A Bird, 2013
Dir Paulina Wyrt
work outside of competition
A Bird is a short, semi-surrealistic impression based on a fragment of Janusz Głowacki's book "Good Night, Dżerzi". The film's focus is on the relationship between the main character, Kosinski (whose identity is only barely suggested) and a Polish cleaner. The irregular weave of intersecting events that diverge in one place and in another, outlines the character of the hero, melting away and unspecified in unambiguous assessments.   Paulina Wyrt - student of animation at the University of Arts in Poznań. A long-time collaborator of the Children's Art Center, organizer and leader of animated film workshops. She is an illustration and director of an animated film. Winner of many competitions, e.g. in 2012 she won first place at the TheOneMinutes one-minute films competition in the Form category and presented the "untitled" movie at the Careof Gallery during the identi_TY Animated Film Festival.

Centre for Contemporary Art Łaźnia organizes the Festival IN OUT for the 8th time. The project evolves every year searching for new suggestions and solutions. The 7thedition of the festival was enriched with presentations that attempted to combine works of artists with different attitude towards film media and education. With the 8thedition we would like to continue this process in order to create permanent platform of communication between the artist who graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and those who studied at Film Schools. The contest, Festival and exhibition are to trigger the dialogue among the artists as well as between schools and academies.
This year we invite artists to take part in the contest for the best:
Animations/Documentaries/Short films/ Experiments/Short video forms with the theme named BIO_GRAPHI(C/E)S
We are interested not only in the biographies or parallel biographies of well-known people, but also in the stories of people important of a particular artists or artist’s autobiographies. During the festival we would also like to analyze the biographies of animals, plants, items, cities, places. The title is divided into two stems: greek bíos – life and gráphō – to write; this way we wanted to underline our another area of interest – the process of writing/directed biographies - how do visual and film artist begin their work, how does the whole process look like, how do they decide on the choice of moments essential for the narrative and how do they create memories, stories and what do they reject, what can be forgotten, left out.
The contest has two stages, during the first one, until 10th of April 2014 the jury will choose 25 artists whose works would qualify to the second stage and those will be presented during the reviews and exhibitions is CCA Łaźnia. Artists will be invited to the contest in Gdańsk. The prizes will be funded by the Marshal of Pomorskie Voivodship Mieczysław Struk and by the National Audiovisual Institute.
