Festival of Tolerance


Years running: 16 (since 2007)

Festival of Tolerance

Zagreb Jewish Film Festival.


The Festival of Tolerance – Jewish Film Festival is a unique film festival focused on Holocaust education through an extensive film programme comprising many screenings, thematic exhibitions, music programme, a host of discussions and workshops. The Festival aims to emphasize the necessity of raising awareness and accepting tolerance in our everyday lives in this day and age.

Besides recalling the Holocaust, the Festival warns about different social phenomena and current social problems: discrimination of minorities, xenophobia, homophobia, integration of asylum seekers and attitudes towards senior citizens.

The Festival is now present in six cities of the region (Belgrade, Cetinje, Ljubljana, Rijeka, Sarajevo, Vienna) in its somewhat abbreviated version. This year we have also accepted the invitation to present the festival in the German city of Mannheim.

Over the past eight years, more than 100 000 people visited our documentary and feature film screenings and we are proud to say that more than 15 000 young people participated in our educational mornings.

This year we are introducing a new type of programme, i.e. open thematic discussions related to the film screenings, with the participation of experts from different fields. The intention is to encourage the audience to take part in creating the public opinion that will eventually lead to a more open and tolerant society.
