Oktavijan Miletić holds an important place in the history of Yugoslav amateur cinema. As a pioneering figure within the amateur film scene, Miletić not only helped to found a ciné-section inside the Zagreb Photo Club as early as 1928, but also directed a majority of the films produced during the first couple of years of its existence, before eventually steering the section towards reincarnation as the autonomous Zagreb Ciné-amateur Club in 1935, and eventually the Zagreb Ciné-club of 1953. Described as ‘the first Yugoslav filmmaker to reach the highest creative levels of international cinema… and the first whose films were screened and awarded prizes throughout Europe,’ Much of the work might now be described in terms of genre ‘hybridity’ and is marked by a distinct sense of cinematic pastiche. This chapter will introduce a generic reading of Miletić’s diverse amateur film works, while at the same time tracing his early activities within Yugoslavian ciné-club culture.
