Due to the lockdown of cultural and educational institutions caused by the pandemic, most cinematographers (51%) worked between seven to nine months.

There were 99,106 shows and 1,503,306 visitors. There was a significant decrease in the number of shows and visitors in all counties, with the exception of Karlovac County, where the number of shows and visitors increased compared to 2019.

Croatia has six summer cinemas, and they registered the opposite trend, reporting 108% more shows and 53% more visitors compared to 2019.

Summer and traveling cinemas had the smallest decrease in revenue (-11%).

“It’s obvious that a lot more viewers decided to watch films outdoors due to the circumstances and epidemiological measures,” DZS said in its report.

In 2019 the annual gross revenue from regular cinematographic content amounted to HRK 160,365,123 and HRK 1,351,524 from alternative content, whereas in 2020, it amounted to HRK 47,474,883 HRK 252,302, respectively.

The fall in revenue inevitably meant a fall in the number of workers (-14%).

The data is based on annual reports submitted by cinematographers.

Last year there were 75 cinematographers in Croatia, 46 of whom had one screen while 22 had more screens.

Croatia had a total of 174 cinemas with 34,303 seats.
