The 60th annual Pula Film Festival kicks off on July 13 with a programme of the best of international feature films, with outdoor screenings in the Kastel fortress just above the town centre. The ‘National Programme’ featuring the best Croatian films of 2013 gets under way on July 20th, with nightly screenings in the Roman Arena. Clear favourite to sweep up a harvest of Golden Arena awards is Vinko Brešan’s comedy The Priest’s Children, in which a small-town priest attempts to prick holes in every condom on the island with farcically unforeseen results. Dark horse is Tomislav Mrsić’s Cowboys, the eagerly-awaited screen version of Saša Anočić’s long-running rumbustious stage play. Other premieres include Filip Sovagovic’s Dalmatian-based apocalypse-comedy Fashion Tension, a film intended for Pula 2012 but which wasn’t finished in time to be shown. The Pula fest is definitely one for your diaries – it’s getting better and more glamorous – every year.
