Dalmatia Film Festival (DFF) is an international festival of features, shorts, documentaries and tourism promo films. The first two editions took place in two beautiful Croatian cities: Pirovac and Omiš. Both cities are on schedule for 2018. edition (Pirovac: 2-4.8.2018, Omiš: 12-14.8.2018) , together with two more cities: Sutivan (20-22.7.) and Split (28.8 - 1.9.)

Under the motto "Dalmatia is my Lifeline", festival offers indoor film screenings during the day and outdoor screenings during the evening and night, in enchanting and relaxed summertime atmosphere of open-air auditoriums by the sea.

The festival is attended not only by local people and filmmakers, but also by numerous tourists from all over the world, because Pirovac and Omiš are lively and popular summertime tourist resorts. DFF is offering a wide range of diverse films of all genres, including some exclusive premieres.

DFF is noted also for its own film production that ranges from short promo films and documentaries to the development of feature films. We are looking for filmmakers and also other film festivals interested in collaboration and partnership with us on these and many other projects.

  • WOOOW! Dalmatia FF is just Fantastic! I was attending the screening in Pirocav and it overjumps all my expectation! And moreover, the fest team is AWESOME! So cool people that try to help you with everything possible and impossible! They brought us to trips and was keeping directors as a holy grail! And as a cherry on the cake - they even managed with our parking fine!
    I highly recommend to apply to this fest and to come to Croatia for the fest dates. You will not regret it for sure!
