October 7, 2020 – Two Croatian tourism films are up for the People’s Choice Award by the International Committee of Tourist Film Festivals (CIFFT).

HRTurizam reports that organized by the International Committee of Tourist Film Festivals (CIFFT), a competition for the best tourist film in the world is being organized.

Since 1989, CIFFT’s mission has rewarded excellence in passenger video marketing through a competition – the CIFFT Circuit Grand Prix. CIFFT brings together the world’s 17 best tourism film festivals, making this competition the most prestigious awards and recognition initiative for the tourism video marketing industry.

Two Croatian tourism films are also competing for the best tourism film.

The promotional film “Zagreb Loves You” by the Zagreb Tourist Board, directed by Martina Milicevic, is up for the prestigious People’s Choice Award.

“Zagreb Loves You” is not a typical promotional film. It is unique in that it emotionally talks about March 22, the day when the city, already affected by the pandemic, was hit by a strong earthquake, the strongest in the past 140 years.

“We wanted to record the emotion and strength of Zagreb and its citizens at a time when we thought we were reliving scenes from an American disaster film,” said the director of the Zagreb Tourist Board, Martina Bienenfeld during the reception of the awards that the film received in Turkey and Serbia.

Kaštela – Seven Reasons to Visit is also up for the prestigious award. The promotional film for the city of Kastela, produced by DFF,  takes viewers through a stylized story inspired by the legend of Miljenko and Dobrila, Kastela lovers from the 17th century. The film leads through seven secret messages hidden in all 7 Kastelas through the most beautiful natural and cultural attractions of the city, showing Dalmatia as it once was.
