World record at the first 3D screening at the Pula Film Festival

01 August 2012

Istria: Pula - Amphitheatre
For the first time in this part of the world an impressive 3D film screening was presented at an open-air theatre, at the Pula amphiteatre Arena, as part of the Pula Film Festival. Due to its technical characteristics and a number of spectators the screening will go down in world history. This screening of 3D films at the Arena made several technical achievements, not registered in film screening industry so far.
The 3D screening at the Pula Arena was carried out from a distance of 73.6 meters, a distance which surpasses all the film screenings known so far, along with the configuration settings of the current technology. In addition, a viewing angle of 60 degrees was achieved, which covered the entire auditorium of the Arena in its full capacity
Thanks to such technical settings, another world record was broken. According to official information, yesterday’s 3D screening was followed by 5920 spectators, which is the largest number of spectators at a 3D screening ever recorded in the world.

This was an exceptional night for Croatian cinematography as well. The first Croatian 3D feature film Accidental Passer-by by Jozo Patljak was presented at the Arena. The screening of the very first Croatian 3D film was followed by the screening of Mark Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man in 3D.

According to The Guardian (2005) Pula Film Festival is the most visited film festival in Croatia, the longest lasting national film festival in the world and “one of the three best and most spectacular open-air festivals in Europe.”
