Pula Film Festival is the most popular and oldest film festival in the area. It was founded in 1954 on Marijan’s Rotar initiative and the aim was to popularize and introduce to the audience the annual Yugoslav film production. The Festival became the most important film event in Yugoslavia, especially when the President Josip Broz Tito accepted the sponsorship of the Festival and brought famous guests to Arena. Thanks to the large attendance and the undeniable quality of Yugoslav films, the Pula Film Festival experienced its peak and golden age in the 1960s and over the following years received various international awards. All these factors had been reflected in the cultural and social life of the city of Pula, which became a symbol of Yugoslav cinematography. The Pula Film Festival lost its Yugoslav character after the breakup of Yugoslavia and it was very difficult to maintain its vitality in the independent Croatia. Its popularity and attendance had been in constant decline due to the war years and the stagnation of the Croatian film production. The 2000s represented a turning point for Croatian cinema: new (international) film programs and locations increased the number of spectators in Arena, with record-breaking viewership year after year.
