The first feature film by young director Iveta Grófová, Made in Ash (Až do mesta Aš) is harvesting positive reviews from international critics as well as festival awards. At the IFF Bratislava it won Unicredit Bank Award for the best Slovak picture that comes with a financial bonus of €3,000.
Time flies for all but for few it flies as fast as for those who like to spend it in the twilight of cinema theatres and for whom the projection lamp is all the sun they need. It seems as if we said “Hi!” only yesterday and time to say “Good-bye!” is almost here. But before it comes, be sure you make all the right moves and pick all the right movies today because final impressions from this year’s festival are very likely to stay with you for the whole year until we meet again at the Bratislava International Film Festival’s 15th edition next November.
Jan Ole Gerster’s debut feature film, Oh Boy, won three awards at the IFF Bratislava: Best Director Award, FIPRESCI Award and FEDEORA Award.
