History Film Festival is a unique international festival which brings together and appraises the production of historical documentary films, a genre which lately attracts more and more followers.
Films of all lengths and years of production are divided in two main categories:
- Independent production documentaries
- Documentaries produced by TV companies.
History Film Festival is founded and organized by ISTRA FILM, an art association from Rijeka (Croatia).
The first edition of History Film Festival will be held at Hrvatski kulturni dom (Croatian Cultural Centre) in Sušak (Rijeka).
Director and selector of History Film Festival is Bernardin Modrić, film director.
Selected documentaries will be evaluated by an international jury.
Thematic conferences and seminars will also be included in the programme of the Festival, such as those dedicated to mutual influences of film and history, to film production related to certain historical events and characters, to the status of film archives’ materials, to biographical film, etc. Besides historians and film authors, a significant role will be given to film magazines and their authors who will be offered to publish the discussions held at these meetings.
Film authors attending the Festival in Rijeka, will also be invited to participate in workshops with a view to presenting their approach to historical documentaries to the students of the University of Rijeka and to the general public.
One day of the Festival will be dedicated to the presentations of a selected TV company and its documentary production. By introducing the themes and the production methods used, it will offer an opportunity to the film authors to present their projects to the representatives of that TV company and to possibly establish business relations with it.
Promotions of specialized and nonfictional books dealing with history and film will also be organized during the Festival.
