The statuettes of the Annie Awards will be presented for the 47th time. The animated film by Tomek Popakul has a chance to win one of them. His film is nominated in the best short film category.

Annie Awards are the awards given to animated film productions. Among the nominees, there are both feature-length projects and short films, as well as television productions and advertisements. The organisers accept productions addressed to viewers of all ages, and they are also open to new forms, such as for example VR. The first award ceremony took place in 1972.

The film “Acid Rain,” produced by the studio Animoon, was named one of the five best short animated films of the past year.

The nominated animated film is set somewhere in Eastern Europe. Młoda runs away from home, as far away from the grey reality as possible. The initial excitement of the hitch-hiking journey subsides when she ends up on the outskirts of the city in the middle of the night. On the bridge, she notices a figure dangerously balancing on the railing.  This is how she meets Chudy, a little bit unbalanced freak. Chudy lives in a recreational vehicle which he drives in order to attend to his not necessarily legal errands. Młoda decides to join Chudy. Their road together takes them to increasingly strange regions, and an unnamed bond quickly forms between them.

The award-winners will be announced on the 25th of January.
