Slovenia

Slovenian animation has seen an historic expansion in recent years. Professional projects ranging from animated shorts to new animated TV series episodes are in production or preproduction, and some projects await premiere screenings and festival tours. It is encouraging to see the projects of renowed authors like Špela Čadež, Kolja Saksida, Dušan Kastelic, Grega Mastnak and others being enriched by the first professional films of younger authors. Work with students at the university level has resulted in a raising number and quality of student films as well as greater popularity of animated films among all audiences, young and old. The quality of new projects has been recognised by national funds, with the Slovene Film Center and Radio-Television of Slovenia as main sources of financial support and a few projects raising grants from other regional funds such as HAVC in Croatia and the ReAct regional fund.
