The mission of the KROKODOKODIL festival, jointly organized by the Belgrade associations KROKODIL and OK-Education and Culture with the help of the youth theater Dadov, is to stress the importance of literature for children as well as of reading culture in general. Furthermore, it actively engages in the audience development. The topic of the very first KROKODOKODIL festival was the relationship between the writer and the illustrator of children’s books. The central theme of the second KROKODOKODIL festival was the horror and fantasy genre and it bore the title “How to Escape from the Horror Story”. The third KROKODOKODIL festival was called “Biblioskop” and presented a choice of books for youngsters that were turned into feature films. The topic of the fourth edition of the KROKODOKODIL festival was fairy tale. It was named “How Lola and Ivica Saved Fairy Tales”. Since the very beginning, the trademark of the KROKODOKODIL festival was multitalented and etternaly young Raša Popov. He will, however, not be with us for the first time this year and we are already missing him a lot.

This upcoming, fifth edition of the KROKODOKODIL festival was supported by TRADUKI, the European Network for the Promotion of Literature and Books from Berlin, Germany.
