Film Magistery

Film Magistery is a podcast about films and a theme/concept they might contain. The host Dino Avdibegovic (that’s me!) wants to explore films that belong to a deeper cinematic experience than the average film that is normally accessible to viewers. His intention in every episode is to talk about a single theme or concept that is related to the work. As an example, The Lives of Others (2006) is dealing with the theme ‘surveillance’ and which implications it has on our society.

From time to time, there will be a personal relation to the treated theme, and that’s what great films should be able to do – make a connection to its viewers on any level. You can expect to stumble upon films made by Tarkovsky, Kubrick, Allen, Malick, Altman, Coen, Kiarostami, but there should be space for the mainstream cinema from time to time, too.

You can watch it on YouTube in the form of a film essay or you can subscribe to the audio podcast, please visit Google Podcasts, Listen Notes or your favorite podcast place. The podcast is free, as in beer and freedom, but you are welcome to contribute to the project or donate a lunch. 🙂
