with Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts in Croatia, celebrating the 61st edition
10 July 2014 - Once again, Pula will be hosting its annual Film Festival (12-26 July), now in its 61st year, over 15 days with 128 films of local and international talent in 19 locations across the town including one of the oldest Roman amphitheatres in the world - The Arena.
The Pula Film Festival is the oldest Croatian film festival, organised since 1954 and boasting a Croatian and international programme. Last year the programme was dedicated to the European Union, which Croatia joined on 1 July including 27 films from 27 member countries.
The film festival offers plenty for younger cinephiles. “Professor Balthazar’s Adventure Laboratory”, an animated film workshop with Hungarian director Péter Vácz, and for slightly older children – Camp RED: a film and post-production workshop in collaboration with the Pula Film Festival and Dado Valentić, founder of Mytherapy, a leading film colour grading company in the UK.
Adults can also enjoy ‘Film Nights on the Brijuni’ held in the surrounds of Brijuni National Park which has played an important role in the development of the festival.
