Organised by Zagreb Film Festival, which was trusted with the cinema management in 2008, next to the regular annual cinema program (which every year, in association with other local distributers, includes around 80 select film titles), the following programs and activities are implemented and organised:
- Zagreb Film Festival
For more than a decade one of the most important Croatian film festivals shows its audience the latest and most interesting titles of debut creative cinema. It takes place every year at several locations around Zagreb (Europa and Tuškanac cinemas, Zagreb Dance Centre, Dokukino, Museum of Contemporary Art, Academy of Dramatic Art etc.). The Europa cinema screens the main competition and film screenings for children – Bib for Kids.
- Film distribution
Zagreb Film Festival is also one of the leading distributers of top-rated independent European and world cinema in Croatia. Throughout the year it regularly releases around 10 select film titles.
- KinoKino - International Film Festival for Children
The organisational and creative team of Zagreb Film Festival has launched the making of an International Film Festival for Children – KinoKino. KinoKino Festival’s premiere edition was in March 2016. The film program comprise around 30 international fiction films for children up to the age of 14, including recent features and shorts, and several special programs including also film classics for children.
- Bib for Kids Cinema
This film program is intended for children and young people, including regular and free screenings throughout the entire year at the Cinema Europa. It sprang from Zagreb Film Festival’s very popular namesake category which has for years been presenting the youngest audience with recent European and global independent film titles.
Month after month, Kinolektira has been bringing timeless jewels from the anthologies of cinema to Europa Cinema's silver screen, the films you saw many years or even decades ago, the films that followed you in life and you keep coming back to, and perhaps even the films you never saw before (but are embarrassed to admit).
- Matinees for senior citizens
This regular film program is intended for senior citizens, organised in association with the Third Age University.
- Subtitled Tuesdays
A screening program with bilingual (Croatian and English) subtitles is a response to the growing needs of the increasing foreign audience. Every Tuesday (unless the film is already in English) one of the regularly listed films is screened with English subtitles, along the Croatian ones.
Every year this program features one carefully chosen cult silent film, screened with Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra’s musical accompaniment. So far the Phil(m)harmonics screened the following classic movies 'Nosferatu' by F.W. Murnau, 'Battleship Potemkin' by S. Eisenstein, 'The General' by B. Keaton, 'The Kid' and 'Circus' by C. Chaplin) at a total of 35 screenings seen by over 10 thousand people! We have also screened two short comedies from the beginning of the great Charlie Chaplin's career - 'A Dog's Life' and 'The Idle Class'.
- Venice in Zagreb
In association with the Italian Institute of Culture in Zagreb and Venice Film Festival (the Mostra), every year the Cinema Europa presents a selection of films from one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world – the Italian Mostra!
- Czech Film Week
One of the most popular film programmes at the Cinema Europa, every year featuring carefully chosen contemporary Czech hit movies!
- In case you missed
Summer film program is making it possible for the Zagreb audience to see the titles they missed in the previous season or simply check out their favourite movie once again.
