Mosor Film Festival 2018
This year as part of Environmental Protection World Day and Day of Protection of the Mountain Nature of Republic of Croatia, The Croatian Mountaineering Society “Mosor” on Saturday 2nd of June, 2018 is organizing Mosor Film Festival (MosFF). The festival is dedicated for promoting the amateur mountaineering. During this year’s edition of MosFF you can watch movies of talented young authors from Croatia and abroad and enjoy the concert of an ethno band “Plet”.
The Mosor Film Festival is held in the very heart of the Dalmatian most visited mountain – Mosor, on the spacious meadow Ljuvač just below the “Umberto Girometta” mountain hut and Mosor’s mountains starry sky. This green oasis is an ideal place to relax especially during the hot summer months. It is located at an altitude of 850 m and is surrounded by lush Dalmatian pine woods. The stream Ljuvač runs through the meadows, which is fed with water from the same source, providing refreshment to numerous visitors.
The concert of band “Plet” will start around 19:30. Their members collect old traditional texts and records and turning them into a unique songbook. In this way, the forgotten phrases and texts get a new meaning and possibility to be revived in modern days.
If you come to Mosor (Sitno Gornje) by suburban bus no. 28, departure from Split (roundabout on Sukoišanska) is at 18:15, but in that case, you have to spend the night in Mosor because last ride from Sitno to Split is at 21:30. From the bus station in Sitno to Ljuvača and the Umberto Girometta mountain hut is an easy walk, and the trail is well marked.
In addition, a mountaineer’s home can accommodate you during the night so you do not have to worry about the late night bus shift from the mountain. Due to the limited capacity, a prior announcement is required at e-mail: email@example.com.
For those more adventurous spirits, they offer the possibility of overnight stays in tents on the meadow. Of course, you have to carry the tents with you and set them up for the foreseen places. During Saturday, you can take a look at the photo exhibition “Via Dinarica” devoted to the natural beauty of the Dinaric Mountains around Ljuvača.
The entrance to the festival is free for all those interested. Come and enjoy!
