On midsummer nights, film stars come to life in the courtyard of Ljubljana Castle.

A programme of this season’s best films has once again been put together by Kinodvor, in collaboration with the City of Ljubljana and Ljubljana Castle. This year, five films will have their first public screening in Slovenia in the Castle courtyard.

Films are screened in their original language with English subtitles. English spoken films are screened with Slovenian subtitles only.

In the event of rain or bad weather forecast, screenings are cancelled. There are no backup screenings at Kinodvor cinema this year due to hall renovation. In the case of Avant Premieres and the Special Screening, three additional screenings of each film will take place at Kinodvor between 1–5 August.

The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro, ZDA, 2017, 119'
cast: Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins

In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa is trapped in a life of isolation. But when she and her co-worker Zelda discover a secret classified experiment, Elisa’s life is changed forever. From master storyteller Guillermo del Toro comes an other-worldly fable, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America. Winner of the Golden Lion at last year’s Venice Film Festival, two Golden Globes and four Academy Awards, including Best Direction and Motion Picture. (English spoken)
