TRADITION OF ANIMATION AND HISTORY  
SHORT PRESENTATION OF THE HISTORY OF ANIMATION IN MAXIMUM 500 CHARACTERS (for example main awards and authors, important milestones, trends...)  Slovenian animation has seen a historical expansion in recent years. Professional projects ranging from animated shorts to new animated TV series episodes are in production or preproduction, and some projects await premiere screenings and festival tours. Some of the projects received a huge international visibility due to prestigous nominations and festival awards in the previous years, e.i. Špela Čadež's Boles with nomination for Cartoon d'Or and awards at Hiroshima, DOC Lepizig, Animafest Zagreb, Monstra and many others. Her newest project, Nighthaw,received Grand Prix Award at infamous Holland Animation Festival and at Animafest Zagreb and over 20 other festival awards till now. Also Kolja Saksida's project of short animated films Koyaa is quite an international success with selection to over 200 film festivals. 

It is encouraging to see the projects of renowed authors like Špela Čadež, Kolja Saksida, Dušan Kastelic, Grega Mastnak and others being enriched by the first professional films of younger authors (Leon Vidmar, Timon Leder).

Established in 2011, Slovenian Animated Film Association enabled animators to represent their common interests to decision makers festivals and connect on an international level (Visegrad Animation Forum).

Work with students at the university level has resulted in a raising number and quality of student films, while different educational approaches for general public achieved greater popularity of animated films among all audiences, young and old.

Festivals have played an important role by providing insight into international production and promotion of animated films − particularly Animateka.

The quality of new projects has been recognised by national funds, with the Slovene Film Center and Radio-Television of Slovenia as main sources of financial support and a few projects raising grants from other regional funds such as HAVC in Croatia and the ReAct regional fund.
