Ljubljana International Film Festival

A program of Slovenian shorts created this year invites the audience on a journey through a diverse tapestry of contemporary Slovenian cinema. From hybrid documentaries dealing with intimate yet collective topics, or an homage to the avant-garde and experimental approaches, to a captivating fictional story about quirky relationships, and an animation portraying epic folk tales, this selection highlights the diverse genres and distinct authorial poetics of Slovenian filmmakers. Five shorts offer a glimpse into the different creative dynamics, providing a window into unique stories, styles, and perspectives that define the vibrant landscape of Slovenian filmmaking in 2023.
