Slovenian Films in Cannes 2013

13. May 2013
From 15 to 26 May the 66th International Film Festival is taking place in Cannes. During the festival the film market, where the Slovenian Film Centre is to represent Slovenia for the tenth year in a row, is also taking place for the 54th year.

This year the Slovenian cinematography will be presented for the fourth time in the International Village in the South-East European Pavilion together with film institutions and filmmakers from Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia.
The Slovenian part of the new pavilion will once again be the meeting point for all Slovenian filmmakers, coming to Cannes to present their already completed projects, seeking partners for their projects in development, and establishing all kinds of business contacts in the field of film.

At this largest global film market the Slovenian Film Centre is showing three world premieres: Dual, the second feature by the director Nejc Gazvoda, produced by Perfo; Chefurs Raus!, the second feature by the director Goran Vojnović, produced by Arsmedia; and Class Enemy, the first feature by Rok Biček, produced by Triglav film. The screenings at the Cannes market represent an essential foundation for as successful an international festival premiere of all three films as possible.

Short Film Corner is a professional short film platform where the authors have the opportunity to present their films to the widest possible global audience, interested in the world shorts and their makers. This year Slovenia will be represented by the short films Hudred Dogs by the director Jan Cvitkovič, produced by Staragara; and Morning by the director Sonja Prosenc, produced by Mono o.

On Saturday, 18 May, the Grossman Fantastic Film and Wine Festival from Ljutomer will be presented in the pavilion, marking the Slovenian day. This time the event will also be a presentation of the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation.
