Martina Bienenfeld, the director of TZGZ, emphasized that the festival, ongoing since 2017, is more than just an event—it’s an opportunity to discover new facets of the city featured in this year’s program and to forge connections with other cities and countries. With an international character, the festival has collaborated with artists from Austria, France, Germany, Slovakia, and Spain, featuring Croatian guest appearances from Pula and Šibenik. This year’s festival showcases mesmerizing light installations and advocates for nature conservation and sustainability in partnership with WWF Adria. The festival emphasizes the symbiotic relationship between Earth and its inhabitants and underscores the importance of sustainability and nature preservation.
