Discussions

Open discussions related to the topics of selected movie and documentary projections were introduced last year in the ninth edition of the Festival of Tolerance – JFF Zagreb, as an answer to the needs and suggestions of our faithful audiences.

The idea was to create a public platform for an exchange of opinions, questions and answers, agreements and disagreements. Besides experts in the relevant social fields, these discussions are also open to the audience, as an important factor in co-creating public opinion, stimulating of cultural communication with an aim of building a more open and tolerant society.

Every year we strive to offer our audiences a richer programme with better quality.  Apart from discussions as a novelty, for the needs of the Festival in Ljubljana, we have introduced an additional discussion in the form of video conference, which was held on February 26, live streaming from Zagreb and Ljubljana. The topic of “absence of place for marking the Holocaust in Croatia and Slovenia”, eminent speakers, experts from social, cultural and political life, as well as senior officials, discussed the current situation in both countries, about the relationship towards the Holocaust and facing the past in general, as well as (not) accepting our common past.

Through questions and answers, participant expertise, experience and perception of the audience and reasoning, together we will nurture the culture of tolerant and polite communication, create a culture of dialogue and help to express public opinion in the time to which we belong.
