Contemporary Czech Animations

Contemporary Czech Animation: the project of ZLÍN FILM FESTIVAL, Česká centra/Czech Centres and DAFilms CZ started the trip around the world!

Czech Centres, in cooperation with selected universities and film festivals, present a special program of animated film collections, which pay tribute to contemporary Czech animation. Animation has always belonged to the family silver of Czech(oslovak) cinematography and it still occupies this position, as evidenced by the international attention and awards which contemporary animated works receive. Let us also remind you that this year we will celebrate 120 years since the birth of Hermína Týrlová, who was at the birth of Czechoslovakian animated film.

This collection started with a set of short animations for children prepared by Zlín Film Festival – International Film Festival for Children and Youth. This set is made of short animations for children that were once part of the festival competitions and which should remind original festival dates (May 29 - June 6).
