KINEČKO reflects cinema in the context of contemporary culture, and present to the public a profound analysis of filmmaking. Its purpose is to serve as a source of information and a platform for unofficial, yet well-founded debate between contemporary filmmakers and film critics, and for the presentation of film and film criticism abroad. It contains interviews and film reviews, as well as space for interviews with documentary filmmakers, dialogues between directors and producers, students and pedagogues, etc. Another contribution of KINEČKO is the fact that it releases DVDs with films that cannot be found in regular distribution.
