Mission / description Kraljevski filmski festival is a fantastic short film festival offering a filmmaker-friendly environment with a casual vibe. We are always looking for great movies to show at our festival and would love to check out your film out.

Festival is held annually during September in city of Kraljevo (meaning "the King's Town"), where seven Serbian kings are said to have been crowned. Because of our historical heritage we decided to name our festival “Kraljevski filmski festival”.
