As reported by zagrebinfo, tickets for films from the main competition program of this year`s Zagreb Film Festival sold out during the first three days of the festival, and the audience is requesting `additional tickets` for both morning and afternoon screenings.
The festival’s organizers also reported that they have sold ten percent more pre-sale tickets at the beginning of the festival. In addition to requests for additional tickets, they are continually getting inquiries as to whether the films will receive cinema distribution.
They note that the considerable interest once again shows that the Zagreb audience is very eager for new quality titles and is not ready to abandon the tradition of watching movies together.
The first sold-out season of tickets was opened by Taika Waititi`s film “Jojo Rabbit” from the “Together Again” program, and all five screenings of the films from the main feature film competition at Tuškanac Cinema were sold out within the first three days.
The seventeenth edition of the Zagreb Film Festival offers more than a hundred films across 12 programs and runs through November 17th. There are 11 feature films, 10 international films and 10 Croatian short films from the “Checkers” program, which are in the race for the festival awards. The festival takes place in as many as eight Zagreb venues, and is being hosted in some twenty cities across Croatia.
A complete festival program and schedule can be found on the 2019 Zagreb Film Festival website.
