The pandemic reality in which we still live has accustomed us to cultural events implemented in hybrid versions or completely transferred to the Internet. Also the 28th Etiuda & Anima will be held mostly on-line. The organizers of this year's edition do not give up the traditional form of the event. They want to meet the festival's participants on November 16 during the ceremonial inauguration at the Kijów Centrum cinema in Krakow at the screening of the animated film My Sunny Maad (2021, dir. Michaela Pavlátová). The film premiered at this year's Annecy festival and tells the story of a Czech woman named Herra who, after marrying an Afghan Nazir, moves to his homeland, trying to assimilate into post-Taliban Afghanistan. The opening gala of the festival and the film My Sunny Maad will also be available online.

The focal point of Etiuda & Anima are invariably the two title international competitions: Etiuda, for the best student short film, in which participants compete for the prestigious Golden, Silver and Bronze Dinosaur statuettes, and Anima, the competition of animation creators for Golden, Silver and Bronze Jabberwocks. This year's competition includes films by students and professional filmmakers made in the years 2019-2021. The films competing for the awards will be available online on the streaming platform both for viewers from all over Poland and for jurors, who will also give their awards in this mode. Competition screenings will also be accompanied by online Q&A meetings with filmmakers, jurors and guests who will participate in the festival from a distance.

This year's competition-related events include, among others presentations of other festivals and selected European schools. This year we will look at Dutch and Spanish animation, and the programs will be prepared by partner festivals: the Kaboom Animation Festival taking place in the Netherlands and the Spanish Animac Film Festival. 28. Etiuda & Anima will also present the 10 best Hungarian short films from the last 20 years, selected by Geza M. Toth, a recognized Hungarian animator.

As part of the 28th Etiuda & Anima International Film Festival, it will also be possible to recall experimental animated films by artists from the Antoniszczak family - Ryszard and Julian (known under the abbreviated name Antonisz) - and the Chrzanowski family; Andrei and Ilya, whose famous feature film DAU. Natasha (2020) was included in the program of the Etiuda & Anima 2021 festival.

In addition to short competition animations, the participants of the 28th Etiuda & Anima will have a unique opportunity to watch full-length animated films of the last season, which were shown at the most important foreign film festivals. The organizers of the festival also remember about the youngest viewers, which is why they invite all children to educational animations entitled Even mice go to heaven (2021, dir. Jan Bubeníček, Denisa Grimmová), and the Calamity, a Childhood of Martha Jane Cannary (2020, dir. Rémi Chayé). We invite you to the screenings of both films on Tuesday, November 16 at the Kijów Centrum cinema in Krakow.

This year's program also includes animation workshops for adults and children, which will be held stationary. Ecological workshops for the youngest will be conducted by Daria Godyń. The issues of eco will also be the main idea of ​​the masterclass panel entitled How to organize an ecological festival? During this year's edition of the festival, the results of the art competition of students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, entitled "Photographic memory". The screening of films will be accompanied by a lecture.

Etiuda & Anima 2021 will remind the figures of outstanding filmmakers who died last year.

On this occasion, Krakow's Kijów Centrum cinema will screen one of the films most appreciated by Professor Helman - Death in Venice (1971), directed by Luchin Visconti.

TO DOWNLOAD

Photos covered by copyright, made available only for the implementation of the workshop "Put a pandemic into the film" as part of the Etiuda & Anima festival.

During online classes the participants will learn the arcana of cartoon animation (2D), and with the use of a special application they will create a short film in this technique. In safe homes, every child will familiarize themselves in an easy and practical way with the basics of cartoon animation and will create their own short animation.

The young participants will have a chance to tell about their experiences connected with the pandemic. We wish to give them an art therapeutic tool to find out how children react to the virus, how they feel when kept indoors, what they think about home schooling, about their fears triggered by the hazards threatening their parents and grandparents, and about other things affecting them and their families in this time.

The classes will start with a short conversation and introduction into cartoon animation and computer techniques. Depending on the participants` level and skills, they will make simple animations, for example of a falling leaf, a rain drop, a flying bird or a cloud, or more sophisticated ones with a few elements and form transformations (for example changing a leaf into a more magical character).

The workshops will be run by Justyna Jakóbowska.
