Croatian Month - 2014

In November, plunge into Croatia’s history, society and culture
with Eurochannel’s Croatian Month 

This November, Eurochannel is proud to present the Croatian Month. This special presentation, with the support of the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, showcases - for the first time in the USA and Latin America - an exciting collection of short films, movies, documentaries, music specials and more. In a fitting tribute to Croatia’s most renowned artists, this month offers an exciting introduction to the entire spectrum of modern Croat culture.

It has been a year since Croatia officially joined the European Union, and in Eurochannel we celebrate it with what we can offer best: their audiovisual endeavors. With a rich history that comprises Greek, Roman, Iranian, Ottoman and many other cultures, Croatian is a republic with one of the richest heritage diversity as it was also part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and led the formation of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and then, the so-called Second Yugoslavia.

With one of the highest Human Development Index rank in the world, Croatia has become a breeding ground for actors, directors, and musicians who seek to break new ground with their fresh talent and youthful passion. This November, Eurochannel highlights the best of their work.

In a varied lineup, November offers numerous films, some appearing for the very first time on American television. Through compelling and provoking stories, we present the gripping charms of their cinema production. Comedy, suspense, drama, romance and polemical social issues will be present in this month’s programming alongside A-list actors and directors such as actor Rade Serbedzija, a star in the Hollywood blockbusters Mission: Impossible II, Batman Begins, and X-Men: First Class, Before The Rain, Eyes Wide Shut, amongst others.

In November, a hand-picked selection of movies, short films, documentaries and music artists will treat Eurochannel’s viewers with the most selected of Croatia’s entertainment. The Croatian Month is a unique event for a discerning audience.

Eurochannel's Croatian Month highlights not only the talent found in Croatian Cinema but also counts with the help of the talented youth of Croatia. We are delighted to count with the support of Televizija Student and showcase their work through interviews with Vlatka Vorkapić (Sonja and the Bull), Saša Ban (Pretty Boy), and Nebojsa Slijepcevic (Gangster of Love).
