Made in Slovakia Special – Tribute

In 2009, the International Film Festival Bratislava along with the Bratislava City Hall established a tradition aimed at honouring the outstanding Slovak film and theatre artists, authors, and film professionals for their lifetime artistic achievement.


The list of legendary Slovak actors currently featuring Ladislav Chudík, Mária Kráľovičová, Jozef Adamovič, Štefan Kvietik, Eva Krížiková and Ivan Palúch, whose memorial tiles already decorate the Film Walk of Fame, will include a new entry this year – namely that of Emília Vášáryová, an exceptional artist and the first lady of Slovak cinema and theatre.


This year’s award laureate and holder of the memorial tile on the Film Walk of Fame will be officially announced during the gala evening of the 17th Bratislava IFF. As part of the gala evening, Bratislava IFF will proudly present Copper Tower (Medená veža), a legendary 1970 film by director Martin Hollý, Jr.


The unveiling of the memorial tile on the Film Walk of Fame in front of the P. O. Hviezdoslav Theatre in Bratislava will take place next June, during the opening ceremony of the 41st multi-genre city summer festival Cultural Summer and Castle Festival Bratislava 2016.
