It was decided to change the festival's name, which is now a tribute to the outstanding Hungarian scenographer Alexandre Trauner, as well as to introduce new categories, opening the festival's doors to feature films and visual arts. In the festival’s programme, there will be a plethora of excellent films, meetings and workshops with eminent guests as well as film market for the representatives of the film industry.

In one of the non-competing sections, the viewers of the festival will also watch "Traces of ephemeral" by Agnieszka Waszczeniuk.

The Polish animated films will be evaluated by three-person Jury, consisting of: Geza M. Toth, Zsolt Richly and István Sinkó.
