The 12th World Festival of Animated Films was held June 10-14, 1996 in Zagreb,
where artists, journalists and lovers of animation from around the world
gathered to watch more than 50 films representing the best in international
animation. Although it is only one in a growing number of important international
animation events, Zagreb is unique among festivals for several reasons.

famed Zagreb School of animation, but also a significant political and cultural
institution for the emerging democratic Croatian society....
