The POLISH ANIMATION FESTIVAL “O!PLA”, meaning:” Oh! Polish Animation “, has been running since 2013. Its objectives are to promote the work of Polish animators, both at home (O! PLA INNOVATION) and abroad (O!PLA ACROSS THE BORDERS), by means of special screenings for viewers of all ages, lectures, meetings with creators and animation workshops.
