17. Mediterranean Film Festival Split

Mediterranean Film Festival (FMFS) confirmed itself as one of the best and most popular cultural manifestations on Adriatic and its positive spirit during last 11 editions was recognized by more than 100.000 visitors. It is mostly because of the movies from the Mediterranean that have their regional or Croatian premieres and which cannot be seen in a regular cinema distribution. But the scent of old pines and rumors of the sea, sandy beach, smiley faces during the parties…it is all a bonus that visitors get during 10 days of the festival.

It is becoming more and more usual to ask for an extra ticket for the screenings in summer movie theater Bacvice, so no one is complaining when watching a film sitting on a bench or a towel. Moreover, that casual atmosphere gives to the FMFS the Mediterranean scent. During the day, the screenings are held in a beautiful movIe theater Zlatna vrata that is placed inside the walls of 1700 years old Diocletian’s palace. Except to the feature films, a great attention is being dedicated to the programme of short films, hosting famous Croatian and foreign movie artists, but also to the promotion of the young authors that more and more often choose the FMFS as the place for promoting their films. The children’s programme, “mali meDITEran” (Child’s Mediterranean) aims for children to get familiar with film art and during the FMFS there is an educational programme held “FilmInkubator” with lots of workshops and lectures for young movie makers, students and professionals and also for other citizens who are interested in film.

Movie screening are held at the following locations:

Open Air Cinema Bačvice – Šetalište Petra Preradovića 6, Split

Cinematheque Zlatna vrata – Dioklecijanova 7, Split

Youth Centre – Ulica slobode 28, Split
