Animafest children's programme!

As always, the Animafest Zagreb has this year prepared a true animated film adventure for its youngest audience: throughout six festival days, morning to evening, at the Movieplex cinema you can expect hours of amusement with numerous animated heroes!

Each day from 10am to 6pm, the programme screens competition films and a series of special programmes. The Children’s Competition includes films selected by media psychologist Martina Peštaj. The films are categorised in blocks according to age groups: 4-7, 7-10, 10-14 and older than 14.

In addition to the competition programme, the children’s programme includes a series of animated treats: the World Studios programme includes films made by the French studio Folimage, creating animated films for children for 25 years. The Folimage-children’s films programme presents the best of their rich repertoire – short children-suitable films from the Folimage workshop.

The film Raining Cats and Frogs is also a product of the mentioned studio, by the renowned animation director and founder of Folimage, Jacques-Remy Girerd. This is the first feature-length product by Folimage Studio, a true masterpiece created by over 200 people for entire six years.

The Family programme presents seven short animated films and is especially devised for children of different age groups and their parents, portraying the joys and problems everyday family life and motivating both children and parents to reconsider serious and entertaining social issues.

The final animated adventure comes in the form of a charming fox – Fantastic Mr. Fox by Wes Anderson, whose head cartoonist Christian De Vita will join us at the festival. The film tells a story of Mr. Fox (voice of George Clooney), who is brought into life danger when three angry farmers and most vicious enemies this clever chicken thief has ever met decide to eliminate him and his entire family.

We have prepared a special bonus for parents and children – a FAMILY PASS at a price of 150 kuna. The pass is valid for two persons for all children-suitable screenings.

All the mentioned magical animated treats for children are reason enough for all kids and parents to start planning their Animafest visit!
