croatia_ston_kinookusHere’s a film festival with a foodie core. The 4- 8 September 2014, KINOOKUS Food Film Festival (Kinookus FFF), held in Ston, Croatia, September 3 through 7, 2014, is an international festival that aims to promote and preserve the values of the Ston region, including bio-diversity and holistic ecology.

The Festival’s Velika Kamenica (large oyster) award is awarded for the best long feature film, and the Mala Kamenica (small oyster) award is presented for the best short feature film. The awards themselves are created every year by a different artist who is inspired by the materials, colors and shapes of the area.

Ston is centrally located in Dubrovnik-Neretva County and has been famous for its walls, saltpans and gastronomy. The area around Ston is renowned for the growing of shellfish, wines and olive oil.

Kinookus is a food film festival which, in exploring issues of industrial food production and its consequences for the planet, tells the story of ordinary men and women who engage their creativity and resourcefulness in trying to overcome the existing socio-economic model.

The Festival structure (Cinexperience – competition and retrospective, Cinefocus – lectures and meetings, Cinexperiment – educational workshops, Cinelocus – an open-air market for local, traditional and organic products, Unseen – agro-archaeological bike tours) strives to express all the abundance of the story of food as well as different aspects of its profound meaning for the life of mankind.
