LIBERTAS FILM FESTIVAL

Libertas Film Festival opened its doors in 2005. The Festival takes place in Dubrovnik, the famous Croatian city on the Adriatic coast, and a UNESCO World Heritage site. For this year's, sixth, edition we are planning 7 different program sections which include:

- competitive feature and short feature program (applications open until April 1st)

- non competitive documentary section dedicated to different cuisines from all around the world, 'Film & Food'

- Focus on Japanese cinema trough works of Takeshi Kitano

- section dedicated to horrors and thrillers, Midnight Madness

- special children's section that will consist of 20 Croatian short animated films and 28 polish animated films, organized in collaboration with Croatian Film Clubs' Association and AleKino! Children's Film Festival from Poland

In 2010 Libertas will organize two workshops as well. An animation workshop in collaboration with Croatian Film Clubs' Association meant for Dubrovnik's high-school film club and a Mediterranean Cross Cultural Workshop in collaboration with an Italian film school and production company NEST. The workshop will gather 4 groups of 3 young professionals - a director, producer and cinematographer. These groups will have to make a short 3 to 5 minute film on a set topic - SEAMAN, chosen because the motive of a seaman is in common with all Mediterranean countries. The participants of the workshop will have to ‘start' the film in their homeland and ‘finish' the journey in Dubrovnik. Applications for the Mediterranean Cross Cultural Workshop open until March 25th!
