The organisers of Anifilm set themselves the goal of presenting current trends, modern technologies, and animation techniques. The event isn’t only a festival space for cinema buffs eager to watch multiple excellent films, but also a perfect place for meetings and confrontations for industry representatives. The festival supports animators, producers, and distributors currently working on new projects.
In addition to the awarded animated films, the program also included other Polish productions. Yelyzaveta Pysmak’s “My Fat Arse and I”, Daria Kopiec’s “Your Own Bullshit”, and Justyna Pazdan’s “Anemone Temple” also completed for awards. The non-competitive segment featured Edyta Adamczak’s “Eatself”.
Recognised as the best student animation of the festival “I’m Here” tells the story of an elderly man who is looking after his paralysed wife. Despite his old age and own health issues, he tries his best to alleviate her suffering, which is getting more severe every day. He is aided by his daughter, who tries to reconcile the care given to her mother with her own work at the hospital and her personal life. Each of them has different views on how the woman should be looked after, which leads to many arguments.
