THE JURY SPEAKERS

Bratislava: Simona (14)

Hello, I am Simona Bartosova from Bratislava, Slovakia. I am 14 years old. I am in 8th class.

My hobbies are dancing, singing and drama. My favourite singer is Beyonce and my favourite films are HUNGER GAMES trilogy, DIVERGENCE trilogy and MAZE RUNNER.

I will be a jury speaker fot the second time this year.
Bratislava: Zdeno (14)
I am Zdeno Dobrota.

I lived most of my life in a small town called Vráble. I’ve always loved watching films. I remember when 3D first came into the cinema there. It was just with the red/blue glasses, but I was all hyped for it.

Now, after we moved to Bratislava, I go to the cinema every now and then, usually for some sci-fi or comedy, but the thing I love the most is playing in a theatre. I’ve been going to the art school since I was 5 or 6 years old. I’d love to be an actor in the future, but I also like working with computers, programming, etc.

Vitajte v Bratislave!

Bratislava is a small capital city in the heart of Europe. It is the largest city of Slovakia, occupying both banks of the Danube River and the left bank of the Morava River. The beautiful Danube, flowing from Germany to the Black Sea, divides city into two parts – the historic centre and Petržalka, the biggest housing estate in the whole of Slovakia. Bordering Austria and Hungary, it is the only national capital that borders two independent countries.

VISEGRAD FILM FORUM BRATISLAVA

Visegrad Film Forum (VFF) is a networking and educational platform for emerging film professionals, students with a major in film, media or audiovisual studies and (of course) film enthusiasts.

VFF's basic idea is to create a space for crossing the borders of the audio-visual area of the European countries. We are a platform for open dialogue and through dialogue - sharing and exchanging innovative experience - we aim to strengthen the co-operation among young film professionals.
