ZAGREB FILM FESTIVAL IN RIJEKA AND ZADAR
This year, Zagreb Film Festival moved to several locations, thus sharing its programs with the whole city. Better still, thanks to our wonderful partners from other Croatian cities, Zagreb Film Festival will this year leave its mark throughout the country.
In the past year, after its reopening in the late 2009, Rijeka’s Art Theater Croatia has presented some great film programs. Packed audiences on screenings of European, Asian or South American films and films from various cultures and of unusual esthetics indicated that there was a need for something new and different. On their pat, Callegro Cinemas in Zadar have extended their standard commercial repertoire and opened their doors to other, less known cinematographies, thus supporting the art of film in all of its forms. We are very happy that Rijeka’s Art Theater Croatia and Zadar’s Callegro Cinemas will host a part of the ZFF program this year. Zagreb Film Festival is thus becoming important for the entire country.
ZFF at Art-Cinema Croatia Rijeka In the past two years, Art Theater Croatia has contributed to the development of film culture in Rijeka on all levels. By organizing children’s programs, film library programs and numerous screenings of art films, we are trying to open new vistas for our audience. This is why the cooperation with Zagreb Film Festival, the program of which is doing the same every year, has been a logical move in our efforts. The screening of ZFF films in Rijeka is a contribution to diffusion of a culture that has been pushed to the margins of our society and that only survives in
festival oases. The inclusion of ZFF films in our program will strengthen our theater and propagate the values of that festival. As the most spectacular aggregation of films in Croatia, Zagreb Film Festival attracts attention of audience, cultural public and media. This is why cooperation with such festival is a gain for us, comparable to opening of a new store in the busiest street of the city. We hope that, by showing its films in Art Theater Croatia, Zagreb Film Festival will additionally strengthen the criteria in cinematic culture it has supported for years. Our common interest is to establish a new system of values in which audience would be revived, not bored, and encouraged to combine, configure - in short, to become emancipated.
