THE INTERNATIONAL Art Film festival, which annually takes place in Trenčianske Teplice, will also run in Bratislava. It will take place in Trenčianske Teplice in its traditional form between June 18 and 22. The best films of its 12th year will then be transferred to Bratislava cinemas and be screened from June 23 to 25.
The 75 participating movies will compete in three film competitions. Feature art films and fictive documentaries focussing on new techniques will compete in the main category, Art Fiction. The Artefacts section will screen short documentaries, experimental, and moving pictures, and students will compete in On a Road. Several informative sections, such as Brazilian productions, will accompany the festival.
The international jury will be compiled of French director of the international film festival Cinema du réel, Suzette Glenadel; Hungarian actress Dori Gryllus; Italian film scientist Gianfranco Angelucc; Czech director FA Brabec; and Slovak cameraman Laco Kraus.
The festival's most prestigious prize is the Actor's Mission Award. Among the awarded are such names as Franco Nero, Gina Lollobrigida, Geraldine Chaplin, Michele Placido, Sophia Loren, Catherine Deneuve, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Ornella Muti, and Klaus-Maria Brandauer.
