The event, established in 1972, is one of the oldest film festivals dedicated exclusively to animation. As a leading international animation event and the only Croatian film festival with such status, Animafest Zagreb serves as a bridge between the animation scene and the local audience, continually raising the level of audiovisual culture in society.
