10 NFB films selected for Zagreb’s Animafest

10 of our animation films have been selected for competition at the Zagreb World Festival of Animated Short Film which starts tomorrow in Zagreb, Croatia, and will last until June 6th.

The festival, better known as “Animafest Zagreb”, or simply “Zagreb”, is Europe’s second oldest and largest animation festival (after Annecy’s). It’s focus is on auteur film.

And interesting tidbit about the festival is that from one year to the next, its program alternates between feature-length films and short films. Even numbered years, like 2010, are short film editions.

Here are the 10 short animated films that will be presented in Zagreb. Best of luck to all!

The Necktie, by Jean-François Lévesque
