    ZAGREB: The successful implementation of the year-long celebration of 15 years of the Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC), which included a month of special screenings of Croatian films in May 2023, encouraged HAVC to develop a recurring yearly manifestation dedicated to Croatian film of all genres and lengths.

    “The Month of Our Film was originally conceived as a one-time programme within the celebratory year, but we noted great feedback and motivation within the Independent Cinemas Network, as well as other independent cinemas and multiplexes. The decision to relaunch it as an independent project was a logical turn of events. The main mission of the Month of Our Film is to encourage the audience to more actively follow domestic films,” said Chris Marcich, Head of the Croatian Audiovisual Centre.

    Celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Pula Film Festival, the programme includes a symbolic 70 films that have won the main prizes at Croatian festivals such as the Pula Film Festival, Animafest, ZagrebDox, Zagreb Film Festival, Motovun Film Festival, 25FPS, Days of Croatian Film, and others.
