Ljubljana Film Festival
LIFFe or, to give it its proper name, the Ljubljana International Film Festival, is now in its 20th year. The dates for this year’s festival are from 11th to 22nd November 2009. The Festival was launched to compensate for the lack of top-quality home produced films. According to its website, the festival aims sets out to do a number of things including: the provision of an overview of selected, contemporary, world film production; keep Slovenes abreast of which films won awards at important European or World festivals; educate through film workshops, exhibitions and multi-media interactive projects; present “so-called generational films lacking great artistic ambitions but successfully expressing their zeitgeist” and to generate dialogue about both radical and popular movies. The Festival website has an English translation and it provides a great retrospective on the 2008 Festival.
