We are aware of our responsibility for the natural environment, especially now, when we are facing the climate disaster. As organizers of cultural events, we want to take actions against climate change, notably in that area, which is dearest to us - the culture.
We want to create our festival as eco-friendly as possible and encourage the audience to take a reflection about human place in the ecosystem through the festival's events and programm. However, it is impossible to create a festival without a community, which forms itself around the event - the audience, artists, volunteers and jury.
We are reaching out to you with a special survey. Its aim is to research the attitude of participants towards ecological actions during the Etiuda&Anima Festival, and also, familiarizing with your expectations and daily attitude toward ecology. Every voice matters!

The Jury of 28th IFF Etiuda&Anima: Géza M. Tóth (Chairman), Grzegorz Koncewicz, Chintis Lundgren, Julia Orlik on November 15th 2021, after seeing 54 competition films the Jury decided to award the prizes to the following films:
The Grand Prix of the Festival – the Golden Jabberwocky and 7000 PLN AFFAIRS OF THE ART
dir. Joanna Quinn, Canada 2021
for „Joanna Quinn in her film Affairs of the Art in a daring way told the story of the Beryl family. We follow the story of the main character’s life and her relatives with a beauty that only animations can bring: perfect drawing, perfect movie language, brilliant script, well constructed characters. It is a story about how people’s aspirations complement reality. Life does not always give us the possibility to fulfill them, and even can make aspirations an obsession. It turns out that if somebody has an artistic soul and a passion that never goes out, he will madly enjoy all the colors of life.”
The Silver Jabberwocky ORGIASTIC HYPER-PLASTIC
dir. Paul Bush, Denmark, UK 2020
for „A formal language that is both playfully abstract and provocatively intelligible, in the best visual music tradition”
The Bronze Jabberwocky THE STORK
dir. Lucija Mrzljak, Morten Tšinakov, Estonia 2020
„Through a playful portrayal of freedom, this film reminds us about the absurdity of life and the silliness of unconstrained desire. We enjoyed following the grotesque behaviour of the protagonist, who demonstrates an opposition to mediocre life patterns of a couple whose life he intervenes into. It makes us question our own established patterns and values, and invites the viewer to follow the protagonist beyond social and physical norms.”
The Special Golden Jabberwocky and 3000 PLN for the best student etude go to BUSLINE35A
dir. Elena Felici, Denmark 2021
„The film in an interesting way leads the narration, showing how easy it is for us to turn our eyes away and look for excuses in a moment which requires reaction. A clear manifestation of human inactivity in a situation which may later have influence on the whole life.”
dir. Yuanqing Cai, Nathan Crabot, Houzhi Huang, Mikolaj Janiw, Mandimby Lebon, Théo Tran Ngoc, France 2020
for „Realistically showing life in a claustrophobic environment and turning attention to a problem which is often faced by densely populated Asians cities. A visual presentation of people stripped of their private space, who, for lack of other possibilities, are forced to find themselves in the difficult conditions in which they live.”
dir. Marie Larrivé, France 2021
for „Taking us on a poetic journey that explores the relationships between generations of family members, some of which are long gone. This film enchanted us with its vibrant visuals and with subtle symbolical connections between a historical place, family affairs and nature.”
dir. Marion Auvin, France 2020
"Jean from its first shot introduces us to the story which we follow with interest and alternately with emotions of anger and sympathy until the very finale. Not only the ending is surprising, but also the fact how much drama, emotions and life can be shown via simple lines and colorful blurs. So many things can only be successfully realized at once in the art of animation.”
PRINCE IN A PASTRY SHOP
dir. Katarzyna Agopsowicz, Poland 2020
„A lyrical story in an extremely well dramatised, lyrical animation, with a graphic world of independent illustrative value at every moment.”
Special Jury Mention in the ANIMA 28th International competition The Etiuda&Anima 2021 Film Festival was awarded to Katarzyna Agopsowicz for the film "Prince in a Cake Shop". Simultaneously, the author for the same film received a cash prize in the amount of PLN 5,000, funded by Polish Filmmakers Association, for the best Polish film animated film presented at the festival.

This year's Etiuda & Anima will propose a hybrid version of the event, and on-line film screenings will enable people from all over Poland to participate in the event.
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.

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

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.

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 screening of films will be accompanied by a lecture.

In the nostalgic series of "Farewells" there will be screenings of documents dedicated to film achievements, among others a respected director from South Korea, Kim Ki-Duk, representative of the Czech film school Jiři Menzel or Ivan Passer, representative of the Czechoslovak New Wave of the 1960s.
The organizers of the 28th Etiuda & Anima Festival would also like to honor the memory of Alicja Helman, the doyen of Polish film studies, who died in February this 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. The screening of the legendary adaptation of the novel by Thomas Mann will be accompanied by a screening of the documentary The most beautiful boy in the world (2021, dir. Kristina Lindström, Kristian Petri). The documentary tells the story of Björn Andresen, who as a 15-year-old boy starred in the film by the Italian master.

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.
Project partner: the PZU Foundation
The co-organizers of the workshops are: - MOMAKIN (description below) - Stowarzyszenie Producentów Polskiej Animacji
