Since 2007, Zagreb Jewish Film Festival screens high-quality accomplishments from all around the world in the categories of feature, documentary, short and animated film which are dedicated to the Holocaust, Jewish culture and way of life and promotion of tolerance. Seventh edition of the Festival will be held in Zagreb in May, 2013 (at the moment estimated dates are May 19 – 25).We invite all interested to submit their films for the upcoming Festival.
In addition to two DVD copies of the film, you need to send the documentation with the following information included: title of the film (the original title and the title in English), name of the director(s), country(-ies) and year of production, running time, list of awards and name and function of contact person. Also, you have to specify which category the film belongs to (featured, documentary, short or animated film). Film in any other language than English and Croatian must have English subtitles. Films produced in year 2010 or later are preferred.
Please send the films to the following address: Zagreb Jewish Film Festival, Palmoticeva 34, 10 000 Zagreb, Croatia.
You are sending these screeners for the selection purposes at your own expense. When sending, please write on the envelope “For cultural purposes, no commercial value” and indicate that the value of the package is not higher than $ 10. Please send only films that thematically correspond to our Festival (Holocaust, Jewish culture, the promotion of tolerance). Final decision about the films that will be included in the Festival program will be announced at the beginning of April, 2013. At the last few editions of the Festival, we have screened around 50 films, as our audience chooses the best works in the categories of feature and documentary films (you can receive an informal public award).
If you do not explicitly ask for them, copies of DVDs sent for selection purposes will not be returned. They will become the part of the Jewish Film Festival archive, but will never be publicly screened without the prior agreement with the distributors.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to having a great cooperation with you! For any further questions, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
