Long term efforts of Cinefil o.z. are focused on returning the best of film to the city of Košice. The priority though is the re-opening of a good (art) cinema. We have a concrete cinema in mind – Kino Úsmev at Kasárenské námestie in Košice. In order to to get film out of the poor-neighbour position in relation to other artistic disciplines we have decided to prepare a new thing – filmmaker residency that will result in an original short film. We will borrow experiences from K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence, that works with residencies and their development for several years now. Independent film production is something that we miss in the city and it also is something that puts stress on the fact that (quality) production needs a space for exhibition.
