After remarkable visits to Sutivan, Pirovac, and Omiš, the Dalmatia Film Festival is coming to Split as its final stop this year.
August 27, 2018 – Visitors to the popular Split Cinema “Zlatna Vrata“ (Golden Gate) await a vibrant film program that will feature 53 films from August 28 to September 1, 2018. Among the many interesting short and documentary films, there are eight feature-length premieres.
Already on the first day of the festival, the Split audience will be the first in Croatia to see the Romanian film Lemonade, which, with its current topics and realistic approach, became a real hit at film festivals around the world.
Filmophiles will be the delighted by the highly praised and award-winning Armenian drama Apricot Groves, as well as the controversial acting debut of actress Lise Brühlmann in Blue My Mind, which follows teenage drama and unexpectedly combines dark fantasy and horror elements.
The youngest viewers (and even the oldest) will enjoy the Polish film Behind the Blue Door. It is an imaginative and attractive film with a fairytale element, which received a record number of viewers in Poland, and will surely win Croatia’s audience this week.
The program begins at Zlatna Vrata every day at 7 pm (with the exception of Saturday, September 1, when it will start at 6 pm). Additional screenings will be held at the Klub Zona, where visitors can watch the most interesting and most recent documentary films every night.
For its first year in Split, DFF has placed its priority on a rich and quality film program, with hopes that Split becomes a permanent and closing stop of the festival, with numerous surprises and amenities planned for the upcoming releases.
The festival is held under the patronage of Split-Dalmatia County and its Tourist Board, the City of Split and the Croatian Tourist Board. All festival projections are free, and a detailed schedule and program can be found on the official DFF website.
