The films that make up Zagreb Stories, vol.3/Zagrebačke priče vol. 3 are: Za tebe by Danilo Šerbedžija (shot in May 2014), Praznik rada u Susedgradu’ by Ivan Salaj (shot in April and May 2014), Praznik demokracije by Petar Orešković (shot in May 2014), Goranova ulica by Matija Vukšić (shot in August 2014), Tako-nekako by Radislav Jovanov Gonzo (currently shooting from 9 to 12 September 2014), and Na tri kralja by Vlatka Vorkapić (set for shooting in December 2014). The short films still have working titles.
The project is produced by Boris T. Matic through Propeler Film in coproduction with Croatia’s Alka Film, Slovenia’s Restart and the Zagreb Film Festival. The project is supported by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre and the City of Zagreb. The budget is 200,000 EUR, representatives from Propeler Film told FNE.
