Exhibitions / Promotions

Although this is primarily a film festival, all the accompanying parts of its programme carry particular importance, so its exhibition programme is a vital part of the festival as a whole. Promoting the ideas of tolerance through visual arts also invites the public to develop a cultural dialogue and unquestionably enriches the cultural offer of the city.

So far the Association has organized several exhibitions of prominent European contemporary artists of international reputation who have attracted a significant interest of the media, diplomatic corps and the general public. Themed educational exhibitions (such as the Holocaust, refugees, street art, women, children and minorities), which imply the implementation of multimedia audio-visual segment, make the Festival a meeting place of the cultural scene of Zagreb and Croatia, as well as the European and world artists and artistic projects. The Festival continues its artistic tradition with two new exhibitions in their 11th edition – 'From generation to generation' by the artist Arik Brauer and 'Uni-Diversity' by the artist Gianluca Capri.
