Mediterranean Film Festival in Široki Brijeg

Mediterranean Film Festival in Široki Brijeg

Mediterranean Film Festival is a documentary film festival that takes place every year in early September in Široki Brijeg. The main prize at the festival is Grand Prix, but the Special Jury Prize and the Audience Award are also awarded.

Authors from 22 countries are competing at this festival: Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, Montenegro, Egypt, France, Greece, Croatia, Italy, Israel, Lebanon, Libya, Malta, Morocco, Monaco, Syria, Slovenia, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey. Each winning author, along with a cash prize, gets the sculpture called “The Crystal Projector”. The founders of the Mediterranean Film Festival are Tomislav Topić (director) and Robert Bubalo (producer). Since April 2010, a three-day retrospective of the Mediterranean Film Festival with full competition program is held every year in Slavonski Brod.

This festival has, for a very short time, become one of the favorite festival for film experts and the audience. The festival attracts many visitors every year, who feel very relaxed and comfortable because there are no elitism, VIP lounges and privileges. Mediterranean Film Festival is the oldest documentary film festival in the region and film workshop is held every year that always ends up with at least one short documentary film.
