Febiofest film festival

THE 10TH annual festival of film, television, and video film, Febiofest, will take place from February 10 to 28 in Bratislava and other cities around the country.

The selection for English-speaking audiences is divided into two sections. The first one, Nordic cinema: Norway and Iceland shows six feature films, including Kirstin Lavransdatter directed by Liv Ulmann and one of Norway's all-time most successful comedies, Elling.

The festival will run in Bratislava from February 10 to 17 at film clubs and cinemas across the city.
