Animafest Zagreb 2015 merges its editions and opens call for submissions

Application: 01.02.2015.
place: Zagreb, Croatia
organiser: Animafest
World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest Zagreb for the first time since its establishment merges the feature and short edition and for its upcoming, integrated edition in 2015 announces screenings of animated films of all lengths. Application deadline is 1 February 2015 and all short and feature animated titles are eligible to apply.

After ten years of taking it in turns biennially, 2015 marks a turning point in the festival concept, which will from now on give a complete overview of contemporary animated world production of short and feature films on the annual basis.

‘Animation is the most dynamic visual art form – from applications to art house cinemas, the number and diversity of productions has never been greater – a real explosion, so to say. In that area, Animafest Zagreb is one of the leading festivals in the world and the only Croatian film festival whose main award directly qualifies for the prestigious Academy Award. In order to keep track and detect the best of world production and present it to the local audience and international scene, we need to put on some speed. I call on all authors to submit their short or feature films. See you at Animafest 2015! Z is for Zagreb!’ said Daniel Šuljić, Animafest artistic director regarding the integration.

The upcoming World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest Zagreb takes place 9-14 June in Zagreb. Submission deadline is 1 February 2015.  You can submit your films through online form and you can read submission terms and conditions in Festival Regulations.
