ZAGORJE SPECIAL ‒ MARIJAN LONČAR
THU / 6.07. / 1:00 H / CINEMA RUSTICA
SUN / 9.07. / 14:30 H / CINEMA TOWER

With the Zagorje Special program we will become aware of the fact that Tabor Film Festival is not the only link between Hrvatsko Zagorje and film. The focus will be on films which have a certain relationship with Zagorje. Whether the film is dealing with a specific topic, where the author is from or simply what inspired it are of less importance. We will try to explore the potential Zagorje has to offer to film. This season you will meet the author Marijan Lončar from Krapina through his work on animated film.

Marijan Lončar (1967) is an author, animator, storyboard artist, layout artist, illustrator, animated film director and comic-book artist. He began his career as a professional cartoon artist in 1988, when he began to collaborate with Zagreb Film as an animator working on the series the Little Flying Bears. He was then hired by Croatia Film as chief animator and designer for a feature-length animated film The Marvelous Adventures of Hlapić the Apprentice. He directed several short films including Trica, Ironing and 2 r II. At the Days of Croatian Animation he won awards for best animated film for his project Happy Cricket. He also initiated and led the project of creating new episodes of the Professor Balthazar serial.
