SPECIAL EVENTS | Exhibitions


Date: June 4 - 8, 2014
Venue: ULUPUH Gallery, Zagreb

The Croatian puppet-film panorama in the central programme of Animafest 2014 is accompanied by the Exhibition of Croatian Puppet Film, curated by Božidar Trkulja, an accomplished filmmaker working in this technique, at ULUPUH Gallery (Ivan Tkalčić Street 14, Tue-Sat 10-20 h, Sun 10-13 h).

The exhibition presents puppets and models used to make ten Croatian puppet films, including those appearing in the Animafest 2014 selection, but also exclusives like the unfinished or recently finished works Jure Grando: Štrigun iz Kringe by Martin Babić, Tajni laboratorij Nikole Tesle by Bruno Razum, Arktički pirat by David Peroš Bonnot, and Visina by Sanja Šantak.

A special guest is the Slovenian filmmaker Špela Čadež, whose film Boles, winning over 30 awards in the last year, is screened in Animafest 2014 Grand Panorama. Following some rare classics from the time of the Zagreb School of Animation, puppet animation in Croatia saw a renaissance only in the mid-2000s.

The exhibition of Croatian puppet film at ULUPUH Gallery, opening on Wednesday, 4 June, provides a sort of insight into this interesting trend in local animation.

 Free admission.
