To the Hills! 1st Zagreb Mountain Summer Film Festival This Week

Total Croatia News

Updated on:

One of the cool things I have come across since following Zagreb tourism is how a little innovation and thinking out of the box can produce some quite exceptional tourism experiences at little additional cost. A good example of this would be the Zagreb County Tourist Board initiative, Via Vino, last October, when the county’s wineries combined open cellars with art, music, culture, and film. One very cool event was the screening of the new James Bond movie outdoors in a vineyard, sitting on straw bales under blankets, eating roast chestnuts washed down with the local young Portugiesac wine. 

An unforgettable experience. 

And film is the main topic of the next cool little event to come from nowhere, the inaugural Zagreb Mountain Film Festival, which kicks off this Wednesday, July 13, with 5 nights of music, film, culture, and fun, fun, fun. 


Where else can you get a mountainside pop up Museum of Illusions, for example? Or one of the popular digital nomad we{dn}esdays meetups with Digital Nomad Association Croatia?

This unique film festival is all taking place in the beautiful surroundings of Nature Park Medvednica, on the meadow in front of Snow Queen Hotel (Aparthotel Snjezna Kraljica) in the woods. The progamme is on the flyer above, or for more information, check out the Facebook event page

You can get there via the new Sljeme cable car, bus number 140 from Mihaljevac, or take a Bolt or Uber. You are advised to bring your own blanket and a jacket or sweater, as the air can get a little fresh in the evening. 

Zagreb Mountain Summer Film Festival is organised by Urban Entertainment and the Zagreb Tourist Board.
