Dear colleagues and friends, we are glad to announce that the 26th edition of International Film Clubs Festival Febiofest (March 20 – 26, 2019) is approaching! The festival is proud to announce a newly launched partnership with educational platform Visegrad Film Forum (March 19 – 23, 2019).
International Film Clubs Festival Febiofest was founded in 1993 and its mission is not only to bring a wide range of contemporary, as well as archive national and foreign films to Slovak audiences, but also to support their distribution, development and production. The main part of the festival takes place in Bratislava and a selection of films is subsequently screened in other cities across Slovakia, creating an alternative distribution channel.
For the seventh time now, the festival will hold a competition of short films from the V4 countries. In The Heart of Europe will introduce a selection of the most interesting fiction, documentary, animated and experimental short films from Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, along with our close neighbour Austria.
The theme of this year is EVIL in film.
For the 4th time his year, the festival continues to open up to international industry guests and apart from presenting films of key auteur directors, it provides an important platform for Slovak film professionals, including the young upcoming generation, to network and talk about their film projects. 4th Industry Days at Febiofest will take place March 25 – 26, 2019 and will include a presentation of upcoming Slovak films, a showcase of educational platforms for filmmakers and their impact on quality film projects, as well as further master classes and discussion panels.
More info on the industry programme will follow soon.
