Katowice vs. Budapest: animation set

In cooperation with the Katowice Academy of Fine Arts and the Hungarian Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, the Ars Independent festival will be the first to organize a film screening at the former university’s new premises. The goal of the meeting, during which animations from students of both schools will be screened, is to promote the genre and integrate artistic communities. The Hungarian part of the viewing was carefully chosen by the head of jury of this year’s Black Horse of Animation competition – Anna Ida Orosz.
