ZAGREB, 2 May 2021 - The Festival of Tolerance will take place at Zagreb's Lake Bundek from 1 to 10 July, featuring a selection of successful and intriguing films, interesting and thought-provoking exhibitions and socially important lectures and educational programmes.

The organizers have announced that the festival's 15th edition will also feature an attractive music programme, and the mission is the same as before -- to promote a tolerant, progressive and supportive society.

This year's edition is especially important to us because we feel a huge need to make the voice of all the disenfranchised heard, said Nataša Popović, the director of the Festival of Tolerance.

About 50 films will be screened at the festival, including a Swiss drama with elements of a thriller, "The Saint of the Impossible", a Dutch music documentary, "Here We Move Here We Groove", and a Czech youth film, "The Pack", which deals with peer violence in sports.

Hrvoje Pukšec, who is responsible for the festival's film programmes, said that they had prepared "an excellent film programme which, we are sure, will delight an audience eager for intelligent, important but also cheerful, optimistic films".

There will also be a great accompanying programme, such as two exhibitions and performances by renowned musicians, he added.

Traditionally, the programme is free of charge, co-financed by the City of Zagreb, the Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC), UNHCR Croatia, and other partners.
