The festival will screen 15 films from the Mediterranean region. The screenings will be held outdoors and indoors; in an open-air cinema Bacvice and in a cinema Zlatna Vrata in the center of the Diocletian's palace. Festival's team is an experienced one; young people that have worked on many film festivals in the past. Our aim is to present the Mediterranean culture and film production the best way we can, especially since this is the only festival of Mediterranean film in this part of Europe. Films are not all the festival has to offer; concerts, exhibitions and round tables will also be a part of the event, bringing the Mediterranean closer to all who wish to be a part of the festival. This festival will hopefully become an important centre for presenting films in this part of the world.
