FOR THE FIRST time in its history, Slovakia will be represented at the Cannes Film Festival at a joint pavilion of three states: Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Poland.
The Slovak mission is organised and financed by the Slovak Association of Producers and Audio-visuals (SAPA) in cooperation with the Slovak Film Institute and the Culture Ministry. According to SAPA's chairman, Marián Urban, the aim of the Slovak representation is to "introduce Slovakia as a country with continuity in cultural cinema and to stress its possibilities as an ideal space for filmmaking".
The booth offers information on Slovak films and screenings of them in several foreign language versions in the VHS and DVD formats.
