The Second Day of the International Film Festival Etiuda&Anima 2023

Added: November 22, 2023

Today begins the second day of the festival in Małopolski Ogród Sztuki (MOS) at Rajska 12 street and all the events planned for today are taking place there. There is a day full of unforgettable attractions ahead of us! And what exactly is waiting for us?

At 3 p.m., the first screening of Etiuda’s competition will happen in MOS’s Small Hall. During this event, our guests will see five film productions, such as Polish COUNT MY LOV3, directed by Ewa Japola, or German On the Brink, directed by Stephanie Olthoff.

Simultaneously to the event mentioned above, another one is going to take place also at 3 p.m. in MOS’s Big Hall. This particular event will focus on playing chosen films, both études and animations, that had been awarded throughout the years of the festival. You will get the chance to watch Bulgarian film The Go-Between (directed by Dragomir Sholev), the winner of The Golden Dinosaur trophy in 2009, and British-Canadian animation Affairs of the Art (directed by Joanna Quinn), the winner of The Golden Jabberwocky trophy in 2021.

We have also created an attraction for you, that is not strictly connected to films – and it is a unique exhibition called WymiAR (the combination of the Polish word dimension and English phrase virtual reality, which is a pun in Polish language) organised by Academic Circle „Square”, KEN University’s Institute of Art and Design in Cracow and The International Film Festival Etiuda&Anima. This exhibition is an incredible journey through mysteries of extensive outer space and virtual space! The vernissage is taking place on the 22nd of November at 7 p.m., and the exhibition will be opened from the 22nd to the 25th of November, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. During this exhibition, the guests can admire brilliant works of authors, such as Samuel Kawczak, Anna Riabchenko and Anastazja Tsybulska.

This year, we decided to introduce something brand new in our festival – to be exact, we created a special VR Corner (located in MOS’S Main Hall), which allows us to experience animation in completely new way! For our VR Corner, we chose three fantastic animations that were awarded during the most important animation festivals around the world, like From The Main Square, directed by Pedro Harres. The admission is free and you can visit VR Corner from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.!

At 5 p.m., we invite you again to MOS’s Big Hall, where the first screening of Anima competition will take place. During this part of the evening, we are going to play seven animations, including titles like In The Upper Room from Hungary, directed by Alexander Gratzer, Bird in the Peninsula from France and Japan, directed by Atsushi Wada, and Crab Day from Great Britain, directed by Ross Stringer.

At 5:30 p.m., in MOS’s Small Hall, there will be the second screening of Etiuda competition of the evening, where the guests will continue watching this year nominated works. There are five titles waiting for you in the programme – for example Polish étude Alcibiades in direction of Robert Kwilman.

The last event planned for Wednesday is the festival’s official inauguration, whose beginning is planned for 8 p.m. in MOS’s Big Hall. For this event, we prepared the screening of the three great film positions – Belgian Harpya, directed by Raoul Servais from 1979 (awarded with the Palme d'Or), British The Albatross, directed by Paul Bush from 1998, and French Chicken for Linda!, directed by Chiara Malta and Sébastien Laudenbach from 2023.
