night of the living audience

NIGHT OF THE LIVING AUDIENCE
SAT / 7. 7.   21h  / CINEMA TABOR VAROSH

How many times did you want to react to a film, but the presence of other people distracted you? We are creating a cinema in which active participation during the film is not only allowed, but desirable. We offer the props, it’s on you to decide what to do with them. It will be the night of those films which make us wonder about the motives for their filming. To further the amazement, the audience will have the unique opportunity to choose the craziest film of the festival.

Vlatko Štampar, a hard-bitten comedian with 10 years of experience in stand-up comedy,  will lead us into this year’s collective madness and laughter. Vlatko is the embodiment of all the deranged thoughts that come to us in that part of the mind we ignore for a reason. His life mission is to make people laugh, which he manages to do every time.
