About the Festival
For more than a decade now, Zagreb Film Festival has been presenting the latest and most interesting debutant auteur films! For the eleventh time, from 20-27 October this year, the festival will offer more than one hundred films from all over the world, divided in ten different programs.

The festival will take place on several locations. This year we introduced state-of-the-art digital screening equipment in Europa, Tuškanac and MSU Cinemas. Screenings will also take place in the Zagreb Dance Center and, for the first time, in a new, charming venue – Zagreb Puppet Theater. For a week, Croatia΄s central puppet theater will turn into an attractive movie theater, offering the best first and second documentary films of authors from all over the world.

As usually, the main program will offer feature-length and short fiction films and documentaries. Checkers program will present the latest Croatian short film production.

As in previous years, ZFF has a few regular side programs: this year, My First Film (selector: Nenad Polimac) is focused on Poland and presents five debutant films of brilliant Polish authors like Krzysztof Kieślowski, Andrzej Wajda and Roman Polanski. Bib for Kids will once again entertain children with miraculous cinematic adventures and the exceptionally popular Great 5 program will treat us to new films from Spain, France, Italy, Germany and Great Britain.
In addition to the above mentioned programs, the 11th Zagreb Film Festival brings along some new programs: Inspired by True Events, East European SF, Queer Re-creation and LUX Film Day! We should not forget to mention here the exceptionally attractive educational program Industry and the usual numerous side events.

The general sponsor of the festival is Hrvatski Telekom. The festival is also financially supported by the Zagreb City Office for Culture, Croatian Audiovisual Center and MEDIA Program.
