Prihaja 3. KGIFF!

26. 7. – 4. 8.

Kranjska Gora bo letošnje poletje spet v znamenju domače in svetovne filmske produkcije; od 26. julija do 4. avgusta se bo v tej alpski vasici odvrtel že tretji Mednarodni filmfest Kranjska Gora-KGIFF. Ta prinaša najnovejše zgodbe iz sveta dokumentarnih in igranih filmov ter vabi na ustvarjalno druženje v objemu slikovite narave. Filmsko dogajanje bo spremljal pester izobraževalni program, ki ga bodo sestavljale raznolike delavnice in enodnevna predavanja številnih mednarodno uveljavljenih mentorjev s področja filmske režije, scenaristike, castinga, ter filmske fotografije in produkcije. Tokratni festival posvečamo Boštjanu Hladniku, pionirju slovenskega modernističnega filma, ki je s svojim dolgoletnim ustvarjanjem pomembno zaznamoval slovenski filmski prostor, poseben pečat pa je pustil tudi na Kranjski Gori, ki jo je s svojimi prvimi filmskimi uspešnicami čudovito ujel v objektiv.

Še posebej toplo vas vabimo na uradno odprtje festivala 1. avgusta na jezero Jasna. Festival bomo sklenili z zaključno podelitvijo nagrad 4. avgusta v Podkorenu, vse festivalske dni pa nam bo poleg pestre filmske in izobraževalne ponudbe krajšal tudi raznolik glasbeni program.

Filmsko umetnost, ki je skupek vseh sedmih vej umetnosti, želimo približati tako najmlajšim kot tistim v zrelih letih. Naš namen je skozi dobre zgodbe navdihovati, presenečati in razvajati spoštovano občinstvo, ter vzpostaviti dialog med filmskimi ustvarjalci in gledalci. Naša prizadevanja gredo v smeri čim boljšega informiranja in učenja publike saj smo prepričani, da preko umetnosti gradimo lepši svet.

Ko vstopimo v kinodvorano, se zgodi nekaj čarobnega. Luči se ugasnejo in zunanji svet izgine v pozabo. Vsaj za nekaj časa, vse dokler nas film spet ne spomni nanj. In takrat ga vidimo z drugimi očmi. Pa naj bo skozi oči filmskih ustvarjalk in ustvarjalcev, ki svoje ideje in videnja izražajo s pomočjo kamere, ali pa skozi oči protagonistk in protagonistov, ki nam dovolijo, da se približamo njihovim intimnim svetovom. Nekaj zagotovo drži. Tam smo, da se učimo. Da se učimo o drugačnih svetovih in o življenjih, kakršnih sami nismo ali ne bomo nikoli živeli. Da razumemo in ne obsojamo in predvsem, da iz dvorane pridemo bolj razumevajoči. Prav to želimo doseči z Mednarodnim filmskim festivalom Kranjska Gora. Preko filma pripeljati svetove k ljudem in jih narediti bolj razumevajoče.

Something magical happens as we enter the cinema hall. The lights go out and the outside world disappears into oblivion. At least for a while, until the movie reminds us of it again. And so we start to see the world with different prospective. Let it be through the eyes of filmmakers, who express their ideas with the help of a tool – camera, or through the eyes of protagonists, who allow us to come closer into their intimate worlds. Yet something is certain. We are in a cinema hall to learn. To learn about different worlds and lives we never lived and never will live. To understand and to stop judging. And above all, to become more tolerant. This is the reason Kranjska Gora International Film Festival is here for.
