Night of the living audience

NIGHT OF THE LIVING AUDIENCE

SUN 14. 7. 21 h
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 up to you to decide what to do with them. The instructions are simple enough: do it loudly and do it your way!

It will be a night of such peculiar films which often make us wonder about the motives for their filming. To crown the amazement, the audience will have a unique opportunity to choose the craziest film of the festival.

Our guide into the collective madness and cry-out-loud laughter of this year’s program will be Mario Kovač, a true Homo universalis of the 21st century: film director, performer, actor, doctor of science, screenwriter, chess player, avid pub quiz genius and so much more… But above all – a true showman whose lucid jokes are hard not to laugh to!
