The traditional World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest will take place in Zagreb, Croatia, from 6 – 11 June. The co-production film The Crossing by Florence Miailhe (Les Films de l’Arlequin; Balance Film; MAUR film; Xbo Films; ARTE France Cinéma) has entered the feature film category. The children’s section was dominated by the trio of short films Don´t Blow It Up (p. FAMU, MAUR film) – Susie in the Garden (p. MAUR film, Super film) – Mom is Always Right (p. MAUR film, UMPRUM).
Each of the short films is aimed at a different age range and are therefore classified into three different categories. Director Alžbeta Mačáková Mišejková will present her film in the world premiere to children aged 3 – 6, animator Lucie Sunková will show her painted work to viewers between 7 and 10 years old and Marie Urbánková will address older children in the age category 7 – 10.
