Dubrovnik Film Festival

Under the unfortunate acronym of DUFF, October’s Dubrovnik Film Festival is the latest attempt to stage a major cinematic event in this historic city. Major Hollywood stars are regular visitors here in summer, but this recently inaugurated four-dayer has been set up for young local amateur filmmakers. Behind the project is the Association for Media Culture Promotion.

Kinookus Food & Film festival 2015

Foodies and culture fans will love this food festival with a difference: traditional local cuisines are celebrated over a four-day period, and sustainable, environmentally-friendly production is highly promoted. Food documentaries are projected at various locations, and workshops for kids are also on the programme; of course, there'll be a market where you can try and buy local produce throughout the festival.
