The twelfth Zagreb Film Festival will be taking place from 19-26 October 2014 in the usual venues in the city: Cinema Europa, Cinema Tuškanac, Zagreb Dance Center, Zagreb Puppet Theater and Zagreb Museum of Contemporary Art.
Once again, the festival program will include numerous cinematic delights in the main competition program (in the feature, short and documentary categories). At the same time, our competition program Checkers will provide a selection of the latest short films made in Croatia. We will also have our regular side programs: My First Film will offer five debutant films of now acclaimed Romanian filmmakers, selected by Nenad Polimac. Great 5 program will present more films from five major European cinematographies (UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain). This year's Bib for Kids will offer our youngest audiences a selection of Danish children's films. Joining these regular programs will be our special program of films tackling the First World War. We will show these films, selected by film historian Daniel Rafaelić, to mark the 100th anniversary of that significant historical event.
Industry – our educational program – will include a number of workshops: Bib for Kids Film Workshop for the youngest ones, Palunko and My First Script for young filmmakers and debutants, and intensive specialized workshops for film professionals. A few Masterclasses conducted by acclaimed foreign filmmakers will also take place.
As of September, the news about this year's ZFF program will be available on the festival website. In the meantime, enjoy the summer!
