The first year of promotion of the puppet animation entitled “Woolworld” directed by our New Media Arts faculty lecturer Joanna Polak was very successful. In May 2019 the movie was awarded the second prize in the studio category at the 7th Polish Animation Festival O!PLA.
The prize is prestigious since at this festival it is granted solely on the basis of opinions given by viewers from over 100 locations in Poland which, according to the data given by the organisers, equals around 6 thousand people.
The presentation of the animation started in May 2018 and since then the movie created with wool has been awarded 9 prizes and accolades and has been screened at over 70 festivals and showings around the world. Currently, “Woolworld” is available on VOD platforms in Great Britain and in the African countries.
