Upcoming Screenings

Upcoming in 2014:

Zagreb Jewish Film Festival

European premiere!
Zagreb, Croatia
May 18 - 24, 2014

What has singled out this Festival as internationally unique from the very start is its devotion to the subject of the Holocaust and the education of all generations, especially schoolchildren, through various lectures and workshops on the necessity of understanding the different. We are dedicated to education and warning the wider public about the omnipresent neo-fascist iconography in the public life of Croatia and wider, about the verbal and graphic hate speech, and the violent behavior of certain social groups and individuals. Far too often, we turn our heads away from these problems instead of confronting them. Even today we are witnesses to the usage of the symbols of hatred which surround us on a daily basis, sometimes aptly hidden behind the curtain of sports events, especially football matches, concerts, and the notion of patriotism. The community in which we live, and in which this Festival is held, has still not become aware of the atrocities that took place in our recent history, nor has it properly confronted this topic. That is why this Festival is an important public platform which, with each year, is visited by more and more people and which ever so clearly reminds us of the terrors of the Holocaust: it should not be forgotten!
