Days of art film in Bol
In cooperation with the Cultural Center of the Municipality of Bol and as part of the cultural manifestation of the 30th Bol Summer, for the eighth year in a row, at the invitation of our internationally renowned artist Renata Poljak, the Days of Art Film in Bol on Brac continue.
This year’s location is the Cinema Under the Stars – Bol Summer Cinema, which will become one of the few places in Croatia to see contemporary art production in the form of video and film in four days (August 15-18). All screenings start at 10 pm at the Bol Summer Cinema and there is free admission to all screenings for visitors.
The program begins on August 15 with the premiere of works by one of the world’s most prominent middle-class artists, Enrique Ramirez, whose films were screened at the Venice Biennale as part of the 2017 Central Exhibition and are in the collections of almost all relevant museums in France as well as in the MOMA Museum in New York. Enrigue Ramirez is originally from Chile with an address in Paris. In a poetic way, he talks about politics and the situation in society in the different environments he comes from and where he lives, using the sea as a frequent element of his amazing films. Ramirez has received more than 17 awards at international festivals and / or events of contemporary art for his work.
The following day, August 16, the audience will see the works of Boris Polak, cinematographer and director, who will present a trilogy of films in Bol, which operate on the principle of an observational documentary and arouse the audience’s delight. Boris Polack’s last two films, Autofocus and They Go and Come, have been collecting awards at festivals both in Croatia and abroad.
The third day of the festival, on August 17, will feature works by Phil Colins, who lives in Berne, originally from Runcorn, England, and was one of the nominees for the Turner Prize. Colins is an otherwise well-known visual artist as well as a director, and will present his fantastic film, Parade / Ceremony, in Bol, linking the 2017 Manchester Revolution and the 1917 October Revolution.
On the last day of the program, on August 18, the works of Greece’s Eva Stefani will be presented to the audience. Her films are full of gorgeous 8mm or 16mm film clips, intimate quotes and commentary that make up her world. Eva is a documentary filmmaker, visual artist and poet who has exhibited at the Documenta 14th and at the 2019 Venice Biennale. Her film Manuscript (2017), which will also be screened, received major awards at the 2018 Oberhausen International Competition.
The Films Like No Other program is supported by the Cultural Center of the Municipality of Bol, China Mediterranean, HAVC and the Ministry of Culture, and all screenings and accompanying programs are free of charge.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!
BY AIR ///
Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent.
