Dear Film Enthusiasts,
I represent a small fellowship of film, acting, theatre and performing arts enthusiasts. It is our greatest desire to shoot a short touristic-artistic film called „Advent with the Kolumbinas“ based on my touristic-artistic project called „Walk with the Kolumbinas“ in Zagreb, Croatia.
It is an artistic walking tour of Zagreb, in the form of interactive play and it includes elements of Commedie dell'Arte and a theatrical clown. Our show lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes on Saturday evenings, performed throughout the calendar year. Strollers of all ages are more than welcome!
We greatly appreciate the Zagreb Tourist Board, which has supported our project-interactive walking tour from the very beginning.

Our 6 minute film, ‘Walk with the Kolumbinas’, filmed last June, was created with no budget at all but with big heart. It won the jury prize in the category „Best Self-made Film“ at the Film Festival „Avant and Una“ in Bihac, Bosnia and Herzegovina, last August. We were very happy and grateful to receive the award!
We entered our film into various film festivals throughout Europe and the world and so far we have been officially selected at the following film festivals:
Lift-Of Global Network 2019 (UK), NexGn International Film Festival 2019 (IN), Indie Visions Film Festival 2019 (USA), Wallachia International Film Festival 2019 (RO), Chambal International Film Festival 2020 (IN), Eurasia International Monthly Film Festival 2019 as a FINALIST (RU), Picasso Einstein Buddha International Film Festival 2019 as AWARD WINNER in category "BEST THEME AWARD (IN), New York Movie Award 2019 as a FINALIST (USA).
Our film depicts the beauty of the centre of Zagreb in the summer.
The city of Zagreb was declared to have The Best Christmas Market in Europe in 2016, 2017, and 2018 and was voted No.3 Best Christmas Markets in the World for 2019!
That inspired us a lot to make new project now. Our 6 to 8 minute film would portray the cheer and joy of Advent in Zagreb with us Kolumbinas!
Our first show was filmed Croatian. We are currently working on the English version of our interactive walking tour, and we would like to shoot our future film in English also.
In the first film, I played a role as co-producer, creative director, screenwriter and one of the actresses. The whole crew would be pleased to return to the set including the same director, actors, and our dear guests. Our success in this endeavour depends on your support. If donations exceed the baseline amount, the rest would be used for film marketing and promotion purpose and for pay the entering fee at various film festivals worldwide . Please donate to help realize our dream! You are more then welcome to claim free ticket for our joyful and cheerful interactive theatre play in movement in the beautiful city of Zagreb.
