The Slovak Film and Television Academy (SFTA) debated over six Slovak productions, and coproductions with Slovak participation.
The film Kráľ zlodejov tells the story of a Ukrainian boy who is sold to a former circus artist by his parents, who dream of him having a successful circus career. The boy, though, becomes part of a crime network in which children are forced to steal. The film's Czech director, Ivan Fíla, was inspired by true stories of children forced into organized crime networks.
The Slovak premiere of the movie is expected to take place in the spring of 2004. A few exclusive screenings of the nominated film will run from September 18 to 24 at 15:30, and from September 19 to 20 at 21:30 at Bratislava's Mladosť cinema at Primaciálne Square. The film is in German and some Ukrainian, with Slovak subtitles.
