a younger brother of Julian Józef Antonisz, a visual artist, animator, and author of books. Unfortunately, he died soon before the recording of the material started, which is why it is Sabina Antoniszczak, the daughter of Julian Antonisz, who tells about him.

He graduated from the Faculty of Painting and Graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, and he also studied in the Film Drawing Workshop there. Starting from 1974, he collaborated with the Animated Film Studio. He became well-known for his debut film "Farewell to Steam" (1974), referring to the famous "Yellow Submarine". Since 1981 he has been living in Sweden and Spain and running the Antonius Animation company. His films and books are addressed primarily to children. The notation whose protagonist is Ryszard Antoniszczak aims to preserve the memories of the artist and his relationship with the Animated Film Studio in Krakow in an audiovisual form.

What can festivals do to protect the environment?

  • organizing of accompanying events with eco-friendly profile - workshops, speeches, discussions, screenings, meetings with experts, lectures, etc. - the culture has great power, education through the participation of recipients has the greatest potential for festivals to introduce changes
  • spreading flower bombs (they contain seeds, for example, of wild herbs, and they can be scattered in random places where plants have a chance to grow and thus propagate biodiversity and valiant pollinators)
  • making bags/backpacks from recycled materials, e.g. banners
  • implementing festival bug or insect houses
  • introducing fruit/vegetable packs prepared in cooperation with local producers, e.g. eco-friendly “parsley” fairs, initiatives aimed at reducing food waste (e.g. Too Good To Go - they are already huge and probably expensive, but there are smaller initiatives, too, that work on a similar principle) → e.g. preparing several sets of food to be handed over, allocating them by a "less-waste partner" and handing them over to the festival so that festival guests or the audience could choose from them and decide to buy, for example, a package of "bad-looking" parsley, which will not sell in a supermarket
  • limiting or resigning from some prints - programs, catalogs, posters, leaflets
  • using lanyards and badges (generally any available resources, as much as possible) from previous editions e.g. having a set of "neutral lanyards" to be used in the future regardless of the edition’s visual identification, or using recycled lanyards - those that have been left over from the previous edition (this will make the event more colorful and environmentally friendly)
  • using vegetarian/vegan catering only
  • providing access to drinking water and encouraging audience members to bring their own reusable water bottles
  • offsetting events - calculating the carbon footprint of the event and determining actions that would neutralize it - e.g. by planting trees (you can also introduce voluntary donations for this purpose, e.g. if someone arrives at the festival by plane from outside Poland, s/he is proposed to donate xPLN, if s/he comes from Poland it is xPLN, etc. – in this case, the carbon footprint of the trip can also be calculated)
  • encouraging participants to use public transport
  • using the services of local suppliers
  • economic and ecological planning of transportation and other logistics of all festival activities
  • creating shared refrigerators, or freedges - if people participating in the event have some provisions that they will not consume, they can leave it in the refrigerator and someone else can take it – as an alternative to throwing it away
  • preparing an appropriate number of litter bins/garbage discharge points
  • managing sewage/water consumption responsibly
