    BRATISLAVA: The 7th Slovak Film Week, the annual showcase of domestic film production, will take place in Bratislava from 29 November to 5 December 2021. The main programme will screen 25 Slovak films - nine features, 11 documentaries and 5 shorts - which had their releases in 2020.

    Due to the pandemic, it will be held for the second time in the autumn instead of the original spring date. Unlike last year's online edition, if the situation does not change, Slovak Film Week will take place live at the Lumiere cinema.

    Slovak Film Week is also an important platform for critical public discussions and reflection on Slovak film production. Awards for film science and criticism will be presented at the opening ceremony.

    The number of Slovak feature films decreased by 53% in 2020, because of 20 premieres rescheduled for 2021. The National Sun in the Net Awards were not awarded this year because of the low number of premieres, which was also the reason why the organisers have decided to announce the Slovak Film Week Audience Award this year.

    The Slovak Film Week is organised by the Slovak Film Institute and supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic.
