Star Film Fest 2019

Sixth Star film fest

The Star Film Fest, held over three days at the locations of Stari Grad and Theater 21, brought together filmmakers from all over the country and beyond, and through various workshops and screenings it managed to strengthen film culture in the city itself, at least for a short time. As in the previous two years, the organizers started the days with a morning sun salutation, a series of exercises led by Martina Mladenović and Ognjen Andrić. The youngest film lovers had the opportunity to watch Pčelica Maja, the slightly older ones had the opportunity to try walking on a tightrope as part of the Slackline workshop, enjoy an acoustic jam session or take part in a film quiz organized by the KOZa team, and they could also listen to the public discussion “Director’s Position in Croatia”. The open screenings included the film IKEA for YU – a documentary that talks about accepting one’s own value system and creating a stable and loving family, and the film The Last Serb in Croatia, the feature debut of Predrag Ličina, and the music program during these three days was provided by Zagreb’s Elemental  band and Stephany Stefan, a multidisciplinary artist from Rijeka who, together with the members of her eponymous band, has created numerous artistic visualizations.

Sixteen films were shown through three blocks of screenings, and the jury, which consisted of Dinka Radonić, last year’s Star Film Fest winner Federico Schmukler, Dino Pešut, Filip Mayer, Bobby Boško Grubić and Nina Kojc, awarded the award for the best animated film of the 6th Star Film Fest. awarded to the film My Body by director duo Sandralee Zinzen and Nicolas Nivesse.
