Polish Films at LIAF 2011 (26th August – 4th September)


London International Animation Festival is coming back to town! The 8th edition of the event, that is said to be the biggest of its kind in the UK, is moving to a new venue this year (which is our beloved Barbican). The festival programme sounds exciting for quite a number of reasons but let me mention here only one: Polish animation! Yeay!… 🙂

Yep, as announced on LIAF website, we’ll be able to see what’s best in the latest Polish animation and by the latest I’d say I mean the first decade of 21st century. Some of the films have been mentioned on Frogs and Squash, so there is a chance you already got the feeling. Among others, there are such jewels as Dokumanimo by Malgorzata Bosek (2007), Gallery by Robert Proch (2009), Paths of Hate by Damian Nenow (2010), Danny Boy by Marek Skrobecki (2010), Millhaven by Bartek Kulas (2010) or The Lost Town of Switez by Kamil Polak (2010).  For full details of the two sets of films, go to: Focus on Poland 1 and Focus on Poland 2.

Another exciting thing in the programme is 2 master classes that are supposed to be led by (one of my faves, I must admit) Wojtek Wawszczyk. For details, again, follow the link: Wojtek Wawszczyk Master Class 1 & 2. These will be followed by George the Hedgehog screening (Wojtek’s latest feature) and Q&A with the director.

Also, there is a few Polish productions in the competition!

For info I refer you to the LIAF website. All bookings to be made through Barbican website.
