In the international and regional competition programs, 49 films will be competing for the main festival awards – Big Stamps. International Jury deciding on the winners will consist of the acclaimed Croatian director Tomislav Radić (who will preside it), Truls Lie (film director and critic and editor-in-chief of the acclaimed specialized European DOX magazine) and Alexander Gutman (the author of '17 August' – a film that received special recognition of our last year's international jury).
Members of our Regional Jury are: Krzysztof Gierat, director of Krakow Film Festival; Estonian film director Marianna Kaat (whose 'Pit No. 8' won a special recognition in our Movies That Matter category); and Croatian director Vanja Sviličić, the author of 'Am I Happy or What?' (special recognition in Regional Competition in 2011).
Little Stamp is given to the best author of up to 35 years of age. This year's winner will be selected by ZagrebDox's Young Jury, consisting of Piotr Zlotorowicz, last year's winner of Little Stamp for his 'Charcoal Burners', Torben Simonsen, film director and professor at the Danish Film School, and Jadran Puharić, undergraduate student of the Documentary Department of the Zagreb Academy of Dramatic Arts.
For the fourth year in a row, Movies that Matter Award will be given to a film that best deals with the protection of human rights. The award will be given by the jury consisting of Nadežda Čačinovič, university professor and President of PEN, Taco Ruighaver, Director of Movies that Matter Foundation, and Zdravko Grebo, university professor and NGO activist.
