Animated film screenings in Ljubljana's Town Square

Jul 8 - Jul 10

Summer Animateka, the summer edition of the popular Ljubljana international festival of animated film, will bring film screenings to Ljubljana's Town Square (Mestni Trg).

The festival will kick off with After Apples, a film the Polish creator Marta Pajek made in 2004 while still a student, followed by screenings of selected winning films from past years, to celebrate the 20th Summer Animateka.

Night two will see a variety of themes and styles explored by women authors, including Urška Djukić's Cezar Prize-winning Granny's Sexual Life and Špela Čadež's Steakhouse.

The final night will present a selection of outstanding short audio-visual works by female or female-identifying creators from the latest editions of some of the festivals that are part of the Animation Festival Network.

"The selection includes unique stories, created using different animation techniques. Some of them are fun, others are darker," the organisers say.

Above the Clouds by Hungarian director Vivien Harshegyi will be shown alongside Mariupol. A Hundred Nights by Ukrainian-German creator Sofija Melnik and Doubt by Czech director Adela Križenovenska.

The films will have English and Slovene subtitles. For more, visit the festival website, here.
