27th World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest Zagreb will honor Croatian auteur Borivoj Dovniković - Bordo with its Lifetime Achievement Award during its 2017 edition (5-10 June 2017).

An indefatigable explorer of the freedom of movement in animation, a master of white, extremely powerful and adaptable background, a man with a profound interest in the fate of the little man in contemporary world.
Bordo has been thrilling generations of authors and audience with titles like Curiosity, Krek, Flower Lovers, Second Class Traveller, Exciting Love Story and many others (including being one of the fathers of Professor Balthazar).
Previous recipients of the Zagreb Lifetime Achievement award include Michel Ocelot (2015) and Raoul Servais (2016).
The festival will screen a retrospective of Bordo films, set up a special exhibition and host a lecture on his work.
