Following a four months process from the first rehearsal to the opening night, as well as the intimate lives of the artists, the film tells a universal story of the relationships between the real world and the imagination, between the intimacy and the public aspects of art.
“The film tries to determine how much of what we tell is exhibitionism, and how much of it is a sincere and sometimes painful self-confrontation,” directors Rajko Grlić and Matjaž Ivanišin told FNE.
Every Good Story Is a Love Story / Vsaka dobra zgodba je ljubezenska zgodba was produced by Danijel Hočevar through Vertigo, in coproduction with NP7 and in collaboration with NuFrame and 100, with a budget of 80,166 EUR. “Vertigo contributes 90 % and NP7 10 % of the total budget,” producer Danijel Hočevar told FNE. The project received 55,000 EUR in support from the Slovenian Film Center.
The film was shot at the SNG Drama Ljubljana Theatre, when the actual play was produced. Shooting took place in spring and autumn 2013.
The film is scheduled for an art house cinema release in autumn/winter 2017.
