  1. Liberated Cinema: The Yugoslav Experience's icon

    Liberated Cinema: The Yugoslav Experience

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. Originally published in 1985, Liberated Cinema: The Yugoslav Experience received the first annual "Close-up" award from the Yugoslav Film Institute in 1986 for "outstanding scholarship and for promoting the values of Yugoslav film art internationally." This new edition has been revised and updated throughout. It has been expanded to complete the story of the new Yugoslav cinema of the 1980s and to address major film developments that have taken place in the former Yugoslavia’s five successor states. The list is taken from the book's filmography section.
  2. Pula Film Festival - Big Golden Arena Award's icon

    Pula Film Festival - Big Golden Arena Award

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. The Pula Film Festival is the oldest Croatian film festival which is held annually in a Roman amphitheater known as the Pula arena. The festival was originally started in 1954 and within a few years it became the centrepiece event of the Yugoslav film industry, with first national awards being presented in 1957. This lasted until 1991, when the festival was cancelled due to the breakup of Yugoslavia, only to resume in 1992 as the Croatian film awards festival. It has been held every year since (with the exception of the 1994 edition which was also cancelled). The awards presented at the festival, called Golden Arenas, are the main national film awards in the country and they serve as the Croatian equivalent of the American Academy Awards, British BAFTA Awards, Spain's Goya Awards, France's César Award, etc. The Big Golden Arena for Best Film is the festival's main prize.
