Croatia at Cannes

By FNE Staff

    The stand of the Croatian Audiovisual Centre at the Cannes Film Market will be for the second year located at the Village International Riviera in the framework of the South-East European Pavilion, n. 135.

    Eight countries of the region - Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Serbia - will present their cinematic output to the rest of the filmmaking community. The regional umbrella pavilion (no. 135) will serve a dual purpose: as a shared common space playing host to eight separate information points - one for each participating country - and as a meeting place where filmmakers from Southeastern Europe can come together, meet their peers from other countries, conduct meetings and present their projects during the Cannes Film Market.

    The Centre will present four recently produced feature films: a children's film Koko and the Ghosts (dir. Daniel Kušan) and a historical drama Lea and Daria (dir. Branko Ivanda) will be screened along the two documentaries: Am I Happy or What?(dir. Vanja Sviličić) and a docu-musical comedy Marija's Own (dir. Željka Suková).

    In order to give to the professionals attending the Marché du Film accurate and pertinent information about recent film production in Croatia, the Centre has prepared several publications in English. The catalogue Croatian Feature Films 2010/2011 contains information about the most recent feature film production and upcoming releases. Furthermore, in publications Croatian Documentary Films 2010/2011 and Croatian Short Films 2010/2011 is presented documentary, animated and experimental film production and upcoming releases.

    In addition there is the Production Guide listing all important contacts: production companies, institutions, professional associations and guilds, film distributors, films festivals and other Croatian film institutions as well as crucial information about the audiovisual industry in Croatia.
