Women in short films
This year, the selection of short films for teenagers was dominated by films about girls, created by both male and female directors. ‘Ritual and other shorts’ is our choice of 7 most interesting works in this group.
For years, I have been following and admiring French animation productions for children. This year brought no disappointment either: ‘Big Wolf & Little Wolf’ (dir. Remi Durin) or ‘Melting Heart Cake’ (dir. Benoît Chieux) from the selection ‘I’m not scared of the crocodile and other shorts’ will make you fall in love with French animation!
Films by Jadwiga Kędzierzawska
The three short, black and white films from the 60s are real gems of the world cinema for children. The ‘Impish Kitten’ will certainly delight the little viewers and adults alike.
This year, Poland has a really strong representation when it comes to shorts. The programme features animations for children (‘Hug Me’ and ‘Agatha’ series) and youth (‘The Hunt’ by Mateusz Jarmulski!), a feature for teenagers (‘Look at Me’ by Agata Minowska), as well as quality cinema for the younger audience (‘Vacant Rooms’ by Bartłomiej Jakubiak).
Look at Me and other shorts
An amazing selection of films for older teens and adults. Among my personal favourites: spectacular ‘Zombie’ by Boloji, subtle ‘Sledge’ by Mickaëla Dupre and mesmerising ‘Listen Papa!’ by twin animation duo Olga and Tatiana Poliektova.
