April 27, 2020 – Summer in Split this year will not traditionally begin with the Mediterranean Film Festival, as the 13th edition is officially postponed.

While we should have announced that there are just 40 days left until the beginning of the Mediterranean Film Festival Split, unfortunately, this summer will not traditionally begin at the Bacvice Summer Cinema.

However, the happy news is that the festival has not been canceled, like many other festivals around the country. Instead, one of the most valuable Croatian cultural summer events has been postponed.

“We should have written to you today that there are still 40 days left until the 13th Mediterranean Film Festival Split and we would certainly publish part of the program on this occasion. Instead, we must confirm what you have already assumed: The 13th FMFS will not take place on the scheduled date of June 4-13. However, it will not be canceled – this summer will not begin with FMFS, but the FMFS will start as soon as possible. The selection is almost done, and we are organizationally more than ready and waiting for a license to operate the cinema. Have a little patience and soon we will be hanging out at the Bacvice Summer Cinema and the Golden Gate Cinema with the best Mediterranean film creations of the past year,” the organizers announced on their page.

The organizers told film lovers that they could enjoy their films at VOD and the new Kino Mediteran live option starting Monday, April 27. 

“In our virtual cinema, you will have the opportunity to socialize with music before and after the film, and chatting is possible for those who want it during the screening – the ‘chatbots’ from the cinema can finally comment without disturbing anyone!

In the film Who You Think I Am, Juliette Binoche stars as Claire, a 48-year-old college professor who is 24-year-old Clara on the Internet, an intern at a fashion events company. She created a fake Facebook profile for Claire to spy on her ex-lover, but soon starts dating the young Alex,” writes FMFS on its Facebook page. 

In addition to the announcement, this year’s festival visual of Karlo Kazinoti was also published, with the FMFS logo on the playing card of the king.
