The 30th World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest Zagreb, which took place physically from 28 September-3 October after being pushed back from its traditional June dates, wrapped on Saturday night with Japanese-born filmmaker Shoko Hara's Just a Guy winning the Grand Prix. Produced by Studeo Seufz in Germany, the short animated documentary is about three women who share glimpses of their affection for, attraction to and relationship with Richard Ramirez, a convicted serial killer and rapist. The 15-minute film screened earlier at Hot Docs and Annecy, and won the Golden Dragon for Best Short Film at Krakow.
