FESTIVALS: Art Film Fest Relocates to Košice

Written by

BRATISLAVA: Art Film Fest, the oldest film festival in Slovakia, will hold its 24th edition in the city of Košice from 17-25 June 2016.

One of the main reasons of relocating the festival from Trenčianske Teplice and Trenčín to Košice is the fact that the city has social infrastructure and seven projecting centres with a capacity of 20,000 seats.

Milan Lasica is still the president of the festival and Peter Nágel is the artistic director. Film producer Rudolf Biermann has become general manager and with Jan Kováčik they are producers of the festival.

“Over more than 20 years of its existence, the festival has built up an international network of contacts and has proven that it is capable of inviting and hosting significant figures of the worldˈs cinematography”, Peter Nágel said at a press conference in December 2015.
