DUGA RESA - KARLOVAC

STUNT FESTIVAL

For the first time in Croatia, and beyond, this unique international Festival organized by Kino Edison will highlight the importance of the stunt profession in the film industry!

WARNING: All the stunts in the program are performed by professional stuntmen, so for safety reasons, do not try to perform any of the stunts on your own.

From action movies to comedies, but also in music videos, commercials and other audiovisual works, stuntmen are an indispensable part of the production.

The Festival will pay tribute to the quiet movie heroes who give life to action scenes and enable the audience to experience what it means to be a stuntsperson firsthand.

How to become a stunt performer, what types of stunts there are, what is most important in the stunt business and what big productions our stuntmen have participated in are just some of the topics that the Festival will be dedicated to.

Organized by Kino Edison.

The festival is intended for all film, sports and adrenaline lovers, representatives of related industries and everyone who wants to experience what it means to "put on stunt shoes".

The festival is an opportunity for all visitors to experience the stunt magic and feel the adrenaline in a safe way!
