The next Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, which is one of the most important festivals in the world, starts on 1st February, 2019. We have already found out that the festival participants will be able to see our animation student, Paulina Ziółkowska’s film "Bless you!" which was made under the artistic supervision of Piotr Dumała and Piotr Milczarek. As many as 9,300 film entries from all over the world were submitted out of which 78 films representing 61 countries were selected, including the film "Bless you!".
"A sunny day. People waiting at the bus stop. Suddenly, somebody sneezes. Then, somebody else. And one more person. Sneezing spreads like an epidemics. In the chaos it produces it turns out that the worst thing is when one catches one’s own bug." This, in short, is what the film which so far has won the Prize of the Berlinale Generation14plus and an Animafest Special Distinction in Zagreb, is about.
