Sunday programmes at Europa and Cineplexx Kaptol Centre start at 11am. Europa will host the classics of Norwegian animation, which is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. A block of 12 films that marked the very beginnings of this distinguished art discipline includes a real treat – the oldest preserved Norwegian animated film, Roald Amundsen in the South Pole from 1913. It is followed by the festival theme section Was ist Europa?, a short guide through the history of animated films made on the Old Continent. At 1pm the fans of short form can take a peek at A Man is One and Many, a block dedicated to outstanding works by European filmmakers such as Bruno Bozzetto, Priit Pärn and Bob Godfrey. The magnificent When the Wind Blows by Jimmy Murakami and the fabulous adaptation of Orwell’s novel Animal Farm by British Halas and Batchelor are scheduled for 4pm and 6pm, respectively. Europa’s film programme on Sunday night closes with the screenings of Grand Prix Approved for Adoption at 8pm and The Painting winner of Special Mention at 10pm.
Cineplexx Kaptol Centre on Sunday turns into a real children’s realm. In addition to workshops at Animafest’s Pčelica Centre, screening rooms will also fill with children’s laughter. At 11am Lotte and the Moonstone is scheduled, a portrayal of adventures of the daring dog Lotte and her uncle Klaus. If you cannot make it to Zagreb’s centre, Animafest in Your Neighbourhood hosts free screenings of Lotte in three cultural centres – Dubrava, Travno and Trešnjevka. For slightly older children, above 10, we screen the 3D Norwegian hit film Kurt Turns Evil, the story of a benevolent truck driver who suddenly changes his temper.
A touch of Japanese style comes with Wolf Children by Mamoru Hosoda, certainly the most popular feature animated director. The film is a love story with a fantasy hypothesis, a funny and positive portrayal of the coming of age in a werewolf family, also one of the most viewed Japanese animated films. Don’t miss it on Sunday, Cineplexx Kaptol Centre at 4pm.
Animafest Zagreb 2013 at Cineplexx Kaptol Centre will close with the film that toured more than 100 festivals and won some of the most important awards in the world of animation – Crulic – The path to Beyond, a true story about Crulic, 33-year-old Romanian who died in a Polish prison of hunger strike. A wholesome, impressive and beautiful work.
