Festival short description

The festival is held in one of the most beautiful natural environments in Europe – the Durmitor National Park. During four days of the festival, large number of tourists, special guests and locals would have an opportunity to enjoy nighttime film screenings in an impressive open space besides the Black Lake (Crno jezero), just under the top of the Durmitor mountain, as well to participate in many other side programme activities. Thus, the festival would be contributing to the tourism and cultural offer of Žabljak and Montenegro. GMIFF is becoming a well-established center of ecological identity of Montenegro and the forerunner of the concrete activities and sustainable ideas concerning the protection of the natural resources of our country.
