EVENTS THROUGHOUT SLOVENIA
Since the sold-out premiere, which took place on June 1st at the Kino Šiška in Ljubljana, the film has been screened at 63 events and gathered a total of 8,000 viewers. It has already visited 37 towns in Slovenia, and it has experienced a record number of spectators (more than 1,000) at the summer cinema in Radovljica. If the summer was marked by screenings under the stars, the screenings moved to cinemas and cultural centers in the autumn. In the fall, we also started cooperation with schools; to date, almost a thousand children from Radovljica and Bled elementary schools, as well as Radovljica High School, have seen the film as part of the cultural day. Since the impressions of the children and teachers were positive, and we were pleasantly surprised by the engagement and, above all, the directness of the children in the conversations that followed the screenings, we wish for more such screenings. If your school would also like to dedicate one of the cultural days to the Sava River, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to arrange everything necessary for the event.
In September, the film also began its journey at Slovenian and international film festivals. Until now, it has been accepted and screened at as many as 20 film festivals in 14 countries in Europe, North America and Asia, and has received 7 awards:
Ventotene Film Festival (ITA) – Green Path Award
Xplore Alpes Festival (FRA) – Grand Prix
