    ZAGREB: The Staffroom / Zbornica, the debut feature of Sonja Tarokić, screens in the main competition of the Zagreb Film Festival, which runs 14 – 21 November 2021. The film produced by Ankica Jurić Tilić from Kinorama won the Ecumenical Jury Prize and the Special Jury Prize when it premiered at the Karlovy Vary IFF.

    Despite her lack of experience, Anamarija starts her first year as a school counsellor with enthusiasm, having grown tired of her two-year-long maternity leave. However, confronted with the restrictions of the school system and surrounded by burnt-out and apathetic teachers, she wages her own war against the problem of the history teacher, unaware that in doing so she is gradually becoming like the rest of her colleagues in the staffroom.

    The reported budget of the film was 1.2 m EUR. The Croatian Audiovisual Centre supported the film. The project participated in the Torino Script&Pitch Film Lab 2015.
