International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of women throughout history while bringing attention to gender inequality. From tomorrow, a collective of independent cinemas are clubbing together to put on a fourth mini film festival  'Ženijalni Dani' dedicated to kick-ass women in film. Over the course of 4 days, 33 cinemas in 26 different cities across the country will screen the feminist films that pay homage to brilliant women.

Whitney: Can I Be Me

French film director Claire Denis’s award-winning 'Let The Sunshine In' will kick off the festival on Thursday, March 8.  Co-written by novelist Christine Angot, an eccentric black comedy that follows the life of a divorced woman in Paris as she grapples with finding the 'the one' and the autonomy of desire. On Friday, the cinemas will screen the fab biopic 'Whitney: Can I Be Me'. Saturday remembers the fight for women’s franchise in the UK with the marvellously unfrilly period film 'Suffragette'. Sunday's film shines a light on women's suffrage in '70s Switzerland, in Petra Volpe’s offbeat, accessible comedy 'The Divine Order'.

Not all cinemas screening 'Let The Sunshine In' (French) and 'The Divine Order' (German) will offer English and Croatian subtitles, so check in advance.
