Farewell to the Pula Film Festival from 6th - 12th August
P.S. Pula – the closing programme of the Pula Film Festival – will present two films every night at 21.00h, 6 – 12 August at Pula's most intimate movie theatre between the sea and the city hills.
On the occasion of presenting the P.S. Pula programme, director of the Pula Film Festival Gordana Restović, member of the Artistic Board Tanja Miličić and director of the Historical and Maritime Museum of Istria Gracijano Kešac have addressed the public at today's press conference at Kastel.
First of all, the director Restović presented the identity of the P.S. Pula programme designed by Studio Sonda (Poreč): “The selection of graphic elements and their positioning symbolizes the location link of the ambience in which the programme is taking place, which is the distinctive plane-tree, or rather the positioning of the tree itself into the focus of the identity from which the film is projected. It is this central place, on the undisputable festival background, which makes Kastel recognizable and such a special open-air theatre. Moreover, a specific level of special Pula intimacy was acquired by a targeted reduction of dimensions in relation with the surrounding area. Of course, except for the beautiful Kastel and the height above sea-level which bring this programme even closer to the stars, the carefully selected films guarantee another memorable film venue taking place only once a year, making it an occasion not to be missed.”
Tanja Miličić has commented on the films on behalf of the Artistic Board: “Among other directors, Kastel will be hosting films by Paul Verhoeven (Elle), Wim Wenders (Everything Will Be Fine), Charlie Kaufman (Anomalisa), Luca Gaudagnino (A Bigger Splash) and Danis Tanović (Death in Sarajevo). Jason Bourne fans will be pleased as well, just like those who like crazy Edina and Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous!. Furthermore, P.S. Pula has not forgotten about the youngest ones and will present the films Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder dubbed into Croatian and the adorable documentary Landfill Harmonic about the unbreakable spirit of young people from Paraguay who take the world by storm with their recycled instruments.” For more information about the films visit pulafilmfestival.hr and kinovalli.hr.
Gracijano Kešac, the host, expressed his satisfaction with the fact that his institution will be hosting the Pula Film Festival programme that has been surprising year after year with its excellent concept. He commended the dynamic timing and invited the audience to come and see this city programme that is, first of all, an excellent cultural addition not only to the Pula summer but also an irreplaceable addition to the summer programmes at Kastel.
The tickets, priced at affordable 15 kunas per screening, approximately half the price of the regular cinema ticket, are available at kinovalli.net and they will be sold prior to each screening at Kastel, from 19.00 to 24.00 h.
Thank you very much for your attention and for following the Pula Film Festival.
