Description

Art Film Fest was established in 1993 as the first international film festival of its kind in Slovakia. During its history, the festival has undergone several reorganizations and has grown noticeably in size. The programme department today still clearly centres on non-commercial films which focus on developing ideas or exploring new narrative techniques or the outer limits of filmmaking conventions. Each year Art Film Fest presents films introduced at prestigious international film festivals such as Berlin, Cannes, Venice and Locarno. The centrepiece of the festival is the International Competition of Feature Films (films over 60 minutes in length) for a director’s first, second or third feature film. The International Competition of Short Films features short films (up to 30 minutes in length) of any genre (fiction, documentary, animated/cartoon, experimental film). The winning feature-length film and short film get the prestigious Blue Angel Award.
