SHORT FILM FESTIVALS IN FEBRUARY
In February, winter continues not only outside, but also at the festivals. Although there are not many film reviews, there appeared a couple of places where you can watch Polish short films.
At the animated film festival VOID in Denmark, which began at the end of January, "Hippos" by Piotr Dumała will appear. In Spain, also in January, started the festival MiradasDoc, at which as many as six Polish short films will appear: "Football Brothers" by Marcin Filipowicz, "Three Conversations on Life" by Julia Staniszewska, "Second Life" by Eugeniusz Pankov, "Close Ties" by Zofia Kowalewska, "Springs have gone, winters are coming" by Karol Pałka and "A Documentary Film" by Marcin Podolec. The animated film will also be shown in Italy, at the festival Popoli a Palermo. "Close Ties" and "Three Conversations on Life," however, will appear at the festival ZagrebDOX in Croatia at the end of February.
At the beginning of the month, starts one of the most important short film festivals in Clermont-Ferrand, France, where the following animated films are qualified for the competition sections: "Pussy," directed by Renata Gąsiorowska, and "Beside Oneself" by Karolina Specht. These two animated films are invited also to the programme of the Belgian ANIMA Brussels Animation Film Festival.
