Road movie

Road movie

The cycle 'Road film' introduces different cinematography and author's approaches in which the road is the main, but not the only common denominator, and will be shown throughout July and will provide an overview of contemporary and cult films of different genres and styles of an already almost cult genre that mostly take place on a journey - be it symbolic or literal.

Although typical for American cinematography, throughout July we will also travel through French, Swedish, Danish, Italian and Croatian film roads.

Tickets for screenings from the Film Road cycle can be purchased HERE.
