Nenad Puhovski is a filmmaker and film school professor and festival founder and organizer from Zagreb, Croatia. His commitment to the documentary is enormous. He has through his Factum delivered several critical films on Croatian politics and action during the war a bit more than 10 years ago. His life has been threatened for the very same reason but he has raised debate and has also many supporters, who have also welcomed his 3 year long initiative, the festival ZagrebDox.
I am one of those from outside, who will go to Zagreb again to help Nenad and his great team to make another workshop and pitching session with filmmakers from the region, representing 15 projects.
The festival offers an international competition, a regional competition, a Japanese selection and much more including a retrospective of one of the absolute masters of documentary cinema: Polish Marcel Lozinski.
For me Lozinski´s film “Anything Can Happen” from 1995 is one of the best documentaries ever made. Around 40 minutes of pure beauty with the son of the director as the main character, who runs around in a park talking to old people about existential matters: Life, Death, Love, Loneliness.
The festival takes place February 25 to March 2 and you can read all about it on http://www.zagrebdox.net
