Kino Klub Split, Croatia

Kino Klub Split

Kino Klub Split is a film society in Croatia, holding weekly screenings of experimental, underground, alternative and independent cinema from around the world, including features and shorts, contemporary and historical. It is a non-profit organisation founded in 1952. More than six decades of life for an organisation like this seems rare in global film culture.

The head of film programming is Darko Duilo, also a member of Agitate:21C. He has recently invited some fellow group members - David King (Australia), Nikola Gocić (Serbia) and Marie Craven (Australia) - to co-select some sessions, including films by several A:21C film-makers.

The programs coming up in the next couple of weeks...
