History Film Festival, a unique international festival of historical documentary films, which will take place in Rijeka (Croatia, Europe) from September 6 to 9, 2017, aims at offering viewers and film experts an insight into contemporary film and TV production of historical documentary films, at the same time providing a place where film professionals can meet and share their creative ideas for future projects.
The Official Deadline for submissions ends on April 18,2017. Films of all lengths and regardless of their year of production can be entered via Film Freeway: https://filmfreeway.com/festival/HistoryFilmFestival
Thematic conferences and seminars will also be included in the programme of the festival, such as those dedicated to mutual influences of film and history, to film production related to certain historical events and characters, to the status of film archives’ materials, to biographical film, etc. Films will be divided in two main categories: independent production documentaries and documentaries produced by TV companies. Besides historians and film authors, a significant role will be given to film magazines and their authors who will be offered to publish the discussions held at these meetings. Film authors attending the Festival in Rijeka, will also be invited to participate in workshops with a view to presenting their approach to historical documentaries to the students of the University of Rijeka and to the general public.
One day of the festival will be dedicated to the presentations of a selected TV company and its documentary production. By introducing the themes and the production methods used, it will offer an opportunity to the film authors to present their projects to the representatives of that TV company and to possibly establish business relations with it.
