The Slovak summer festival known as 4 elements presented a selection of the Czech competition Other Visions CZ, which concerned the topic of youth. The block was introduced in Banská Štiavnica on Saturday, August 13 2016 by Marie Meixnerová.
4 elements is one of the oldest film events in Slovakia. The rich selection of films and the accompanying programme for the eighteenth year of this seminar took place from 10 to 14 August 2016. The event also offered a selection from the competition organised by PAF. The 90-minute block of videos dealing with the topic of youth was compiled by the main programme manager of PAF – Martin Mazanec.
In cooperation with PAF and Kinečko magazine, 4 elements participates in the first year of the Slovak version of Other Visions competition, Other Visions SK. As is the case with Other Visions CZ organized by PAF, the curator of the Slovak competition – this year it is the film historian and journalist Martin Kaňuch – nominates ten works of art. The winner will be announced at the 4 elements winter seminar in February.
