The theme of this year's Animafest Zagreb is devoted to animated love stories of all persuasions.

Almost 350 films for the 31st World Animated Film Festival -Animafest Zagreb programme, which this year (apart from its main competition), presents an extensive theme programme dedicated to love in animation – a topic that preoccupies every man and woman, including the makers of animated films.

From classic, serious and witty depictions of the ‘chronology of love’ (first encounter, climax and break-up), to filmmakers who have raised professional collaboration to a private level, to eroticism which today, when its portrayal is freer and more accepted, a female perspective reigns – there are three slots containing eight programmes. There are also the favourite masters of ‘cartoon infatuation’: Alexandre Alexeieff and Claire Parker, Joy Batchelor and John Halas, Olga and Priit Pärn, Abi Feijó and Regina Pessoa, Ivana Bošnjak and Thomas Johnson, Renata Gąsiorowska and Lori Malépart-Traversy - Daniel Šuljić, artistic director
