Owing to the great importance of the festival for Croatian culture and artistic animation, a large interest of the audience across Croatia and the fact that most of the films screened at the festival are rarely shown in Croatian cinemas, this year again we have decided to organise the appearance of Animafest in other Croatian cities. After more than a successful edition in Split in 2007, this year Animafest will visit Split and Rijeka.
Therefore, this year’s edition of Animafest in Rijeka will follow soon after the one in Zagreb, from 7th to 9th June, in the Croatia Art Cinema that is also a co-organiser of the Rijeka edition. The programme includes eight films, mainly box-office successes in the world of animation.
The following is the schedule of screenings in Rijeka.
