Film classification regulations in Australia require all films to either be formally classified OR restricted to an audience of 18 years of age and over. Like most festivals, we do not have the resources to classify films, and it is for this reason alone that we are not able to admit any person under the age of 18 years to the main MIAF screenings.

Gallery / Galeria | Robert Proch

Polish animation is simply extraordinary. It has always been so. Our Masters Of Polish Animation several MIAF’s ago was one of the most spellbinding programs we have ever screened. Poland’s history and culture ensures an extraordinary depth in virtually every artform her artists tackle, and animation, most assuredly, is no exception. Our recent journey to Poland found contemporary animation there is as strong as it’s ever been and these three programs demonstrate a community of animators that have mastered new technologies to astonishing effect standing shoulder to shoulder with those steeped in the traditions of exquisite puppet and hand-drawn animation.

Cos W Tym Gatunku
Urszula Palusinska

Poland, 6'38, 2010
One of the most visually commanding films in the entire festival. A bookshelf of birds, bats, sharks and unicorns.

Gallery / Galeria
Robert Proch

Poland, 4'44, 2010
The eye of an artist, the hand of a calligrapher and the imagination of an animator all combine in this wonderfully imagined study in perspective-bending, shape-changing, black and white, moving image.

Virus / Wirus
Robert Proch

Poland, 4’33, 2009
A funky, high-speed, uber-contemporary romp through the alleyways of the night.
Malgorzata Bosek

Poland, 10'01, 2007
An abstracted, full-technicolour, synchronised-ballet medley of a meal from purchase to wash up.
Coats / Plaszcz
Ewa Grzesiak

Poland, 5'35, 2009
The subtle, unbearable weight of the strolling, faceless masses.
Canal / Kanal
Paulina Bobrycz

Poland, 6'40, 2008
A soothing dive through the coral reef-like innards of a root canal gone psychedelic.
Uncle / Wujek
Maciej Sznabel

Poland, 8'00, 2008
Uncle goes a bit native after a sudden electrical jolt sees him heading off to the country for a bit of R&R.
Jaroslaw Konopka

Poland, 8'32, 2010
The cyclical nature of existence combines with the past and the future to pursue the destructive influence that ancestors have on man.
Danny Boy
Marek Skrobecki

Poland, 10'00, 2010
Making connections and avoiding dangers is doubly hard when you have no head. Triply hard when nobody else does either. You'd think having one would be the best thing in the world but you'd be wrong.
Paths Of Hate
Damian Nenow

Poland, 10'00, 2010
A simply astounding testament to the madness of war and the unhuman lengths to which some warriors go to fight on long after any meaning has taken flight.
