In a continuing cultural exchange between Croatia and CFI Education, Jasminka Ljubic
, co-director of SAF (Children's Animation School) in Cakovec, Croatia, accompanies three of her star students (12, 13 and 16) for this screening of recent works from SAF. These world-class animated films by students 8-18 have won numerous international prizes and exhibit a deft humor typical of adult animators in Eastern Europe. The films utilize all forms of animation: puppets, clay, cutouts, hand-drawn and computerized. SAF has been teaching young people since 1975 and their work has been featured at the Mill Valley Film Festival's Children's FilmFest for several years. Program approximately 90 minutes.
