New film festival

The spa town of Piešťany will host the first year of the Cinematik International Film Festival between September 13-17. This new event aims to fill in certain gaps left by the film festivals already being offered in Slovakia and Central Europe. It is clearly oriented toward young filmgoers and emphasizes improving their "film literacy."
