about festival

Theatre, film, discussions, art exhibitions, human library and other events can be enjoyed at the fourth edition of EMBARGO I METROPOLIS festival 2017. This year's topic is migration and urban integration, which runs parallel to the project activities of Promised Lands - Metropolis supported by the Creative Europe program of the EU.

The mission of a week-long festival is to create conditions for intercultural dialogue, local community development, fight against stereotypes, prejudice and misconceptions about certain people - both local and remote. The festival is also concerned about the topic of propaganda and representation of reality in media. It is a lighthouse on an island of positive deviation, which is trying to navigate the society towards solidarity, understanding among cultures and global education.
