DID YOU KNOW…?
In 1953, the Croatian Union of Film Workers founded a film company Zagreb Film, which was supposed to deal with all kinds of film activities, from distribution to production of shorts and feature films.
In 1956, Zagreb Film opened the Studio for Animated Film, where the continuous work on animated films in Croatia was resumed after a several year break.
Every Zagreb author has always worked in his unique style and had his own vision of the animation art (it remains so today).
Many people in the world associated with animation claim they can recognize Zagreb’s animated films by one sequence.
