Like numerous other festivals, the PUF festival in Croatia got its start as an experiment, in this case following the war and disintegration of Yugoslavia. In an era of great crisis in the Croatian theatre scene, this international festival introduced a new dramatic vocabulary. It was founded in 1994 by the directors of three non-institutional theatres: Branko Sušec (PUF), Nebojša Borojević (the Daska Theatre in Siska), and Roman Bogdan (the Čakovec Pinklec). In the war-torn 90s, the founders decided that the festival was to take place in Pula and not Dubrovnik because the war had largely spared the former. The festival finalised its name, the PUF International Theatre Festival, in 1996.
