Who we are
THE ASSOCIATION FOR THE PROMOTING OF MEDIA CULTURE - LUŽAMedia 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 CINEMATOGRAPHERS OF DUBROVNIKThe Cinematographers of Dubrovnik are one of the cultural institutions of the city of Dubrovnik. They are concerned with the creation of a media culture. This is done through the showing of films and other video material which can be considered to be of cultural value and the organisation of an array of cultural events. This prestigious association supports the work of associations which work with children and youth and especially the association Luža. The association is a member of The Association of European Cinemas and involved in the program Media, which especially supports work which is done with the young.
Where we are
George Bernard Shaw, enchanted by the city once wrote that those who seek paradise on Earth must come to Dubrovnik. Its city walls, which are incidentally under the protection of UNESCO, are 1940 metres long. They encircle the city in an unbroken ring of culture and history. The city is known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” both domestically and abroad. The city is situated in the far South of Croatia and boasts of an ancient heritage of noble crafts, the best architects and artists. All this situated in a warm Mediterranean climate in which both sub tropical and Mediterranean vegetation thrive. One will be intoxicated by the scent of lemon, mandarin and orange groves. One can find comfort in the shade of palm trees and see Agaves reaching for the Sun as they decorate the Renaissance parks and flowering gardens of medieval stone palaces and secluded monasteries.
