Mediterranean Film Festival Split for the second time takes the Festival program all around Dalmatia in project Cinema Mediterranean.

This year again Festival is coming to Hvar and audience will have opportunity to see brend new films from European and Mediterranean production. All films have English subtitles.

Kino Mediteran is sponsored by the City of Hvar and Tourist board of City of Hvar. A big thank you for a successful collaboration.

The schedules for the screenings are as follows:

FRIDAY / August 16th /  22:00

Short film: SNOW // Josip Žuvan // Croatia / 27’

HAND IN HAND // Valerie Donzelli // France / 81’  / 2012.

When Hélène Marchal and Joachim Fox meet, their lives could hardly be any more different.
Hélène runs the prestigious ballet school of the Paris Opera while Joachim works for a mirror maker in a small town. But after a strange power unites them they are unable to be apart without them knowing how or why. It becomes physically impossible. As if against their will from the moment they meet, and against their will, Hélène and Joachim begin a lovers’ dance they are powerless to stop.

Valerie Donzelli was introduced to Croatian audiences last year on FMFS with her film Decaration of War. Hand in hand is her second film. This fun and interesting romantic comedy teaches us that love knows no boundaries and that age does not matter when it comes to true attraction. The film won the award for best actor on Rome Film Festival.

 

SATURDAY / August 17th /22:00

Short film: LITTLE DARLING // Igor Mirković // Croatia / 15’

SNOWHITE // Pablo Berger // Spain, France / 104’ / 2012

After a tragic accident that left him paralyzed, matador Antonio Villalte loses his wife who dies while giving birth to their daughter Carmencita. After a while Antonio marries the nurse that took care of him, Encarna and leaves Carmencita’s grandmother (leaves Carmencita to be taken care of by her grandmother) to take care of her. Encarta tries to kill Carmencita who manages to escape with the help of bull-fighting dwarves and becomes a famous matador under the name Blancanieves.

The movie is an homage to silent film and Grimm fairytales that brings us a unique interpretation of the Snow White story. The film won 10 Goya awards, including the ones for the best film and original screenplay.

 

SUNDAY / August 18th / 22:00

Short Film: SQUIDS // Tonći Gaćina // Croatia / 7′

HIVES // Omnibus / 72′ / 2012

It’s Thursday morning in Jerusalem. Nira is leaving for work, as is Ahmad in London, Ralf in Cologne and a priest in Prague. In Zagreb Matija is also going to work. Ok, he’s not but he is pretending he is. Ahmad’s London rut is broken by a young man running for his bus. Teacher Nira is interrupted by a rap song by one of her students declaring his undying love for her. The priest in Prague does not feel like singing today, he feels like staying in bed. Someone falls asleep, and Ralf falls in love, at first sight, early in the morning. The five of them are all listening to breaking news about the disappearance of bees. And they manage, the best they can, each in their own “beehive”: Zagreb, Jerusalem, London, Cologne and Prague.
