The international program competition includes George Ovashvili’s “Corn Island,” which won at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival; Jacques Audiard’s Palme d’Or winner “Dheepan”; Gabriel Ripstein’s “600 Miles,” winner of the Berlin Film Festival’s first feature award; and Alante Kavaite’s “The Summer of Sangaile,” which won the Sundance Film Festival’s world cinema dramatic directing award.

Fourteen films play in the competition section of the international program, and 14 features have been selected for the Croatian films program, which were chosen from the 28 movies submitted.

The fest is headed by Gordana Restovic, and the festival board includes Hrvoje Puksec, Mike Downey and Tanja Milicic.

Downey, who is also deputy chairman of the European Film Academy, said: “The international program reflects a growing interest from the Pula public in quality cinema from all over the world. And with the introduction of our new Friends and Neighbors Regional section, we hope to reinvigorate our audiences and inspire the local industry with the best of the best of regional film art. And with a jury that includes Karel Ochs of Karlovy Vary, ‘Ida’ scribe Rebecca Lenkiewicz, and Zagreb Creative Europe’s Martina Petrovic, it is an indication of the quality of international guests and other jurors to be announced in the next weeks.”
