📍 FESTIVAL VENUES:
Mladost Cinema, Lumiere Cinema, Slovak National Gallery, KLAP Cinema (FTF VŠMU), Jurkovičova Tepláreň
🇮🇸 Be among the first viewers to see the Icelandic-Slovenian drama Solitude.
This visually captivating drama tells the story of a farmer who has lived his entire life in the peaceful Icelandic countryside and is forced by the state to sell his house. The man leaves his home and moves to the capital, where he soon makes the acquaintance of a 10-year-old boy who delivers newspapers in the neighbourhood. A friendship is born that profoundly affects both the man and the boy.
✍️ The film’s screenwriter, Rúnar Rúnarsson, will be attending the festival in person and you can also look forward to his masterclass at the Visegrad Film Forum!
🎥 Behind the camera is Dušan Husár, who has received 3 nominations for the Czech Lion in the cinematography category in the last 2 years.
2. The Zone of Interest
5 Oscar nominations and 2 awards from Cannes. ZONE OF INTEREST is the next film to be screened at the 31st FEBIOFEST Bratislava!
Rudolf, Hedwig and their four children live in a large house with a beautiful, well-kept garden. Every day they celebrate dinner together, enjoy weekend trips to the water and walks with friends. However, from outside the walls of their home come disturbing noises and the occasional desperate scream. Rudolf Höss is the commander of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
👩🏻🦰 The award-winning actress Sandra Hüller can also be seen in the film. You may know Sandra from Anatomy of a Fall, for example, for which she won the European Film Award and also received an Oscar nomination.
🎟️ Jonathan Glazer’s chilling film will have its Slovak premiere.
3. Dream Scenario
A thoroughly entertaining social satire about a man who suddenly starts appearing in people’s dreams all over the world. That’s what the film “Dream Scenario” is about.
Overnight, an unassuming college professor named Paul (Nicolas Cage) begins appearing in the dreams of millions of people around the world, becoming a global celebrity. Suddenly, all his wishes begin to come true, but he also learns just how high the price of fame is.
🌟 The film from A24 production, directed by Kristoffer Borgli, whom Slovak audiences know mainly thanks to the film I’M SICK OF MYSELF, will have its Slovak premiere in March at the 31st edition of our festival.
