    “We are proud to say that this is the first time when the festival is supported by the MEDIA sub-programme of the Creative Europe fund. We have a new programme Parangal for films outside of the Mediterranean region that we think are worth seeing. We will also present four regional festivals, a special programme for children and young adults, and the short programme in collaboration with the European Film Academy. We have also prepared screenplay, videogame and film dubbing workshops for film professionals”, announced Alen Munitić, the director of FMFS.

    Especially popular with the audience is the Ješke programme, dedicated to Croatian short films. Authors of these films are competing for the biggest cash prize in Croatia given to a short film. The winner will receive 2,000 EUR / 15,000 HRK, while 670 EUR / 5,000 HRK will be given to the film that gets the most audience votes, and also to the author of the best screenplay.
