Szymon Ruczyński

Director of animated films, born in 2000 in Białowieża. Since his first Lego block animation at the age of 8, he has won over 20 festival awards for his amateur productions. Currently, he is studying at the Film School in Łódź. In addition to traditional animation techniques, in his films he employs his own inventions, such as stamped animation or slimline dolls. He explores socially relevant issues and the observation of the conflict over the Białowieża Forest is an important inspiration for him. His filmography includes "Attic" (2013), "Scream" (2016), "Our Anthill" (2017), "Assassin’s Smile" (2019) and "Reason" (2020).
