The comedy film Sve najbolje by director Snježana Tribuson has officially opened the 63rd Pula Film Festival at a packed-out Pula Arena on Saturday night…
The 63rd edition of Croatia’s oldest film festival, which will be held until July 16 at Pula’s famous Arena Roman amphitheater, opened in spectacular style with a fireworks display. The Croatian and international programme at this year’s festival features 16 feature-length (7 in the competition, 3 out of competition, 6 minority co-productions) and 18 short (17 in the competition, 1 minority co-production) films, making up the Croatian programme, and 16 international films (12 competition and 4 out of competition).
Apart from the current Croatian and international films, this year’s Pula Film Festival also offers the best films from the recent Croatian history.
“The 63rd Pula Film Festival will screen the best of Croatian film – the best recent feature films, the best new short films but also the best Croatian feature films made in the past 25 years. However, not only Croatian films deserve to be described in such a superlative fashion because our international programmes can boast of exquisite films as well,” Hrvoje Pukšec, president of the Artistic Board said.
