As the organizers announced this year at the closing of the 8th VAFI festival, since 2018, the Festival will change its name, and except in Varaždin, will be held in Rijeka as well.


9th VAFI & RAFI - International Children and Youth Animation Film Festival Varaždin/Rijeka is held from 28 May to 3 June 2018 - the first three days in Rijeka and then from Thursday to Sunday in Varaždin and in cooperation with Italy as a partner country.



- After eight realized VAFI festivals we decided to introduce several news to the Festival itself, the most important is related to the cooperation with the Art-kino from Rijeka, which becomes the organizer of the event along with VANIMA. We do not want to allow the Festival to stagnate, and we have decided for this step after a long time of mutual cooperation. Art-kino is one of the leading institutions in Rijeka not only in the development of audiovisual activities in the city, but also in the preparations for the European Capital of Culture. It is a great honor to collaborate with one of the leading audiovisual institutions in Croatia, as well as with the city that is preparing to take over the title of the European Capital of Culture 2020 - said Hrvoje Selec, Festival Director


In addition to this, the concept of the Festival has changed and now it is named VAFI & RAFI. There are two sections - VAFI is a part of the animated films that are made by children and youth up to 18 years of age (in three well-known categories: MINI, MIDI and MAXI), while RAFI is part of the festival where professional animated films for children and youth are competing in four categories intended for age groups (0-6, 7-10, 11-14 and 15-18 years of age).


The VAFI & RAFI Festival started with submission of animated films and you can apply until January 31, 2018. Upon completion of the application, the Selection Commission will review it and which animated films will enter the Official competition, we will find out at the end of March. More information about Regulations you can find here, and your films you can submit here.
