Big Day premiered at ZagrebDox

The official opening of Big Day, the documentary film by Đuro Gavran about weddings and the wedding market, took place at ZagrebDox festival.

Big Day is a documentary film about the wedding market in Croatia. The film portrays all that young people are prepared to accept when organising a traditional wedding: from the amount of money they are willing to spend, to the compromises they are (not) willing to take when organising their big day. Their wishes are also a thriving market that will turn their needs, desires and dreams into reality – but at a certain price.

Đuro Gavran was born in 1982 in Bjelovar. He graduated from the Faculty of Graphic Arts, University of Zagreb, and is currently a documentary film MA student at the Academy of Dramatic Art. He is a Zagreb-based freelance multimedia artist, author of films such as Celts (2011), Bojan (2010), and Glassballetdancer (2005). He also worked as cinematographer on Igor Bezinović’s films Non-Recyclable (2009) and Above Average (2008).

The director of photography working on The Big Day was Pavel Posavec, Ivan Mrkić was the editor and Isa Živanović the project producer. The film was produced by the Academy of Dramatic Art.
