Slovak films at Bratislava IFF 2017
International Film Festival Bratislava (Nov 9 – 16, 2017) will again present a wide range of Slovak Films. Traditional section Made in Slovakia brings contemporary Slovak cinema to an international audience.
The full-length part of the section consists of two co-production feature films: The White World According to Daliborek (d. Vít Klusák) and Garden Store: Suitor (d. Jan Hřebejk). Third one is the medium-length documentary Varga (d. Soňa Maletzová), which portrays the life of musician Marián Varga through archive images of his musical performances.
