Let’s have more information about the events happening this weekend:


Composer and director Stephen Warbeck (who won an Oscar for his score to the film Shakespeare in Love) and actor Ciarán Hinds (nominated for an Oscar this year for his role in Belfast, who also starred in films such as Munich, Harry Potter, There Will Be Blood …) will be the main guests of the festival.

In addition, one of the most famous and best French pianists, Jean-Michel Bernard, will attend ISFMF 2022 to perform a concert with film music and, especially, the music of great composer Alfi Kabiljo, who received in 2021 the Crystal Pine for Lifetime Achievement Award. The musical part of the program will be completed with artistic director and composer Ozren K. Glaser, singer-songwriter Elis Lovrić and others.



The first concert will be on Friday, October 7th at 17:00h at the Small hall of the Prica gallery. Considering that different arts often go hand in hand, the ISFMF will present the symbiosis of music and painting – through the vision of colors on the canvas of the painter Žana Bajić, and with the musical performance of the singer Nera Stipičević, known under the stage name FreeDA Nera Immortelle, and Ozren K. Glaser. Free Entry.
