The programming of the 30th anniversary festival is therefore more nostalgic and will be full of anniversary accents. The main point of the festival program will, of course, still be the two international etudes and animation competitions.
Etiuda&Anima focuses on summaries and tracing the career paths of the winners. As part of the program, the profiles of selected artists will be recalled and their achievements to date will also be presented. This year's edition will feature Aga Woszczyńska, Mateusz Głowacki, Sophie Linnenbaum, Elmar Imanov and Paulina Ziółkowska.
This year's winner of the Special Golden Dinosaur for an active teacher and creator was Piotr Dumała. The award ceremony will be accompanied by a screening of films by his students and Dumała's latest film "Fin del mundo?", which premiered at the festival in Gdynia.
As every year, there will be a series of "Self-portraits of animation creators" (Marc Roels and Priit Tender), and screenings of the most interesting feature-length animations of the last year are also planned, including "No Dogs and Italians Allowed" (dir. Alain Ughetto) and "The Peasants" (dir. . DK Welchman, Hugh Welchman).
For the youngest viewers, the festival offers not only film attractions, but also practical classes - animation workshops and film and music workshops. As part of the 30th E&A, there will be a seminar on gender equality in Poland and Europe, emphasizing the presence of women in the industry. For the first time in the history of the festival, the top 10 were selected by the event organizers.
