We are very pleased the Water Bearer has been selected to participate in the 5th edition of  VAFI  in Croatia. Below a little about the festival.

VAFI– International Children and Youth Animation Film Festival in desire to make Varaždin and Croatia a place where children and youth, professionals, our guests and all animation lovers will be able to exchange their experience and make new friendships beyond their own states; a place where children and young people will enjoy films; where they will learn and associate at the same time. VAFI will be held from 22 to 27 April 2014,  the professional selection will be shown will be shown during 22 to 24 April.

So the next step we took is that we have formed an special section for animated films made for children and yout called VAFI SENIOR. In this way VAFI will be the true festival of films, animation, children and youth and not only the festival of prizes. Little and big animators will have a chance to associate and exchange ideas, they will learn from each other.  Part of VAFI which represents animated films made by children and youth now will be called VAFI JUNIOR.
