ZFF Industry programs are usually focused on more mature film professionals. However, we also launched a separate program of student grants called Industry Youth!. In collaboration with film academies from the region, the program offers five-day festival attendance grants to two students from each of the academies. In the collaboration between the Industry Program of Zagreb Film Festival and six academies from the region – from Sarajevo, Ljubljana, Belgrade, Cetinje, Skopje and Zagreb – 12 students with their 6 projects have been chosen to participate in the Program and develop their short fiction films in preparatory workshops.
