Croatia Film

Croatia Film d.o.o. (formerly Croatia Film d.d.) is a film production and distribution company based in Zagreb, Croatia. It began operations in 1946,[1] when Croatia was part of the former nation of Yugoslavia.

The company produced the region's only animated features to date during the 1980s and 1990s, all directed by Milan Blažeković: The Elm-Chanted Forest, The Magician's Hat and Lapitch the Little Shoemaker.[2][3][4]

Croatia Film was also involved in two animated television series: a spin-off of Lapitch in 2000,[5][6] and the satirical Laku noć, Hrvatska (Good Night, Croatia) from 2005.

In the U.S. end credits of The Elm-Chanted Forest, Croatia Film's name was spelled as one word.[7]
