Zagreb Film company for the production of animated films was founded in 1953. The multitude of genres and different styles from that time made Georges Sadoul, a French theoretician, critic and film historian, to coin the name Zagreb School of Animated Film, which has become a trademark for quality and innovative films made in Zagreb. From 1990 to 1994, Zagreb Film was a social enterprise for production and distribution of films import-export. After that, until 1999, it operates as a joint-stock company and then as a limited liability company. From January to August 2007, Zagreb Film is a subsidiary of Zagreb Holding company. In August of that same year, it became a Culture Institution founded by the City of Zagreb.
