VISITORS to three international festivals will be able to see Slovakia 2.0, a 2014 film capturing twenty years of independent Slovakia through the eyes of 10 various directors, during October and November. Moreover, the film will be screened during two film markets abroad, the TASR newswire reported.

The first screening will take place on October 11 at Warsaw Film Festival. According to the film’s producers Zora Jaurová and Mátyás Prikle, this festival belongs in the A category, together with festivals in Cannes, Venice and Karlove Vary. It is visited by about 100,000 people annually.

“Moreover, Poland is very close to our affairs and film,” Jaurová and Prikler said, as quoted by TASR. “Warsaw is therefore a great platform for the festival start of Slovakia 2.0.”

The film will also appear at the only market of documentary films, East Silver Market that takes place alongside the International Festival of Documentary Films in the Czech town Jihlava. It offers about 300 films to producers and distributors from central and eastern Europe.

Instead of presentation of the whole film, one part of it, a short film directed by Peter Kerekes called Second Try, will compete for the Silver Eye Award, as reported by TASR.

Slovakia 2.0 will also appear at the IFF Molodist in Ukraine that takes place between October 25 and November 2, at Agora Film Market which is part of the IFF Thessaloniki in Greece held on November 1-8. Its autumn tour will end at the film festival in German Cottbus, TASR wrote.

Slovakia 2.0 is composed of ten 10-minute films of different genres ranging from drama, through animation and documentaries, to experimental film. The directors who offer an answer to what is Slovakia include a wide range of generations, views and genres, namely Juraj Herz, Martin Šulík, Peter Kerekes, Zuzana Liová, Mišo Suchý, Ondrej Rudavský, Iveta Grófová, Peter Krištúfek, Viera Čákanyová, and Miro Jelok, according to the official website.

It premiered in Slovakia in April 2014.
