Tips and tricks for the best ISFMF experience

International Sound & Film Music Festival is just about to start! We are thrilled to have such a large number of Industry guests coming to Samobor from all around the world: composers, directors, sound masters and producers. We hope you will enjoy the festival content and Samobor as well. Here are just a few useful tips to make your stay comfortable.


ISFMF programs will run in two cinema venues a short 10-15 minute walk from each other:

VENUE 1: Samobor Cinema (Address: Trg Matice Hrvatske 6)

In the same building as the main Samobor Cinema you will find the Prica Gallery.

VENUE 2: POP UP Cinema (Address: ulica 151. samoborske brigade HV 1)

We advise you to take your seats during the following screening slots: 10:55; 12:28; 13:28; 14:50; 16:00


Working Days and Times: 13 & 14 OCT from 9:00 – 13:00 o’clock

At the accreditation desk you collect your accreditation and festival kits, but also tickets for evening events/screenings. Some of you who are attending only the awards ceremony already received your tickets via email. Don’t forget to print them out and bring them with you!


If you need transfers, feel free to use Uber or taxi services (www.citytaxi.hr)


The official festival meeting points are:

  • Kavana Livadić (address: Trg kralja Tomislava 1)
  • Old Nick’s Pub (address: Ulica Mirka Kleščića 3), site of our big ISFMF party on Saturday 14th OCT, starting at 22:30. Don’t miss it!


Downtown Samobor has plenty of restaurants and places to eat with choices ranging from snacks and treats to full gastronomic experiences. Here are some of our top choices:

  • Pivnica/Restaurant Salvator (address: Šmidhenova 3)
  • Pizzeria Ara & Burger Bar (address: Trg Kralja Tomislava 9)
  • Petar Pan Fast Food (address: Mlinska ulica 7)
  • Restaurant Gabreku 1929 (address: Starogradska ul. 46).

Note: Some of the restaurants are closed on Mondays.


Sunny and warm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Some rain on Sunday so make sure you carry a small umbrella.


We recommend business casual for the awards ceremony, however if the spirit moves you, dress to impress like a red carpet pro!


Your Certificates of Nomination will be available to collect on Sunday morning at the Samobor Cinema from 9:30 – 12:30.
