Kinoklub Zagreb is an amateur film society founded in Zagreb, Croatia in 1928. During the early 60's, it became a central place of the Yugoslav avant-garde film movement, marked by "anti-film" and Genre Film Festival (1963 to 1970), one of the first experimental film festivals in the world. Today, Kinoklub Zagreb still remains the biggest producer, distributor and archiver of Croatian independent short films, with special focus on alternative filmmaking.
