Cinema Mediterranean is a project for the revitalization of cinemas in Dalmatia, the main goal of which is to revive cinema halls and bring film programs to smaller areas throughout Dalmatia where cinemas have been closed for a long time. The project is currently held at 30 locations.
Cinema Mediterranean programs current movie titles for its audience, but with a focus on the highest quality films from European and world cinema. By including them in the program of films for children, we enabled many of the youngest visitors to come to the cinema for the first time and see a film on the big screen. Cinema Mediterranean, in addition to distributing its own films, cooperates with all Croatian distributors and a large number of film festivals, thus providing the audience with a new and attractive cinema program.
