”The Red Turtle” is coming to Polish cinemas

Starting from June 23rd, Polish audience will have an opportunity to see an amazing animated feature ”The Red Turtle” in cinemas all over the country. We had a pleasure to present a pre-release screening of this long-awaited film by an acclaimed Michael Dudok de Wit during the 24th edition of the IFF Etiuda&Anima 2016.

”The Red Turtle”, produced by Studio Ghibli and Wild Bunch, is a result of a long-standing work of the outstanding artist who was nominated for an Oscar three times and awarded with this awarded for his poignant animated film titled ”Father and Daughter”. A highly distinctive and poetic language of Dudok de Wit, who portrays emotions and human relations in a masterly manner, is a trademark of all his works.

”The Red Turtle” was an initiative of Studio Ghibli which proposed that the Dutch animated film maker developed an animated feature based completely on his own vision. The animation lovers from all over the world waited for the results of this artistic collaboration for a couple of years.

The world premiere of ”The Red Turtle” was on May 18th, 2016 at the Cannes Festival.  The following premiere screenings took place, among others, in Holland, Australia, Canada, Japan, USA, Greece, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Spain, Slovenia, Russia, Brazil and Turkey.
