White Plastic Sky nominated for the European Film Awards 2023

The European Film Academy (EFA) has nominated the Hungarian-Slovak film White Plastic Sky for the prestigious selection of the five best European animated feature films premiered between June 2022 and the end of May 2023.

Earlier this year, White Plastic Sky had its world premiere in the Encounters competition at the Berlinale and has since been screened at several prestigious festivals, including the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Most recently, the film won the Silver Méliès Award for Best Film at the European Fantastic Film Festival in Strasbourg.

White Plastic Sky is set in the future where, after the complete destruction of the Earth's flora and fauna, scientists experiment with an incredibly nutritious plant implanted into the human body. In this cruel world where survival comes at a high price, a man breaks all the rules to save his wife's life. “The film was made by combining technologies. The characters are in 2D whereas the sets and all objects were made in 3D. The cameras will also move in 3D. This made it possible to split the work among two teams. Everything 2D-related was done in Hungary and 3D was done in Slovakia. A whole team of young Slovak animators was trained on this film made in Ekran studio under the supervision of Peter Košťál,” said the Slovak producer Juraj Krasnohorský (Artichoke). White Plastic Sky is the feature debut of the director duo Tibor Bánóczki and Sarolta Szabó, known for their internationally successful short films Les Conquérants (2011) and Leftover (2014).

The 36th awards ceremony takes place on 9 December in Berlin.
