The 3rd Croatian Film Festival has ended in Sydney, Australia this past weekend.
Presented by Croatia House and Riverside Theatres, the Croatian Film Festival was held from 18-21 November 2021 at the Parramatta Riverside Theatre in Sydney.
The 4-day festival features a number of Croatian films, including hit films All the Best, Comic Sans, Countryman and Into the Blue.
The festival, now in its third year is organised by Croatia House, an organisation in Australia which focuses on promoting Croatian culture and Language through performing arts.
“Croatia House does this by supporting Croatian (and those with Croatian Heritage) performers, writers and artists in Australia through cultural events in the visual and performing arts. It is a hub for those artists to exchange ideas, collaborate and present their work locally and abroad.”
Following the festival, Senator Hollie Hughes, who was a guest on the opening night of the festival, addressed the Parliament of Australia where she praised not only the festival, but the work of the organisers in introducing non-Australian-Croatians to the history, art and community of Croatia.
