They call themselves Zvěřinec (Menagerie) and all of them are natives to the Zlín region. This association of filmmakers, dramatists, scenographers, technicians, producers and musicians operates in the area of Zlín, and its goal is to open the region to artistic projects from outside and to support local culture. Since 2018, they have been organizing concerts, theatre performances, workshops, lectures and have thus been treating their Zlín-based audience to the contemporary cultural scene. Zvěřinec mostly works by organizing four regular events: the concert platform Zvěřinové nehody, the multi-genre open-air festival Slavnost v houští, the maker’s symposium Jizva and the PoSvícení – a festival of light and of the approaching winter solstice.
