Zajacová, a fresh graduate of the academy herself, will also show her animated puppet film Nazdravíčko!, as well as works by Ondrej Rudavský, one of the most famous Slovak animated filmmakers.
Rudavský, who divides his time between the USA and Bratislava, has made music videos for Moby, Los Lobos and Dead Can Dance, for example.
During the weekend, Zajacová will lead an international workshop on animated film for participants from five European countries.
Zajacová is the first filmmaker featured in a newly prepared cycle of films that will regularly run at the Žilina-Záriečie Station. "From February we are starting a cycle called Young Creators in Front of the Public. We plan to introduce the new faces of Slovak cinema every month. These are graduates of arts schools as well as independent filmmakers. We also plan to feature films from the Czech Republic and other neighbouring countries," says Martin Krištof, the event's programme manager.
