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...)  Croatia is famous for its tradition in animation related to Zagreb school of animated films- an animation film studio located in Zagreb (in 1956), Croatia and is a part of the Zagreb Film company. The first major success was a Grand Prix award in Venice for the animated short Samac (Lonely guy) by Vatroslav Mimica, and their greatest work so far is an Oscar-winning animated short Surogat by Dušan Vukotić in 1962. The new generation of animators specializes in computer animated films, yet their style is as innovative and groundbreaking as that of their illustrious predecessors. Simon Bogojević Narath (Morana - Annecy competition, Flower of Battle - Balkanima official selection)  and Veljko Popović (She who measures - FIPRESCI award in Annecy 2008, May Way - Cartoon East Award 2010, Götteborg,  Dove Sei Amore Mio - Clermont Ferrand offical competition 2011, Planemo un 2016), two highly influential figures in this new wave of Croatian animation explore new approaches to animation. In addition, it is important to highlight some other names: Michaela Müller (Miramare - Sarajevo FF 2009, Animateka), Matija Pisačić, Marko Meštrović (No Sleep Won't Kill You - Annecy 2010 -official competition, Sarajevo FF, Ottawa), Marko Dješka, Draško Ivezić, Daniel Šuljić. Among many it is important to highlight screenings, official selections at Animafest Zagreb and Animateka, supported by MEDIA. The most recent success story - 2017 (Croatian minority co-production) - Hedhogehog's Home coproduced between Canada and Croatia (Bonobo Studio) directed by Eva Cvijanović and being selected at Generation Next - this year's Berlinale.
