Saturday is ahead of us, which marks the fifth day of the festival. We kick it off in the Big Hall of MOS at 11:00 a.m with a screening of the Dutch animation Oink from 2022. Additionally, there will be a summary of the Animated Crèches of Cracow and Traces of Polish Kings at Wawel Hill projects.
At 12:00 p.m., for the first time in festival history, MOS's Small Hall hosts the Talent Market, organized in collaboration with the Polish Animation Producers Association. This event isn't just for students and graduates of art and film schools; it's an opportunity to delve into the Polish animation market and meet industry professionals.
Simultaneously, at Paradox Cinema at Krupnicza 38 street, there will be a screening of a preschool children's series titled Patchwork Kingdom at 12 p.m. Princess Bianka and Hamster Albert live in Patchwork Kingdom, where everything is made from fabric scraps. Each episode is a standalone story about their daily lives with their closest friends: King Dad, Queen Mom, Sparrow Stefan, Lumberjack Hamster, Sun, Moon, and other inhabitants of the fabric realm.
Moving back to MOS at Rajska 12 street at 1:00 p.m., Big Hall will feature a showing of the film No Dogs or Italians Allowed from 2022. Set in northern Italy at the beginning of the 20th century, it focuses on the Ughetto family.
At the same time, 1 p.m., at Cracow Academy of Fine Arts (ASP), there will be animation workshops inspired by Patchwork Kingdom, the children's series mentioned earlier. In a family-friendly atmosphere using materials and scraps, we'll create magical worlds akin to the animated series.
At 2:00 PM in MOS's Small Hall, the Polish-British film Silent Twins directed by Agnieszka Smoczyńska will be screened. The film centers on June and Jennifer Gibbons, two dark-skinned twins from Wales.
