ARTISTS’ CINEMA is a screening program at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb established in 2012, aimed at introducing contemporary artists and their cinematic works, created at the meeting point of contemporary art and cinema, of film and visual arts. The program presents recent works of film/video outside the context of production of entertainment and spectacle as well as introducing historical perspectives and developments. It completes the programming of the Museum and complement the presentation of this hybrid form. It is aimed to intensify the dialog and exchange on the cultural scene of the city, connecting artists, curators, and critics with the public; in this way it will contribute to an active internationalization of the art scene engaged in the media of moving images.
