The 64th edition of Croatia’s oldest film festival – Pula Film Festival – has opened at the spectacular Pula Arena on the weekend.

170 films, 88 premieres, 20 venues, and 15 film programmes make up this year’s edition of the popular festival which closes on 22 July 2017.

“We have tried to make the Festival even more abundant and rich this year, and we believe we were successful. This is a new Pula Film Festival, as each year’s edition is unique in its organisational and programme subtlety,” said Festival director Gordana Restović, inviting everybody to enjoy films under the stars this year as well.

“This year’s Pula Film Festival offers a chance to see 170 films, of which as many as 88 are premieres; and what I am especially pleased about, a total of 15 films from the Croatian Programme, the largest number of Croatian films in the programme to date” – said the Artistic Director, Zlatko Vidačković.

The film programme of the 64th Pula Film Festival was opened by The Avalanche, a film by Stanislav Tomić, followed by ZG80, directed by Igor Šeregi.

Details on what will be screened and when can be found on the festival website.
