NoMAD MOVIE ART, DVK, and FMFS: a very artistic introduction to summer in Split!

In Split, there’s a saying: “Summer starts at #FMFS!” 😀

That’s because the Mediterranean Film Festival confirmed itself as one of the best and most popular cultural events on the Adriatic and its positive spirit during the last 16 editions was recognized by more than 15.000 visitors annually.

The primary venue of FMFS is the Bačvice Open-Air Cinema and this fact, coupled with the movies from the Mediterranean that have their regional or Croatian premieres during the festival, brings a very summery feel to the event.

The festival’s program is expanding every year, so their artistic collaboration with Split Nomad Gallery is not a surprise. This fusion of movies and visual art resulted in a unique experience – project NoMAD MOVIE ART.

And now this year, for the first time ever, as part of the NoMAD MOVIE ART, the artworks of 8 Visual Communication Design (DVK) students of the Academy of Arts in Split will be presented during FMFS.

Making this into a truly artistic introduction to summer in our hometown! 😀

Split Nomad Gallery’s main goal from the very beginning has been to promote art in a different, innovative way. Exhibiting in alternative locations and gathering artists around specific projects – all to reach a wide range of audiences, and bridge the gap between the artist and their audience.

This kind of approach requires thinking outside of the box and sometimes brings lots of unpredictable moments, situations, and uncontrolled conditions, but that is what makes the feeling of satisfaction even greater after a successfully executed project.

NoMAD MOVIE ART is no different and – if you attend any of the screenings of this year’s FMFS – you’ll be able to be a part of it, too! 😉

This year’s edition brings us film classics through the eyes of Croatian authors with the thematic focus being – what else but the dazzling Mediterranean!

Therefore, Split Nomad Gallery is rightfully delighted to present 12 artists from all over Croatia and 8 students of DVK – who have interpreted Mediterranean-themed film classics this year.

This year’s artists and their films:

  • Lucija BužaničićLe Mepris (1963, Jean-Luc Godard)
  • Ivan MilasLa Dolce Vita (1960, Federico Fellini)

All movie posters can be viewed during FMFS. With purchased film tickets, you can visit the exhibition before the screenings, but if you don’t have a ticket, the exhibition is also available for viewing after the screenings wrap up.

The posters will be available for purchase at promotional prices during the Mediterranean Film Festival.

But that’s not all Split Nomad Gallery has prepared in collaboration with FMFS! 🙂

In addition to their comfortable chill-out zone where visitors can enjoy themselves and have a chat with the authors and festival guests, the Split Nomad Gallery also prepared some interesting events.

The Design Studio Šesnić & Turković from Zagreb will be taking the interested audience members through the process of designing a movie poster, and NoMAD MOVIE ART will once more be hanging out with kids at MEDITERAONICAcreating film posters through children’s eyes.

So – get your tickets for the 17th edition of the Mediterranean Film Festival Split and enjoy the warm Mediterranean evenings at Bačvice Open-Air Cinema with this artsy crowd!

Inspired by the Mediterranean, in the heart of the Mediterranean – kickstart your summer at FMFS! 😀
