Croatia

Krsto Papic asks for your international support to protest against copyrights violation in Croatia for films shot before 1990.

 Dear film professionals and members of the EFA... At the recent World Film Festival in Montreal, I (successfully) participated with one of my films (Cvjetni trg, Flower Square) in the World Competition and I met Bruno Chatelin, board member at the European Film Academy and my old friend, Pierre-Henri Deleau again; this time, I complained to him about terrible violations of human and authors' rights in Croatia, affecting film authors, whose films were made in the socialist Yugoslavia bef...

Lea and Daria

Director: Branko Ivanda.
LEA & DARIA is inspiring true story about two thirteen-year-old girls who were, on the eve of World War II, great dancing and acting stars in Zagreb. Selling out theatre venues, they were praised in the most superb headlines by the Croatian and European press. They were filmed by Parisian Pathe and Berlin’s UFA… During the Nazi persecution of Jews and the later German nationals’ flight from communists, a dramatic friendship was born through entertainment, dance, but also anxiety. This led towards an unexpected end.

Pandora and her Zagreb!

user
Pandora by J. W. Waterhouse  FANTASTIC ZAGREB FILM FESTIVAL was my first trip to Croatia’s comely capital. When I arrived, I had the fright of my life at 6:00am my first morning. My room was broken into by a creepy tall man and who knows what would have happened if I had not been awake at that early hour (jetlag!), if I had not been facing the door as he began opening it. Well, to make a long story short, nothing better than a hair-raising real life experience to start off an equal...

Fantastic Zagreb nights

Sunrise over Upper Zagreb. One of the highlights of this nocturnal film festival for me was the eerie moonlight tour of the upper old town of Zagreb. We were led by actors in costume through sinuous old cobbled streets, each of us holding dangling lit lanterns. The further we went into the past the further fiction and make-believe blurred reality and a sensation filled me that we had walked onto the set of one of the fantasy films featured at the festival. But this set was the best because this...

LIBERTAS FILM FESTIVAL

Libertas Film Festival opened its doors in 2005. The Festival takes place in Dubrovnik, the famous Croatian city on the Adriatic coast, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. For this year's, sixth, edition we are planning 7 different program sections which include:

- competitive feature and short feature program (applications open until April 1st)

- non competitive documentary section dedicated to different cuisines from all around the world, 'Film & Food'

- Focus on Japanese cinema trough works of Takeshi Kitano

- section dedicated to horrors and thrillers, Midnight Madness

- special children's section that will consist of 20 Croatian short animated films and 28 polish animated films, organized in collaboration with Croatian Film Clubs' Association and AleKino! Children's Film Festival from Poland

In 2010 Libertas will organize two workshops as well. An animation workshop in collaboration with Croatian Film Clubs' Association meant for Dubrovnik's high-school film club and a Mediterranean Cross Cultural Workshop in collaboration with an Italian film school and production company NEST. The workshop will gather 4 groups of 3 young professionals - a director, producer and cinematographer. These groups will have to make a short 3 to 5 minute film on a set topic - SEAMAN, chosen because the motive of a seaman is in common with all Mediterranean countries. The participants of the workshop will have to ‘start' the film in their homeland and ‘finish' the journey in Dubrovnik. Applications for the Mediterranean Cross Cultural Workshop open until March 25th!

Finish Line

user
Director: Slaven Zimbrek.
Recounting a day in life of an old woman, this film is about old age, passage of youth and, perhaps, reasons for not giving up.

Stefica

Štefica is a portrait of a blind woman and the main character’s first name. The film is a recount of her life, her coping with blindness, and her life-long struggle with social prejudice.

This Time We Can't Say We Didn't Know

user
Director: Slaven Zimbrek.
This Time We Can’t Say We Didn’t Know combines the archived footage and still images of the Holocaust, Rwanda and Darfur genocide with testimonies of the Holocaust survivors to establish a parallel between the ongoing crisis in Darfur and the Holocaust. However, as the film’s title points out, ignorance cannot be used as an excuse for not helping out because “this time we can’t say we didn’t know”.

Mediterranean Film Festival Split

Mediterranean Film Festival Split will be held for the third time in the city of Split (Croatia); 1700 years old Mediterranean town, from May 24th - May 29th 2010. The festival will screen 15 films from the Mediterranean region. The screenings will be held outdoors and indoors; in an open-air cinema Bacvice and in a cinema Zlatna Vrata in the center of the Diocletian's palace. Festival's team is an experienced one; young people that have worked on many film festivals in the past. Our aim is to present the Mediterranean culture and film production the best way we can, especially since this is the only festival of Mediterranean film in this part of Europe. Films are not all the festival has to offer; concerts, exhibitions and round tables will also be a part of the event, bringing the Mediterranean closer to all who wish to be a part of the festival. This festival will hopefully become an important centre for presenting films in this part of the world.
