MISSION

The mission of the Festival of Film Music (ISFMF) is the promotion and preservation of film music as an irreplaceable element of film which is a great art itself, as well as the film sound. Also, the mission is to expand awareness among the audience and filmmakers on the importance of original music and sound in film. The festival’s programme includes concerts of film music, panels and seminars, workshops, film market and parties.

PULA

On the magnificent coast of Istria (Croatia), right below the Lim Fjord, is the most romantic place in the Mediterranean!

The wealth of Roman architecture makes otherwise workaday Pula (ancient Polensium) a standout among Croatia’s larger cities. The star of the show is the remarkably well-preserved Roman amphitheater, smack in the heart of the city, which dominates the streetscape and doubles as a venue for concerts and festivals.
Historical attractions aside, Pula is a busy commercial city on the sea that has managed to retain a friendly small-town appeal. Just a short bus ride away, a series of beaches await at the resorts that occupy the Verudela Peninsula to the south. The coast is dotted with fragrant pine groves, seaside cafes and a clutch of good restaurants. Further south along the indented shoreline, the Premantura Peninsula hides a spectacular nature park, the protected Cape of Kamenjak.
