Mediterranean Film Festival Split and Kino Mediteran

Dear friends,

I’m glad that in this unusual year I can still welcome you and present the Mediterranean Film Festival Split and Kino Mediteran. This is the sign that our festivals will go on, that they will be held in one way or the other, and that they will be held in order for us to continue the partnerships and cooperation we’ve been working on for years.

For years, ZFF and FMFS have had the goal to present quality films by independent filmmakers and it is what binds us and why it is our pleasure to develop our partnership in which we present ZFF on the islands and small places in Dalmatia, and give your audience in Zagreb the possibility so see a part of our programs and inhale a part of the Mediterranean.

As this year’s edition of the festival was organized in special circumstances and in smaller scale, we’ll present to you only one, but very worthy film: Bad Tales by brothers Fabio and Damiano D’Innocenzo, which deals with suppressed frustrations of the inhabitants of a Rome suburb during a long, hot summer. The film was awarded Best Script at this year’s festival in Berlin.

In these strange times, culture has proved yet again to be important and irreplaceable. Numerous online initiatives and projects were started, and a large number of audiences participated in them. It is evidence that we have an audience that keeps coming back and helps us overcome this “new normal”. You’ll be able to see Bad Tales in Kino Europa Online, and the rest of our program you can see from home at Kino Mediteran webpage.

While at the same time we’re happy we can socialize and watch films online, we’re still looking forward to getting back to cinemas where we wait for you.

Enjoy the rich ZFF program.
