Well-known Croatian director, screenwriter and producer Arsen Anton Ostojić will enlarge this year’s Star Film Fest. Namely, visitors to the seventh edition of this film festival will have the opportunity to watch Ostojić’s award-winning film “F20”.
“F20” is an independent feature film, shot outside the system, without the participation of HAVC in the production, and with a small participation of HAVC in the post-production of the film. It is a genre film that does not deal with any standard Croatian daily political topics, but above all tries to be cinematically entertaining, although, honestly, it depicts a rather serious story. It is even partly inspired by the real events that have taken place in our country. It is easy to understand for foreigners, so it is probably one of the reasons, in addition to its quality, that it has won a dozen awards at international film festivals in the last four or five months. My favorite recent awards are Romina Tonković in Los Angeles and Filip Mayer at the Pugla Film Festival in Italy. ”
When asked why he decided to present the film at the Star Film Fest, he answered that this is due to his personal connection with the city of Sisak.
I made my second film “Nobody’s Son” in Sisak, and I am emotionally attached to Sisak. I am glad that the audience in Sisak can see my new film as well; that’s why it was made. “
The Star Film Fest says that everyone who stands behind the festival and works tirelessly at it is an exceptional honor that the director decided to show the film in Sisak, under the starry sky, in front of a diverse festival audience.
Ostojic was realized in various forms, from a feature film to a short documentary. Ostojic is an author who has established himself in Europe, America and continues to make live films.
“Although I have been reading all my life, I have been making films since I was twelve, and after graduating from the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb and getting a master’s degree at New York University, 25 years ago, I made my feature films in the last 15 years. These are “That wonderful night in Split”, “Nobody’s son”, “Halima’s way” and this latest “F20”. Working on films makes me very happy, so I always forget that this job is extremely demanding, hard and insecure. ”
But film is also something to love. Therefore, we have no doubt that the film “F20” will attract and ultimately delight the interested audience.
“I would tell them to just sit comfortably in their chairs and let the” F20 “take them on an interesting, exciting and unexpected film journey that is rarely seen in Croatian films,” announced Ostojic.
Finally, the author commented on the current situation that affected the film, but also expressed optimism.
“Watching a movie outdoors is a very nice experience, completely different than being locked in your apartment or house all these months and being forced to watch movies on TV or computer.”
A better invitation to the 7th Star Film Fest is really hard to imagine.
“Rush and enjoy!” says our esteemed interlocutor to the audience, and the same is signed by the organizers of the festival woven of stardust.
