Tagovi : zagreb film festival
The 16th annual Zagreb Film Festival, which runs from November 11 to 18, will bring more than a hundred screenings, as well as a number of side programs to several locations across the city, including the cinemas Europa and Tuškanac, and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Zagreb Film Festival (ZFF), held at multiple locations across Zagreb every autumn, has promoted the work of new Croatian and international filmmakers since 2003. The festival hosts both competitive and non-competitive screenings, focusing both on presenting the best films from young and upcoming directors in the main competition program and celebrating the art of film in various side programs.
A marvellous Croatian fairytale – a documentary about Goran Ivanišević – premieres in Zagreb
The 9th July 2001 was not just some ordinary Monday. The world seemed to stop for a moment, whilst all eyes were fixed on the London grass court and the incredible sporting newsflashes, as well as on the warm human story which was being written there. An historic moment, a shriek of delight, tears of joy and a flood of emotions which are today difficult to describe, were the sign that Croatia had gained a winner at the most prestigious tournament in the world – Wimbledon.
One of the greatest successes in Croatian sports, dramatic matches with broken racquets, wonderful volleys and upheavals, an epic semi-final which lasted three days, a final in five sets which seemed as though it would never end, although a marvellous success in which few believed, the then already written off 125th tennis player in the world, would indulge us on the grass where he had already lost the final – the one and only Goran Ivanišević. The unique temperamental charmer delighted with his game and edginess on the court and a burning desire to final conquer the temple of tennis.
