ZAGREB:  Extracurricular directed by Ivan-Goran Vitez is Croatia's candidate for the 93rd Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences award in the best international feature film category. The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on 25 April 2021.

Extracurricular has been selected by the 15 members of the Board of the Filmmakers Association of Croatia (HDFD).

The film centres on a recently divorced father, who, furious because he cannot spend his daughter’s ninth birthday with her, bursts into her classroom carrying a birthday present, a cake and a rifle. The main characters are played by Milivoj Beader, Marko Cindrić, Anita Matić Delić, Željko Königsknecht, Zlatko Burić and Janko Popović Volarić.

This Interfilm production was supported by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre.
