Andrzej Maleszka’s Magiczne drzewo (The Magic Tree) received the Grand Prix and Audience Award at the Taiwan International Children’s Film Festival, held in Taipei from April 1 to 11.

The event will also be home to a children’s book market, as well as various workshops, exhibitions, and multimedia installation art projects.
The Taiwan International Children’s Film Festival is organized by PTS, Taiwan’s only public public television station.
