'The Chicken' at 53rd Critics' Week

The 53rd Critics’ Week short film competition includes The Chicken, a German-Croatian co-production directed by Una Gunjak, whose action takes place in occupied Sarajevo. The film was fully made in Zagreb, and its Croatian producer is Siniša Juričić from Nukleus film, who also produced Sofia’s Last Ambulance – the Croatian co-production that premiered at the Critics’ Week two years ago, winning the France 4 Visionary Award.

Le Marché du film: Vanja Jambrović and 'Houston, We Have a Problem'

Croatian filmmakers and projects will also take part in Le Marché du film development programmes. Vanja Jambrović, the producer of successful documentaries Gangster of Love and Real Man’s Film, will participate in Producers on the Move, an initiative launched by European Film Promotion with the aim of professional development and networking of talented and successful European producers.

The Slovenian-Croatian documentary and live action hybrid Houston, We Have a Problem, directed by Žiga Virc and produced by Siniša Juričić (Nukleus film), is one of the four projects to participate in the pitching of the NEXT section. The film covers the urban myth according to which Yugoslavian president Tito saved the US reputation in the space race.

Croatian films will also be available at the Short Film Corner – a platform for encounters, networking, exchange of ideas and promotion among film professionals from the short film scene, and some of the more recent titles will be available at Cinando, a permanent film base intended for professionals from the industry.
