Established in 2010 in Ljubljana, the EnaBanda Association (formerly known as Smehomat) is a non-profit organisation that engages mainly in film, video and social sphere research.

EnaBanda is a flexible platform consisting mostly of a younger generation of artists, activists and media freelancers with diverse professional backgrounds and experience.

Film production

EnaBanda produces documentary and fiction films and also regularly enters co-productions. Their documentary work tends to reflect important issues of the current social reality through stories of often marginalised individuals. EnaBanda's films tour international festivals.

EnaBanda contributes to the art of film-making and its community through several activities, most notably as the founder and leader of the screenwriting workshop Short Scene (Slo: Kratka scena) in partnership with the Society Kraken.


EnaBanda integrates cultural practices and social activism into artivism, i.e. engaged and critical art practices that open up or create a new space for interactions with people and environments. It produces public installations, ecology art projects and carries out research projects. The projects are well documented on the association website.

One of the earliest project was Marko Kumer's growing poetry: in the Robba Fountain next to Ljubljana Town Hall the verse of Slovene poet Dane Zajc Dež groze pada na moje oči ("The rain of terror is falling on my face") was grown.

The association was the co-producer of Maribor, European Capital of Culture 2012.

Stand-up comedy documentation

EnaBanda Association has produced two documentaries about the stand-up comedy: Leto [A Year], is an experimental work by Perica Jerković whose video diary outlines a brief history of stand-up comedy, while Romanian tempo documents the stand-up comedians Balkan journey.

Last but not the least: EnaBanda Association is an open platform for stand-up comedy authors Perica Jerković, Andrej Colarič - Cole, Klemen Bučan and Marko Kumer - Murč who were engaged as Komikaze group in the period 2007–2010.

EnaBanda has organised several stand-up comedy workshops for Bosnian immigrant community.
