FIPRESCI Association of Slovenian Film Critics round-table discussion: Cinema and film criticism in Slovenia

12. SEPTEMBER 2017, 16.30-18.00, GREEN HALL


Films made in Slovenia after the country gained its independence, as opposed to those produced earlier, have been marked by new constructions of nationality and the changing social realities of young generations, who take greater interest in issues related to gender and sexual identity. Increasing attention has been paid to short and independent films after they had traditionally been pushed to the margins of public discourse.
The round-table discussion will focus on how these developments in Slovenian cinema have been and are reflected in film criticism in Slovenia; as well as how film criticism is facing the systemic and financial issues that decide its future, including in relation to Slovenian film production.



Panellists: Peter Cerovšek, dr. Matic Majcen, dr. Maja Krajnc, Jasmina Šepetavc and Ana Šturm.
Moderated by: Tina Poglajen.
