Festival of Tolerance in Zagreb
Festival of Tolerance – continuation of the Zagreb Jewish Film Festival – is an ongoing cultural and educational programme as the only one in Southeastern Europe that promotes the history and culture of Jewish people with a special emphasis on the historical period of the Holocaust. This year it will celebrate its seventh edition from 19-25 May in Zagreb.
The festival’s theme “Tolerance” has a goal to highlight the value and importance of tolerance from the social, cultural and religious perspective, as well as its relation to the collective and individual source of acceptance and coexistence with people of different skin color, religion or political and other thoughts and viewpoints. The feature films screened in the prime-time will be thematising Holocaust, while the ones that follow will focus on tolerance in terms of socially marginalised groups, prejudices and unfair (non-democratic) practices.
Apart from the film programme related to the historical aspects of World War II, the festival will be enriched by an international film workshop, an educational programme about the Holocaust for elementary and secondary schools and university students, round tables and a music programme, as well as a thematic exhibition of Nazi propaganda posters in Serbia during the World War II.
