Notes/description: Four River Film Festival is festival dedicated to high school film or in other words, film made by youth (age group: 14 – 20).
It is held, since 2008, in Croatia in city of four rivers, named Karlovac.
With 365 applications from 36 different countries (last edition’s record), 4000 spectators and 180 international guests from all over the world it is one of the top destinations for young filmmakers.
In addition to numerous great films made by youth (both in the official competition and in the side program) festival also offers diverse workshops, roundtables, fieldtrips, music concerts and certainly the best “theatre hall” in the world – namely, each festival night screening takes place at the different open air location at the river shore – there are four festival’s nights and four rivers, so each night is completely different experience.
