The Rain’ is a simple animated film on collective consciousness. It talks about how no accountability for our actions pushes us to thoughtlessly follow the crowd, which may lead to a tragedy. The film also depicts a struggle of an individual with collective hypnosis and its consequences for both the individual and the crowd.

Production: Fumi Studio (Piotr Furmankiewicz and Mateusz Michalak).

Premiere at the 69th Berlinale.

Production: Munk Studio.

"You are overreacting", dir. Karina Paciorkowska

Honorable mention at the 61st DOK Leipzig festival.

Production: Lodz Film School. The KFF Sales & Promotion agency, operating at the Krakow Film Foundation, supports the international promotion and distribution of the film.

"Ovule", dir. Natalia Durszewicz

A film focuses on story of a woman whose fears and obssesions are taking over her everyday routine, transforming her life into all-embracing jungle. It symbolises the struggle with personality disorders while being in a relationship with beloved one.  It is an visual analysis on separation anxiety disorder that occurs mostly in childchood but can be present at all stages of life. This exessive fear of losing mother or father creates many dark scenarios in the mind of  a child. In many cases this trauma continues to grow even in late adulthood and focuses on partner instead of a parent.  When woman is left alone at home, and absence of her man became longer than usual her paranoia grows. Nothing is as it seems for her. She becomes suspicious,insanely jealous and fearful. She scares of loneliness. That leads to creation of a new reality, much more vibrant and colorful than her everyday life, where all the madness becomes substantial, tangible,  all the precognitions turned out to be true. It shows how subconciousness can be dangerous and unpredictable. Fiercesness in the deep, mysterious jungle.

"The Little Soul", dir. Barbara Rupik

A dead body became stuck by a river bank. Its decaying insides still hide a human soul - a miniature of the deceased. Rotting organs part and a tiny creature gets out. Standing on the river bank, it says goodbye to the corpse and sets off on a journey through the post-mortem land.

Third prize in the Cinéfondation competition at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival.

"Year" ("Rok") in the Big Sleep section

The Big Sleep is a screening dedicated to the personalities in animated film who recently passed away. A tribute filled with retrospectives, to ensure the talent of these artists lives on at the Annecy Festival.

The "Year" is a tribute to Marek Serafinski, an animation filmmaker and producer. A graphic diary generated from everyday life paper waste: labels, tickets etc. and cigarette packets from a chain smoker, showing the degree of addiction, and passage of time.

Directed by Małgorzata Bosek-Serafińska.

Production: Serafiński Studio.
