SUMMER 2020

open-air festivals and open-air cinemas introduce to the wide audience different art expressions, including short films. According to our statistics* people are getting more and more interested, because short movies give a very intense experience for a short time. Kinematograf's mission is to select the best pieces and the most powerful messages in order to reach and engage a wider audience for short films

If full-length films answer questions, short films ask questions.

THE BEHOLDER IS IN THE CENTER

We always have a plan and the flexablity to shape it in a way that suits the audience and the mood.
Three elements are enough to make the experience meaningful and memorable...

  • FILM PROJECTIONS

    films bring a message, evoke emotions and thoughts. They are a great environment for connection between people who come to our events.

  • GAMES WITH PRIZES

    Quick games for uplifting the atmosphere keep the audience aware and bring them cool gifts from our cool partners.

  • QUIET TIME

    ... or time for music, discussion. Time for rest, relaxation and a good talk... When being guests, we from Kinematograf entirely comply the projection with the subject and the tone of the event.

THE BEST SOUND

Thanks to Sony's powerful speakers we provide an uncompromising sound quality at each projection, regardless if it's indoors or outdoors.

SYNERGY WITH SHORT FILMS

Short films are cool and we of Kinematograf work hard to develop the image of this art form and raise the standards of its performance in front of audience. Nowadays audience is pretentious since there is a constantly growing amount of released films, so that's why there's us - to filter out the best content and help authors reach a wider audience.
Depending on the target group and the subject of each event, the editors carefully design the selection to enrich the full experience.
