Film classification regulations in Australia require all films to either be formally classified OR restricted to an audience of 18 years of age and over. Like most festivals, we do not have the resources to classify films, and it is for this reason alone that we are not able to admit any person under the age of 18 years to the main MIAF screenings.

Surogat/Ersatz / The Substitut

Based in Zagreb, the enchanting capital city of Croatia, Zagrebfilm has been creating superb animation since the early 1950’s. In all they have produced more than 650 of the finest short animated films ever made. Predominantly hand-drawn, these films form one of the most significant collections of work existing in the world of creative animation. Zagrebfilm works blend the finest elements of old eastern and contemporary western European aesthetics with the most imaginative components of 1960’s minimalist design. Add to this mix absurdist narrative structures combined with a point of view unique to filmmakers who worked for so long at a fluid East/West frontier, throw in a colour palette ranging from the truly psychodelic to the grimly dark and you have a collection of films as strong and interesting as any that MIAF has ever shown. This tribute screening will include Dusan Vokotic’s 1964 Academy Award winning Surogat/Ersatz, along with films from some of Zagrebfilm’s top directors including Dovnikovic, Grgic, Dragic and Mimica.

Surogat/Ersatz / The Substitut
Dusan Vokutic
1961, 9'15
The first ever non-US winner of an Academy Award for Best Animated Short, this stands as the quintessential Zagrebfilm exemplar. Beautifully drawn, manically paced and styled like the 1960’s we all remember (even if we don’t) with a soundtrack to match, Vokutic wraps this deceptively simple day-at-the-beach mini-drama around a perceptive look into the unpredictable human emotions of love, jealousy, murder and plastic beach toys.

Dnevnik / Diary
Nedeljko Dragic
1974, 8’10
An animated diary dipping and diving, morphing and flying through the vagaries and fleeting certainties of everyday life.

Satemania
Zdenko Gasparovic

1978, 13’30
An utterly amazing menagerie of characters of every shape, size and gene pool feature in this rollicking stroll down every street and around every corner. An absolute feast for the eyes and a challenge to the imagination.

Riblje Oko / Fish Eye
Josko Marusic
1980, 8’45
One night, in a most definitely unexpected turn of events, the fish take over. This film represented something of a changing of the guard at Zagrebfilm and it is possible to see a newer style emerging, but one that drew heavily on its wealthy heritage of design and absurdist storytelling style.
Znatizelja / Curiosity
Borivoj Dovnikovic
1966, 7’50
The power of pure curiosity is an incredible, magnetic force. The desire to see the contents of a humble paper bag drive every character in this film to distraction and beyond.
Koncert Za Masinsku Pusku / Concert For The Sub Machine Gun
Dusan Vokutic
1958, 13’55
One of the most famous Zagrebfilm titles of all time, this film simultaneously delivers a captivating homage to the gangster film and a biting satire aimed squarely at the greedy elites.
Mali I Veliki / Little And Big
Zlatko Grgic
1966, 7’50
The classic cartoon chase is put to good use here as a vehicle for cleverly displaying the absurdity of mankind’s apparently bottomless reservoir for creating conflict where none is required and for which there is no prize.
Samac / Alone
Vatroslav Mimica
1958, 12’00
Using a single flower as the one link back to reality, our hero watches on with increasing alarm as the rattle and hum of daily office life turn his colleagues into mere typewriters.
