Kinečko staff recommends / 15 November


We’re slowly nearing the end of the festival and Kinečko has some recommendations for today’s screenings. This time we’re leaving Bratislava and expanding to the nearby cities.



Eva Križková: Sami Blood, Kino Záhoran – Malacky, 7 p.m.


This incredibly mature debut of the young Swedish director Amanda Kernell shocks by pointing at how many different faces of racism there are. In one of her interviews, the director said one of the main reasons why she’s making films is to feel less lonely. This formally chilling drama is a great example of how a film can assist at opening various personal, family as well as social taboos and thus become a tool for real and liberating communication. The fourteen year-old Sami girl Elle Marja is far from being the only one afraid to admit who she really is…





Saša Gabrižová: My Life as a Courgette, Kino Záhoran – Malacky, 10 p.m., Kino Mier – Senec, 5 p.m.


Animated films like My Life as a Courgette are very important as they fight against stereotypes, prejudices or speak about such topics as death, family break-ups and loneliness, in children’s films for (not so) obvious reasons often marginalised. There’s no need to point out that Courgette is a film for children and adults alike. The story with no additional sentiment done with stop-motion animation features vivid characters and boasts a beautiful handwriting. The film was nominated for last year’s LUX Prize, awarded annually by the European Parliament.




Made In CZ/SK is one of Bratislava IFF loadbearing sections. In connection with the recent one-hundredth anniversary of the formation of the First Czechoslovak Republic, the section reflects a continuous and successful filmmaking cooperation of the two neighbouring countries. This year’s selection will present several recent films, some of which also originated in Czech-Slovak co-production.

The 20th edition of the Bratislava International Film Festival will open its doors in less than one month. The days between 29 November and 2 December 2018 will offer a generous selection of quality titles made by the best of young contemporary cinema. The Bratislava city cinemas Lumière and Mladosť will welcome the audience with a pleasant atmosphere and bring innovative perspectives on the world and being in it.

Another section of the Bratislava IFF programme will comprise three films nominated for the LUX Prize 2018, which has been awarded by the European Parliament since 2007. Its goal is to popularize original European film production and incite the EU citizens to discuss European values and identity. After last year’s success the festival will present LUX Prize films not only in Bratislava, but in three cinemas outside of the capital as well; Kino Mier in Modra, Kino Záhoran in Malacky and Artkino Metro in Trenčín. 


On Tuesday 14th November in kino Lumière were announced the winners of 19th Bratislava IFF. Festival continues in kino Mladost, MIER in Modra, Mier in Senec and Zahoran in Malacky. 



The White World According to Daliborek (2017) and its main protagonist – a “gentle neo-Nazi” have prompted a controversial reaction in the Czech Republic. Klusák came across Dalibor on the Internet.
