WHO WE ARE
Dubrovnik Film Festival for the Children and the Youth of the Mediterranean Countries
The Association for the promoting of Media Culture - LUŽA
Media Culture against Media Entertainment
Our mission is to provide young amateur filmmakers (10 to 20 year olds) with technical, financial and professional support in their creative efforts. We organize filmmaking workshops, provide the necessary filmmaking equipment and finance the education of our members by covering tuition costs, travel and accommodation expenses. In doing so, we offer young people, mostly elementary and high school students, the experience of spending quality time with their peers. We try to create a free creative environment in which students are encouraged to express their ideas and explore their talents. In this way, instead of being passive consumers, young people are given the opportunity to become active participants in the world of media. By providing free technical and professional support and by fully financing educational activities, such as summer camps, student exchanges and festival gatherings, we encourage young people with fewer opportunities (e.g. parents with a low income) to participate in our programs. Our vision is to become the keystone of amateur filmmaking in the area. We are members of The Croatian Film Club Association.
The Dubrovnik Cinemas
Cinemas Dubrovnik is a city cultural institution that promotes media culture; showing films and other cultural video content, and organizing various cultural events. We generously support associations that work with children and youth, especially the Luža Association. We are a member of Europa Cinemas and the Media program, which also specially support working with the younger population.
