Responsibility/Optimism/Tolerance will be the motto of 18th Split Film Festival that will take place on different venues September 14-21. Dubbed as an International Festival of New Film, SFF is the oldest international film event in Croatia. This year 34 feature films will be shown, 48 short-features and one TV mini series. Most of them have participated in respected festivals around the world, and since they are far from commercial cinematography, it will be hard to see them anywhere else but at an event like this.

The program is divided into eight sections, details are available here, and beside film projections, a string of workshops, presentations and lectures will be held. Also, an international jury will decide about the best film in each category of this year's festival.
