[VIDEO] ‘Two Raging Grannies’ Open 11th ZagrebDox

NNF_1413A screening of ‘Two Raging Grannies’ has opened the 11th international documentary film festival ZagrebDox at Cineplexx Kaptol Centre on Sunday night…

More than 150 contemporary world documentary film titles will be shown on the big screen in international and regional competition, nine official sections, three special section and two retrospectives until Sunday 1 March.

“I have a feeling this will be a good, relaxed and interesting festival, worthy of introducing ZagrebDox into its second decade. A great team has made the festival stress-free and made it possible to show documentaries different from those we used to see and shoot in Zagreb, and primarily supported new talents, ideas and films. This encounter between world, European, regional and first of all Croatian film is the red thread which seems to be the key to this festival. However, the most important I believe is creative discussion about the films. For that reason, this year we introduced a new section, ZagrebDoXXL, whose aim is to expand the discussion platform with interesting speakers and experts to enhance dialogue, because it seems that this country still lacks it. In our own humble way, we are trying to push it as much as we can,” said ZagrebDox festival director Nenad Puhovski.
