About festival


Dear friends of KGIFF


In creating a second edition of Kranjska Gora Internationač Film Festival we again encountered a lot of work. In the sails of our project, we had to catch the wind that will take our festival on a journey to distant places, across oceans of imagination, all the way to movie heroes, to places only the boldest dare to sail! I would especially like to thank everyone, who was that wind, may it be helping financially, with your products, services or in any other form. You remain heroes in these difficult times, believing and supporting immaterial goods. Which our film festival undoubtedly is. Second edition of KGIFF evolved all year, while visiting film festivals – in Sarajevo, Berlin, Cannes, Bologna and Karlovy Vary – while having friendly conversations and with a two-day workshop, where the festival team was being shaped. All this led to yet another edition of the film festival in Kranjska Gora, which this year brings some upgrades. The first of which is expansion of locations; we moved some screenings out of Kranjska Gora, in Bled, Mojstrana and Rateče. Screenings will also take place in Kranjska Gora elderly home and in many other venues where we were kindly welcomed. Through this decision, our festival gained a lot and moved closer to the audience. Compared to last year's festival, we improved the programme and accompanying content and expanded it into new spatial dimensions. We gave our best to present you with an attractive programme, interviews with authors, round tables, thematic parties and workshops, designed both for children and adults, beginners and professionals, & for those who wants to take a peek into the behind the scenes of creative movie making. We wish to offer you a festival that will satisfy even the most demanding viewer & participant. We know why movies attract big crowds. Because it combines in itself all forms of art, and this is the reason why it always withdraws from the templates, from the captivity of zeitgeist and brings people together on a path to a common goal. This is our festival, the festival that gives us joy and that we are proud of! So, do not think twice, come and enjoy excellent works by authors from around the world, from nineteen countries to be precise! This year's edition of film festival we dedicate to the queen of hearts – to a local lady Marica Globočnik, who had so much cheerfulness and vast wisdom, that left a special seal in the village which exceeds her life expectancy. She left us at her almost 100 years of age. Her enthusiasm, her energy and her deep belonging to the village and its people were all dedicated to love, coexistence and respect for tradition. Like hers, our efforts are focused on you, dear viewers, to take Kranjska Gora International Film Festival for your own and follow it on its life course. I would like to express gratitude to all who support us, who follow us and are willing to share with us suggestions on how to make festival better and how to bring it even closer to the audience. I would also like to thank all our friends from Kranjska Gora, whether they are part of the municipal administration, Kranjska Gora Tourism board or they are just passers-by, who, while stopping us on the street, give us a word of encouragement, a friendly smile or a strong handshake. Thanks for making us realise that friendship is the greatest art of them all. Let’s enjoy it together. Marica would certainly want that!

Thursday, 27. 7. - CHILDREN'S PROGRAMME

KGIFF are devoting this year’s edition of "Domačica" to Marica Globočnik, known fondly as aunt Pehta from ranjka Gora, who said goodbye last year at the great age of 99.

After the screenings, in a park nearby hotel Lek, we will plant a lime tree from the Festival in honour of Marica.

Synopsis: Two "dumb-bells", Hugo and Tincek, steal a camera from a lunatic asylum and escape. They want to make a film about a hero, who saves a girl and gives her a kiss at the end. Hugo shoots the film and Tincek plays the main character. They are making the film by shooting "ordinary" people, without them knowing what is really going on. This leads them to prostitute Magdalena, who wants to commit suicide. Everything would work out just fine if Magdalena's pimp Zare didn't get involved


The purpose of our socially engaged film programme, taking place on 1st and 2nd August, is to present to the festival audience with movies which break the walls of the system and broaden horizons. Movies, so to speak, that open eyes. Some of them show examples of social resistance from different parts of the world, while others break boundaries to enter the sphere of activism. With movies, public speeches and round table discussions, we will search for answers to the question 'What really is a socially engaged movie?' and 'Can a movie by itself be a force of activism and a fight for a cause?'.


Nowadays, the world is constantly being shaken by social conflicts and unrest that often turn into revolution, and then to wars. Teeming masses shout same slogans (albeit in different languages) against exploitation and repression of human beings, carried out by national authorities, frequently linked to international institutions and the elite. On the first day we will screen movies prioritising social struggles in the occupied lands of Western Sahara, in Taiwan, Spain and also in Slovenia. A round table will follow the last movie, so the audience can reflect on the differing practices of mass protests and their effectiveness, both globally and at home.

Synopsis: Twice the people went into the streets. Twice the police drove them away. What began as protests became uprisings. In the once-prosperous industrial city of Maribor, Slovenia, anger over political corruption became unruly revolt. This participatory documentary places audiences in the midst of the third and largest uprising as crowds surround and ransack City Hall under a hailstorm of tear gas canisters. Like those who joined the actual uprisings, audiences in the theater must decide whether to listen to organizers and remain with those committed to nonviolent protest on Freedom Square or to follow rowdy crowds toward City Hall and almost certain conflict.


Engaged movies are a kind of mirror to society: they have the power to actively critiquing society and activism itself, or give a valuable message. They open thematic spheres, repressed systematically by the ruling forces. If the pen is mightier than a sword, then the camera is more powerful than guns. We will screen movies which focus not only on disclosed and oppressed truth but also try to awaken the collective conscience.

Accompanying new interviews of the remaining Beatles, their associates and fans as well as archival interviews of the late ones, this film features footage of the heady concert years of 1963 to 66 when the band became a worldwide cultural phenomena topping them all. Furthermore, it also follows how the Fab Four began to change and grow while the excitement of Beatlemania began to sour their lives into an intolerable slog they needed to escape from to become more than what their fans wanted.

In ‘Blue Velvet Revisited’, the film images, numerous sound recordings, photographs, paintings, objects and relics that Braatz had collected are selected and composed into an evocative new film, based on a story told by the Director without the need for narration. These lost and mostly never before seen images are revisited and reinterpreted now, 30 years later. ‘Blue Velvet Revisited’, an 85 minute long documentary, is a journey, sharing with the viewer some kind of buried treasure.

Life has not been kind in any way towards Dobrica. As an infant he was abandoned by his parents and left by the wayside. After a few happy years, spent surrounded by people who truly loved him, the “system” takes notice of him and the next twenty-eight years of his life are spent mostly in orphanages or in prison. Still, maybe simply because early in life he experienced truly unconditional love, or simply because it is his nature, he chooses only to see goodness in people. Actually, it’s not so much that he chooses it as that he simply can’t do it otherwise. He is who he is and navigates through life while being completely filled with love.
