Art Film Fest is Slovakia’s oldest international film festival. Its first edition was held in June 1993, soon after the breakup of Czechoslovakia. Since then, the festival has become Slovakia’s most prestigious film event, with a lineup that includes the latest Slovakian films, along with competition films from Locarno, Venice, and Berlin.
