No-Go Zone, Atelier Collectif, 10’, Belgium, 2016
No-Go Zone is a strong commentary on the condition of the modern world in which economic profit is more important than the common good.
The film proves that animation can become a critical instrument for evaluating political mechanisms we are all subjected to and also an effective medium of reflecting on the dangers that civilisation progress brings.
Kinki, Izumi Yoshida, 10’, Poland, 2015
The filmmaker rendered the formal side of the film with immaculate perfection, at the same time conveying the ambiguity of human emotions.
„Kinki” shows that abstract animation can engage the viewer as intensely as narrative films.
Beyond, Milán Kopacz, 10’, Hungary, 2015
Balcony, David Dell'Edera, 6’18”, Hungary, 2015
3rd Award goes to two Hungarian films which constitute a sensitive confrontation with our „now and here”, trying to redefine and grasp our existence in the social and physical space.
"Balcony" is an interesting commentary on social reality in which cry is a new form of communication with a unifying and not destructive force.
„Beyond" attempts at exploring what happens beyond reality, which we find difficult to define ourselves in relation to and which can only be experienced. The film presents thoughtfully the multi-dimensional nature of the way people experience the world.

Within the scheme of the festival we organize International Animated Film Competition for Young Artists (age limit for entrants is 30 years) which aims at presenting and promoting animated films for adults.

We are very pleased to introduce you the new website of 11th edition of the Puppet is a Human too Festival.
We made every effort to provide you the possibility of comfortable and intuitive navigating through our website this year, also on your mobile devices.
We work hard to present you the programme as soon as possible.
This year's edition of the Festival takes place between 7th-9th of October (screening of the animated films) and 10th-16th of October (theatrical performances).
Constantly for many years we have been explaining that the art of animation, including the puppet theatre, is one of the languages of art.
Of course, it can constitute all of this. Our desire is to persuade you, that there exist different languages of art, different levels of creativity, which are worth getting to know. To be amused by or to be touched by them, and if willing to reject, do it consciously.
We invite you to see puppet spectacles meant for adult audiences: starting with traditional theatre, ending with innovative forms. The Puppet is a Human too Festival is a contest, in which an international jury awards: the Best Actor, Creativity, the Festival’s Best Spectacle and a number of other awards.
