The World Festival of Animated Film 2019 – Animafest Zagreb has been recently opened for entries and like very year invites submissions from all over the world. This annual Animation Festival will take a place from 3-8 June 2019 in Zagreb, Croatia.
The World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest Zagreb, established in 1972, is the second oldest film festival in the world completely dedicated to animation. Launched thanks to the global reputation of the filmmakers sprung from the Zagreb School of Animation, founded based on the decision of ASIFA, International Animated Film Association, Zagreb Film production company and City of Zagreb, Animafest Zagreb takes place every year early in June. Since its establishment Animafest Zagreb and its competitions, retrospectives, presentations, exhibitions, pitching forums lectures, awards, panoramas, workshops and all other additional events have consistently influenced and greatly contributed to their city’s artistic life, as well as promotion of animation art throughout the world.
This is a festival by the filmmakers for the filmmakers. Creative animation, in all its different forms – from traditional drawings, to stop motion, CGI, to most experimental cross-media explorations – has been the focus of attention since the very beginning. Filmmakers from all four corners of the world know that coming to Zagreb means joining friends, benevolent colleagues and an audience that recognises, appreciates and loves their works. You can meet all of them, from the biggest named boasting outstanding filmographies, to the up and coming new talents and students, in a theatre seat next to you. Animafest Zagreb is a place of inspiration, creativity, exchange of ideas, innovation, communication and international diversity. Z… is for Zagreb! Daniel Šuljić , Art Director
