It is the second time that IFF Etiuda&Anima, apart from traditional competitions of student etudes and independent animated films, also organizes a review of graduate films made at Polish art schools in 2012. Similar to last year, the presentation will not be a competition; however, we do not rule out that the programme of the festival will evolve in this direction, and that we will hold a competition of Polish graduate films in the near or distant future.

The Seven Deadly Sins is about life here and now, about whether we can be happy without lying to ourselves. Many people follow their rules every day, thinking that whatever they do, they do it right.

You want to finally prove yourself and create something special, something you can be proud of. First, build a concrete wall, separating you from the rest of the world. It will help you keep balance and calm when people closest to you, out of sheer concern, will harm you with their words. Words showing lack of understanding… Not for Children is about problems encountered also by makers of animated films during development of their projects.
