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 subscribe and listen to the podcast on:

You can also watch it on and YouTube in the form of a film essay

The podcast is totally free, but if you like what I do, I'd be glad if you buy me a coffee:
