kinoMANUAL was established by two visual artists Aga Jarząb and Maciek Bączyk.

It is a small, independent audio-visual production house from Wrocław (Poland) focused on experimenting with the moving image and sound. kinoMANUAL mainly explores analogue animation techniques such as hand-drawn, cut-out or direct cinema. By enjoying tactile contact with the film and production process itself, they create films and objects that correspond with a rich tradition of moving images, kinetic art and experimental cinema. 

kinoMANUAL cooperates with international art institutions, artists and researchers worldwide as a motion designer and art fair organiser. Since 2015, they have been collaborating in a continuous manner with Punto y Raya Festival from Spain, Filmverkstaden from Finland (as the active member of Filmverkstaden association) and O!Pla Polish Film Festival from Poland.

kinoMANUAL runs animation workshops for adults and children during animation and film festivals, art fairs and culture showcases.
