In the Focus: Animation competition, there are 7 films this year. The enormous freedom that animation gives the authors has been fully used to create expressive, artistic cinema. Each of the films was made in a different technique, has a different aesthetic and covers a different subject. Each of them is original and tells about significant things in an interesting way.


Impossible Figures and Other Stories I, dir. Marta Pajek (Poland) 2021, 16’, 16+

An elderly woman wanders tediously through empty streets. In short flashback, we get to see those, who will never return to the city. Film awarded at e.g. Animator IAFF and Animateka IAFF.


The Hangman at Home, dir. Michelle and Uri Kranot (Denmark) 2021, 14’, 16+

A Guitar in the Bucket, dir. Boyoung Kim (Republic of Korea) 2021, 15’, 15+

Your Own Bullshit, dir. Daria Kopiec (Poland) 2020, 6’, 16+
There’s nothing better than dinner with family, even though it reminds of a looped script that repeats itself endlessly. And though, except for food, you have to swallow the words of your loved ones. Sometimes bitter. Sometimes repeated constantly for so many long years that it causes nauseas. Film awarded at e.g. Krakow Film Festival and Etiuda&Anima IFF.


Loop, dir. Pablo Polledri (Spain) 2021, 8’, 13+
In this society each human being repeats the same action over and over again, in this society each human being repeats the same action over and over again, in this society… Film presented at e.g. Animator IAFF.
