MARK YOUR CALENDARS - Now in its 31st year, #AFIfilmEU continues its tradition of bringing the best in European cinema to Washington DC-area audience. This year's selection of more than 40 films includes international film festival award winners, European box office hits and debut works by promising new talents, plus many countries' official Oscar® submissions for Best Foreign Language Film. The Croatian cinematography will be represented at this Festival by film "THE EIGHTH COMMISSIONER" [OSMI POVJERENIK], Croatia's 2018 Oscar® Selection. "THE EIGHTH COMMISSIONER" can be seen at AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center on Sunday, December 9 at 7:05 p.m. and Friday, December 14 at 2:30 p.m. In this comedy from director/writer Ivan Salaj, an ambitious politician embroiled in a front-page scandal must lay low with a gubernatorial election looming. At the behest of the prime minister, Siniša Mesjak is shipped off to the remote island of Trećić. There, as its newly appointed state commissioner, he must organize the local elections and whip the government into shape on an island without internet or phone service. To make matters worse, Siniša doesn't speak the local dialect. Seven commissioners in ten years have tried and failed. Will the eighth time be the charm? DIR/SCR Ivan Salaj, from the novel by Renato Baretić; PROD Jozo Patljak. Croatia, 2018, color, 139 min. In Croatian with English subtitles. NOT RATED

Steve Rukavina presented them with Lifetime Achievement Awards at the NFCA 25th Anniversary luncheon. These two gentlemen are so deserving of this award.
