“OPENING NIGHT” WINS GRAND PRIX, “DISC+DOG” GETS AWARD AT PRIMANIMA
Polish animated films stole the hearts of jurors at the Hungarian festival. Sara Szymańska's film won the festival, and Tomek Ducki's production conquered the Masters segment.
Primanima is an international festival that targets debuting animation creators. The event was created in 2012 as a platform for young animators to present their first films. The festival features five competitions: for student films, graduation films, film debuts, films for children, and the Primanima Masters competition program.
The film by Tomek Ducki won in the last category. In Disc+Dog we witness a frisbee game with three dogs that gets out of control. What happens if one of the dogs is excluded from the game?
In turn, Sara Szymańska's Opening Night tells the story of a young couple who meet for the first time since their breakup. An afterparty at the theatre becomes the background for reliving their relationship. The further they delve into their past, the more difficult it is for them to return to reality.
