Festival Focus: IFCF Febiofest

While Febiofest IFCF only starts in a month, we present our common curated program now already. In collaboration with the festival, we have selected films that were shown in the past year on the big screen in Bratislava. Watch them online and tune in to Febiofest!

Sergei Loznitsa, who regularly scores at film festivals with his films, focuses on the revolutionary days of 1991 in the Soviet Union in The Event. Slovak and Czech cinema is represented by films by renowned directors: Helena Třeštíková‘s Doomed Beauty about Lída Baarová, Jan Švankmajer’s latest film Insect made over the course of six years, and Miroslav Janek’s Normal Autistic Film about children with autism, which may be perceived as a special gift rather than a medical diagnosis.

In an online premiere, we present Válek by director Patrik Lančarič. Miroslav Válek was a poet whose sensitive and intimate work clashed with his political engagement in the communist party. How to approach this discrepancy, how to cope with it? Can one read poems while disregarding their author?

The Febiofest International Film Club Festival was founded in 1993 to present latest arthouse films from the local, European and international scene. The festival is organized by the Association of Slovak Film Clubs, one of Slovakia’s biggest distributors, and the Slovak Film Institute. The main part is held in Bratislava, followed by screenings in other Slovak cities. This year’s edition will be held on March 20 – 26 with the motto “Evil Cannot Hide in Film”.

Before this year’s edition of Febiofest IFCF kicks off in Bratislava, watch the prime films from last year’s program!
