Through thematic educational exhibitions, described as highly artistic, multi-disciplinary and purporting the implementation of the multi-media and audio-visual segments, the Jewish Film Festival makes Zagreb the meeting point for the Croatian cultural scene and European and international art projects. With the innovative and interactive thematic exhibitions dedicated to the Holocaust, the Zagreb Jewish Film Festival enriches the city’s cultural offer introducing dynamics in the communication with the European and international cultural scene.
The Zagreb Jewish Film Festival is a symbol of the exchange of cultural initiatives and education involving many cultural and social categories that act jointly. Dislocation of exhibitions and the musical program outside of the main venue (the Europa Cinema) at other public and cultural institutions (The Home of HDLU, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the VIP club...) makes the entire project more dynamic, simultaneously contributing to a better visibility of many cultural institutions in Zagreb.
Numerous thematic exhibitions included in the Festival’s program serve as the indicator of Festival's constant development, its program’s interdisciplinary and multimedia character reflected in the growing number of visitors every year. Some 1500 people visited the three thematic exhibitions set up at the Karas Gallery, HDLU and the Europa Cinema within the framework of the last, 6th Festival. Thematic exhibitions are also a tool for the development of the international cooperation (Seiji Kimoto with his exhibition Power and Powerlessness at the Karas Gallery; exhibition Poster Project in cooperation with the Jasenovac Memorial Centre and Yad Vashem) and the cooperation between different sectors (exhibition Two Faces of Roma Reality in cooperation with the UNHCR).Thematic exhibitions at the 6th festival were realized with the German Embassy in Zagreb, the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the logistical and financial support of the Goethe Institute in Zagreb, the Jasenovac Memorial Centre, the Yad Vashem Memorial Museum from Israel, the UNHCR and the Croatian Association of Artists. Other exhibitions hosted by the Festival were: No child’s play in 2009 in cooperation with the Yad Vashem Memorial Museum from Israel and Faces of Resistance: Women in the Holocaust, which is an innovative travelling exhibition developed by the Moreshet from Israel and displayed in 2011. With the thematic exhibitions, the Festival actively connects the European and international centres with the institutions based in Zagreb, promoting the idea of tolerance through culture and arts.
