Kinoklub Zagreb was founded back in 1928 as an association and it is one of the oldest amateur cinema clubs of SE Europe.

At the time, Kinoklub was a section of the Zagreb Photo Club and nowadays it functions as an independent association. The premises of the KKZ, i.e. cinema projection room, secretariat, editing room and storage for recording equipment, are located at The Victims of Fascism Square (Trg žrtava fašizma) on the ground floor of an impressive building with a dome and the seat of the Zagreb’s Technical Culture Association. Inside of the basement there is a charming café operating independently from the Association. It is one of the favourite haunts for youngsters attending nearby high schools on Križanićeva St.

The KKZ has a very rich and important history — suffice it to say that some of the pioneers and champions of Croatian and Yugoslav but also European experimental and avant-garde film, such as Maksimilijan Paspa, Tom Gotovac, Vladimir Petek, Mihovil Pansini and others had started their creative careers here. Today’s rather diverse KKZ programme is the result of work of seven different sectors: production, workshops, screenings, distribution, international cooperation and technical department.

The KKZ programme offers several free screenings, small panel discussion on weekly basis. On monthly and yearly basis, the KZZ also organizes a number of free of charge specific film workshops dedicated to various topics such as screenplays, short and documentary films, film critics, animation and other. Once a year, the so-called KZZ Auditorium provides screenings of all films produced within the club during that year. To get the KZZ membership, you need to complete the programme of one introductory film school after which it is possible to freely take part in all programmes organized by the Association. Kinoklub Zagreb is the most productive Croatian production house and one of the city’s liveliest cultural hotspots.

Atelier Ostrman

One of the more interesting locations in Lopašićeva Street is the art studio of the painter Tomislav Ostrman, Atelier Ostrman, where he exhibits and sells his own pieces and those of his colleagues and friends, alongside organizing small social events in this attractive workshop.

Garderoba Concept Store

With the opening of Ana Ivančić’s Garderoba, Zagreb got its first conceptual showroom for Scandinavian fashion. Garderoba is a carefully thought-out project, a room whose elements have all been designed by brilliant Croatian designers and architects, thus also adding a Croatian brand to the offer.

Slatka priča

The Slatka Priča pastry shop was started in 2013, and is currently in three places – Kranjčevićeva Street, Ivana Brlić Mažuranić Street in Zagreb’s Malešnica neighborhood, and, of course, Martićeva Street (since 2016), more precisely at the busy corner of Martićeva and Smičiklasova.

Mikrofon

Mikrofon is a music school started in 2009, located in the charming inner courtyard of 19 Martićeva Street. Its predecessor was the Vocal Studio Maraton vocal workshop from Rijeka, and the school has since then grown from offering single singing lessons to group singing and lessons for children, as well as instrumental music lessons.

Medveščak Library

The Medveščak Library, our neighborhood’s branch of Zagreb City Libraries, encompasses three departments – adult, children’s and youth (also known as “Idi pa Vidi”, or “Come and See”). Besides normal library duties, the library also engages in setting up various exhibitions in its windows, and workshops in the rooms of the youth and children’s departments.
