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 festival's main focus is the presentation of Czech cinematography to Slovak audiences, but it also features an international selection of movies with English subtitles.

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 second section, called HBO Presents, includes Cheryl Duyne's film Stranger Inside, Gathering Storm by Richard Loncraine, and the acclaimed movie Path to War by John Frankenheimer.

The festival will run in Bratislava from February 10 to 17 at film clubs and cinemas across the city. Other Slovak cities that will screen the festival's movies are Nitra, Žilina, Martin, Banská Bystrica, Poprad, Prešov, and Košice.
