Tourism Film Festival to take place in Zagreb Sept. 21-24

Next week, for the fifth year in a row, Zagreb will host the International Tourfilm Festival, which will feature 126 films from 44 countries that will compete for 36 awards in different categories, the City of Zagreb Tourism Board (TZGZ) announced earlier this week.

The festival will take place from September 21 to 24, and will also serve as a meeting point for filmmakers, travel pundits and lovers of attractive destinations.

The films to be screened range from promotional films for tourist destinations to films on nautical, rural and religious tourism to films on hotels, holiday resorts, and different cultures and traditions.

The films will be shown at Tuskanac Cinema from 11am to 6pm on Thursday the 22nd and Friday the 23rd and admission is free. The organisers, the TZGZ and Balduci Film, recommended as particularly interesting films from Vietnam, Turkey, the Bahamas, Portugal, Spain and Azerbaijan.

The film programme will be accompanied by round tables and workshops on filmmaking, the promotion of Croatian tourism over the last 50 years, the importance of tourism promotion and other topics.
