In order to encourage live audience participation to an even greater degree of commitment, the Festival of Tolerance – JFF Zagreb 2015. has opened a new platform for opinion-making discussions that are closely related to our film and documentary program.

Discussions are correlated with the actual issues of today, they are linked to the festival movies we are projecting and envisioned as a platform of tolerance and opinion sharing, along with the help of prominent guests from regional social and intellectual world.

By raising questions, sharing their own perspective, argumenting or disagreeing, we are hoping to inspire people sitting in the cinema to contribute to and nurture the culture of tolerance and civil communication.

The topics of this year’s discussions are:
