The Small Theatre of Kulturni dom Nova Gorica has been the venue for art cinema for many years. In the upcoming season, the Film Theatre, boasting a long-lasting tradition in our region, is continuing. We intend to showcase the achievements of contemporary and topical film art, while focusing not only on the quality of the works selected, but also on ensuring a variety of stories, authors, countries, cultures and genres. The programme, which has been drawn up by film critic and publicist Denis Valič, is composed of 18 very diverse films in terms of topic and genre, shot in various corners of the globe and in many different cultural contexts.
Cinema lovers will also have the opportunity to enjoy brief thematic film series of independent cinema apart from the Film Theatre. Children and the young will be offered a series of contemporary quality films from the Cinema Roundabout series.
The catalogue with detailed information about the films will be published in September. As always, the catalogue will contain basic information and a brief outline, alongside brief comments by Slovenian and foreign film critics, giving their perspectives on the films. Educating the cinema audience and teaching them to look is one of our basic missions and that is why we are offering this combination of carefully chosen films and thoughtful reviews, which we believe is helping viewers to understand the art of cinema, train their vision and develop their very own critical sight.
Kulturni dom Nova Gorica is a member of Europe Cinemas and of the Art Kino Network, a Slovenian network of cinemas showing quality and art films.
