The festival features a rich program, with a number of world premieres, with more than 350 guests from abroad, as well as a presentation of a bilingual monograph dedicated to the 50 years of Animafest and exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

The festival will be held at Zagreb’s Studentski Centar, Kino SC, Teatar &TD, Tuškanac Cinema, and many other venues. A selection of cartoons will also be shown in Rijeka and Split.

Opening the event, Zagreb Mayor Tomislav Tomašević said that Animafest was not only a world festival but one of the biggest cultural events in the country.

In his address, Tomašević also recalled his favorite cartoon, Professor Balthazar, a Croatian animated television series for children, created by animator Zlatko Grgić. The series, revolving around benevolent genius Professor Balthazar, was produced at the Zagreb Film studio between 1967 and 1978.
