At the last year’s Zagreb Film Festival we launched the PLUS program and it was a huge success! In order to offer even better contents to our young audience, PLUS has this year become a competition in which the best film will be selected by a young jury consisting of five high schoolers. Five films intended for young audiences will compete for a € 500 prize, and the young jury will readily take their responsible role and choose the best. The PLUS program will also introduce the popular section Let’s Talk about Film!, giving the audience a chance to discuss the film they just saw with artists and film experts. We believe the discussions will be interesting and well-founded, and impressions intense and long. We will also organise roundtables after the screenings, aiming to include the young audience in a discussion about the film line-up designed for them and how to improve it.
