The Network, made out exclusively of publicly owned and funded cinemas, will make sure that staff is educated and ready to begin screenings in the last quarter of 2023.

    “We are very excited and can’t wait to have the first film screening. Finally, with the new equipment we got, we will be able to have a film programme in our centre once again,” said Head of Cultural Centre Tomislavgrad Danijela Papić.
