Art is liberating and should be free. This is the mantra that lies in the very foundations of the Motovun Film Festival, which it shares with the legendary Imaginary Academy, from which it stemmed in a way. Conceived in the mid-1990s as a space offering freedom of filmmaking, the academy was a unique cinematic educational platform for the development of film projects. It was held in Grožnjan and Ohio, USA, and organised by director Rajko Grlić, producer Nenad Puhovski and theatrologist Vjeran Zuppa. As many as 19 documentaries were filmed as part of the academy, whereas its co-founder and director of ZagrebDox, Nenad Puhovski, has selected the most interesting ones for you. Also, at 6 p.m. join us at the Garden for a talk with the founders and former students of the Imaginary Academy.
