Marta Pajek's animation received the press award for best short film at ANIMA - the Brussels Animation Film Festival.
Women are at the forefront of Polish animation, with their films to be found at the Berlinale, Cannes, and Annecy film festivals. However, 2018 is by no means a revolution, but rather proof of a trend that has been ongoing for a number of years.
The prestigious Eurimages Co-production Development award went to the producers of the animated film "Of Unwanted Things and People." On the Polish side, WJTeam/Likaon is involved in the project.
Tricky Women/Tricky Realities Festival begins exactly in one week. Eight films from Polish female directors were included in the programme, while one of the directors even made a trailer promoting this year's edition of the festival.
