Father and Hidden Talent at 36th Clermont-Ferrand

The 36th edition of the International Short Film Festival Clermont-Ferrand takes place between 31 January and 8 February. Two animated films by Croatian authors will be screened in festival's programmes: the award-winning Father, and Hidden Talent by Miran Miošić.

The debut animated film Hidden Talent directed by Miran Miošić will be shown in the L’ecole va au cinema programme, intended for children age 3-10. Produced by Zagreb film, it is a story about a cat called Bjelobrk, who loves to sing but sings off key. The film is included in the competition for young audience.

The Collections section, focusing on the most successful titles shown at this festival, includes one of the most award-winning Croatian films recently – the documentary-animated omnibus Father. The film was produced by Compote Collective from Bulgaria in co-production with Bonobostudio from Croatia and Eyecatch Productions from Germany, and it was co-funded by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre. This animated-documentary hybrid features five stories that revolve around the never held conversations between a child and its father, and all the stories are based on real experiences of young people. The film’s director and supervisor is Ivan Bogdanov and the team of directors included the acclaimed Croatian animator Veljko Popović.
