An Overview of Films at KinoKino!
From Monday to Friday, as part of the Competition Program of KinoKino Festival, you can watch a total of 6 films competing for the awards of the professional and children’s jury and the Audience Award.
From Austria comes the film Oscar & Lili, Where Nobody Knows Us directed by Arash T. Riahi; a bittersweet odyssey about the different ways we perceive the world around us in order to survive, through which we are led by brother and sister Oscar and Lili. Brotherly (and other kinds of) love is also talked about in the film Sune – Best Man by Swedish director Jon Holmberg, about a boy whose aim is to be in two places at the same time, and which sends an important message about how crucial it is to be yourself, no matter what others think. We will be showing the German film Too Far Away by director Sarah Winkenstette, which stands out with a warm story about the unexpected friendship of the young football hope Ben and Tariq, a refugee from Syria. A film representative of two countries, Lithuania and Ireland, is the film called The Castle, directed by Lina Lužytė, and it talks about the power of dreams and what we are willing to do to make them come true. The film whose imaginative story seems like a dream, comes from the Netherlands and was directed by Annemarie van de Mond, is called Jackie and Oopjen and takes us through Amsterdam from the perspective of little girl Jackie and her new friend Oopjen, a character from Rembrandt’s painting. Finally, from faraway Australia comes the film by director John Sheedy with the significant title H is for Happiness – an emotion that we all need at the moment and that we want to evoke in our young viewers.
The films are available for viewing every day from 6 pm until the next day at 6 pm on the kinoeuropa.hr platform, and the screening schedule can be found here.
