The main initiator of the festival, positive energy, spread to Vukovar, Slavonia, Croatia and through the Danube Region!
Ten years ago Mrs Zdenka Buljan who was a city mayor at the time recognised the cultural value of the
film festival in the city on the river Danube - Vukovar.
From the humble beginnings, in the past ten years the festival has become a place where the best
films from the Danube region as well as from around the world have their Croatian premieres.
This is the fact that no one can take away.
Could we do better? We could in one segment – a materialistic one. The art became politically colored and professionally guided by materialism. Everyone is asking for your stand, which binds the view in abstract. Stand
does not question, it believes, depriving us of the position as a silent observer. Creative impulse does not come
from ideological stand. The result is a wimp art for art’s sake - scandal, provocation, anything
but a quest for its own change. In chains of religion, ideology, nationality, color of the skin, sex...
we cannot figure out the simple truth that we are just human beings. Art is the view in abstract,
buttoday there are only few who truly gaze in.
Thanks to everyone who helped festival to experience its own small
