Cinema-Club “Biokovo” was founded in 1975 by Vinko Garmaz, a professor of Technical culture at OŠ “Vid Mihaljević” in Makarska, Croatia.

CC “Biokovo” actively participated in the work and projects of Croatian Cinema Association (later Croatian Film Association). Together with CCA and the Center for Culture of Makarska County they organized and hosted 22nd Croatian Children’s Film Festival (held 22nd – 24th June 1984 in Makarska).


The enthusiasm and dedication of professor Garmaz guided generations of young filmmakers through CC “Biokovo” and it became a shining example of exceptional children’s film education both in Croatia and former Yugoslavia.
