Fifth Season of KineDok Taking Place in Seven European Countries

By 26 March 2019

And Croatia is, of course, one of the countries participating in the joint project KineDok, organized by seven European movie organisations for the alternative distribution of the creative documentaries. On Monday, March 25th, the simultaneous projection of the Bulgarian movie "Every Wall is a Door" by the author Elitza Gueorguieva was held in Zagreb (in Dokukino KIC), Split (newly opened Beton theatre in Youth Centre), Brașov, Reșița, Prague, Sofia and Bratislava. The film's author was the guest of honor at the projection in Bratislava, and after the projection a conversation with her was streamed in all movie theatres in other countries as well.

The project will last until the end of the year and more than 25 locations in Croatia alone will be participating in it. Zagreb, Split, Varaždin, Đakovo, Zabok, Karlovac, Delnice, Novi Vinodolski, Metković, Pula, Lopar, Križevci, Bjelovar, Sinj, Požega, Krapina, Umag, Zadar, Marija Bistrica, Silba, Hvar, Malinska, Rab, Rijeka, Risnjak National Park are the participating places in Croatia, with some of them having more than one theatre where the documentaries will be shown during the year (some of the locations are open-air theatres, so those will be utilized during the warmer and less rainy part of the year).

Croatian and other Central-European viewers will have the opportunity to see 14 fresh, award-winning documentary films. Among them some stand out, such as the controversial Hungarian documentary on the modern slavery "A Woman Captured" by the director Bernadett Tuza-Ritter, nominated for the European Film Awards, Croatian-Czech co-production "When the War Comes" by Jan Gebert, Croatian film "Days of Madness" by Damian Nenadić, Norvegian "Brothers" by Aslaug Holm and a new hit by the documentary film master, Russian Vitali Manski Putin´s Witnesses, which was shown on ZagrebDox this year.

This year, the KineDok project will also take another step closer to its potential viewers, as the documentary films shown during previous years of this project will be available online throughout the year. It's an interactive video platform at Each visitor to any of the projections will be given an invite code that will allow them to access that library and see all films they've potentially missed over the years.
