Slovak films shown in Netherlands

THE WEEK of Slovak Film in Amsterdam, organised by the Slovak Film Institute, will run two more days - until November 12. The festival is scheduled to show 12 feature films made by renowned filmmakers and a ten-film block of student works.

According to the programme officer, Ľudmila Cviková, the event is aimed at introducing Slovak cinema to the Dutch audience in greater depth.

"The Dutch viewer has had the opportunity to get to know the Czechoslovak new wave but not Slovak cinema," she said. "The selected films draw attention to the cultural heritage of Slovak film, which had been shared with Czech film until 1992."
