Split Nomad Gallery in collaboration with the Mediterranean Film Festival Split presented the 2nd edition of NoMAD MOVIE ART – Film classics through the eyes of Croatian authors.
8 renowned authors were gathered from all over Croatia to interpret newly chosen film classics through their medium, from their own personal and unique perspective. Authors were given complete design freedom in creating new and original visuals of well-known classics. The movie poster successfully resists the test of time, maintaining its cult value by combining film and fine art for audiences of all generations. In this extraordinary presentation of cinematic classics, the artists skillfully blend elements of film, graphic design, illustration, typography, and photography. Each poster carries the personal and distinctive signature of its creator, preserving the essence of the original films while infusing them with new life and perspective. The result is eight new movie posters that have withstood the test of time, retaining their cult value.
It is our great pleasure to finally present you this year’s authors and their artworks:
- Il Postino – Franka Tretinjak

The goal of the project is, as always, to encourage and support artistic collaboration, production and audience engagement. Just like previous year, the background of film classics is always current and in its own way reaches different audiences, ensures cultural diversity and encourages dialogue.
