This is the seventh annual festival dedicated to Jewish culture and the Holocaust focussing once again on tolerance within the context of the struggle for life and coexistence in the widest sense of the term.
Amongst the thirty documentaries to be screened are two Oscar award winners - Inocente by Sean Fine and Andre Nix Fine about a very artistic teenager whose family is homeless.
Daniel Junge film Saving Face is competing in the same category and it won an Academy Award last year for the film, which he directed along with Pakistani film-maker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.
One of the twenty feature films to be screened includes an award winning film by David Wnendt, Combat Girls presenting a portrait of a young racist and fascist in the turmoil of social-economic circumstances in modern-day Eastern Germany.
In addition to screening films the festival will include an International Talent Workshop for students who will produce a film which will be screened at the closing of the festival.
Entry to the festival and exhibits, musical events and workshop are free of charge. The Rijeka session of the festival will be held 7 - 9 June.
