Festival location

What is special about this festival is that the screenings take place outdoors in the evenings, more precisely on Bacvice, the popular city sand beach. This is actually what gives the festival that authentic feeling of the Mediterranean; people watching films near the sea, from the beach or the nearby bars, between old pine trees. During the day, films can be seen in the Zlatna vrata (Golden gate) cinema which is situated within the very Diocletian's palace.

Other than Split, the Mediterranean Film Festival Split has moved its activities to other towns and islands like Makarska, Imotski, Vrgorac, Komiza, staying in each place for three days. With the project "Cinema Mediterranean" the festival promotes Mediterranean cinematography in places where people have not in a long time had a chance to see a film.

So, if you are in Split, don't miss a chance to enjoy this wonderful and unique event!
