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.

The Lost Town Of Switez | Kamil Polak

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.

The Chick
Michal Socha

Poland, 5'08, 2008
Colour to die for; elegance flowing thick and fast from every frame; grace abounding. A very big, sumptuously stylish night in.

The Wine
Wino

Krzysztof Szafraniec
Poland, 9'18, 2010
A text-book search for the essence of human animation – one drop at a time.

The Well
Studnia

Andrzej Gosieniecki
Poland, 9'10, 2008
The source of life; a reservoir of inspiration; a stream of silver.
Gibbon's Island
Wyspa Gibonow

Malgorzata Bosek
Poland, 8'00, 2010
A carnival of colour and a menagerie of animals acting … oddly!
Superstring / Superstruna
Andrzej Jobczyk

Poland, 5'00, 2009
A film inspired by string theory and stretched to beyond the limit of its logical conclusion.
Television / Telewizor
Tomasz Siwinski

Poland, 8'23, 2005
A ‘paint-under-camera’ masterpiece. An achingly beautiful portrayal of the grey, urban landscape.
Ark / Arka
Grzegorz Jonkajtus

Poland, 8'15, 2007
The ultimate vessel of last resort. A ship to a promised land or a downward slide to an ever-narrowing infinity?
The Lost Town Of Switez
Kamil Polak

Poland, 20'41, 2010
An utterly epic, apocalyptic adaptation of an Adam Mickiewicz poem about a flood that mysteriously submerges the town of Switez.
