You are invited to the 7th Student International Film Festival STIFF! As always our main venue is Art-kino where you’ll have the opportunity to see some amazing films from 26th to 29th November. We are bringing you four days of film loveliness!

Due to the current situation regarding the pandemic, we have decided to enable safe attendance of our festival to everyone who is staying at home in order to preserve their own and health of their loved ones, so you can also watch the festival online.

In the Art-kino cinema in Rijeka, as well as on our web page, viewers from all over the world will be able to watch 40 films from 20 countries divided into eleven program blocks. The films will be competing for best fiction, animated, and documentary film, as well as the audience choice award.

During the four days of the festival, the program will take us on a journey through various topics; from wandering the real and imaginary spaces of the enchanting program Wanderers that will lure us on a journey of no return, over the Edges of safety of the monotonous and predictable lives we so often nestle in, to the completely twisted and unique pursuits and wishes of the peculiar protagonists of the program Tripping Out. We will see films from Brazil, Australia, Estonia, and Norway, as well as our neighbouring countries, while Israel will lead in numbers with its ever-brilliant animations.

The opening of STIFF on 26th November at 6PM is ironically reserved for the program Adio starting with the screening of The Stamp, student Oscar finalist directed by Lovro Mrđen.

But that’s not all! We have prepared for you an amazing side program dedicated to SOUND that will occupy the streets of Rijeka, and is deserving of it’s own event, so stay tuned!
