TWO POLISH FILMS AWARDED AT THE MECAL PRO
In the middle of April, the Spanish Mecal Pro festival in Barcelona ended. Two Polish films were awarded during the event.
The Mecal Pro is the International Short and Animation Film Festival, held for over 20 years in Barcelona. The event enjoys great popularity not only in its home country but also around the world - every year, over 5 000 film submissions from all over the world are sent to the organisers. This year's edition took place from the 28th of March to the 14th of April.
During this year's edition, as many as eight Polish films were invited to the competition sections, and two documentary films were appreciated by the jury.
In Barcelona, "Sisters" by Michał Hytroś won the Grand Prix for the best documentary film, whereas "Their Voices" was honoured by the jury with the second prize in the documentary film category.
The full list of the award winners can be found on the festival's website.
