10 YEARS OF KURJA POLT
From March 28th at Kinodvor Gallery
Kurja Polt Genre Film Festival celebrates and screens those wonderfully bizarre, daring and wild works of cinema that proudly wave the banners of cult, genre, exploitation, B movie, camp, paracinema and the likes. Some are film orphans and bastards without a pedigree, others the suppressed, banned or overlooked works by the great auteurs. Together they form a cinematic subculture with its own creed, style, membership and its eternal place on the margins of film canon, from where they rage against the conventionality and conformism of mainstream culture, against the social, political and cinematic status quo.
With the 10 Years of Kurja Polt photo exhibition we take a stroll down memory lane, remembering our beginnings and the first decade of festival editions, our guests and our audience, our workshops, lectures, roundtables and Q&As, all the serious talks and the merrymaking.
Our photographers: Domen Pal (below), Katja Goljat, Matjaž Rušt, Nada Žgank. Dramaturgy and design: Metka Dariš. Print and preparation: Boštjan Sikošek (Siar). Installation: Mateja Babnik.
