Spoštovani ljubitelji filma,

Piran, arhitekturni in kulturni dragulj Sredozemlja, je že v srednjem veku privabljal izjemne ljudi in pomembne goste. Številni ga nikoli ne pozabijo, veliko pa je takšnih, ki se vanj vračajo večkrat. Zaradi izjemne kulturne dediščine ali pa zgolj zato, da v tem čudovitem kraju preživimo svoj prosti čas, se v Piran vračamo vsi. Tokrat v svoji sredini ponovno gostimo ljubitelje kulture, umetnosti in filma iz Sredozemlja in širše Evrope. Občina Piran tako s ponosom gosti deseti Festival evropskega in mediteranskega filma, ki je odraz naraščajoče evropske filmske ustvarjalnosti. Tudi slovenska filmska produkcija je bogata in povezovalna, kljub zahtevnim finančnim izzivom, ki so vselej prisotni. Z medsebojnim sodelovanjem in z vizijo za prihodnost bomo ovire še naprej premagovali skupaj.

Đenio Zadković, župan Občine Piran


Since its establishment as a medieval town, this architectural and cultural gem of the Mediterranean has hosted an endless number of prominent guests and attracted many remarkable individuals to revisit it many times after seeing it for the first time. Everyone wants to return either for cultural purposes or just for leisure. This time we are attracting culture and film lovers from across the Mediterranean. The Municipality of Piran proudly hosts the Festival of European and Mediterranean Film for the tenth consecutive year. Slovenian filmmakers are extensively creative and their production is very rich. However, the financial challenges are still immense. Overcoming the difficulties is possible with mutual collaboration and vision for the future.

Đenio Zadković, major of  Piran


Drage filmoljubke in filmoljubci!

Letošnjo izvedbo Festivala evropskega in mediteranskega filma smo zamaknili v pozno jesen, ko je tudi podnebje bolj naklonjeno zadrževanju v kinodvoranah. Le nekaj dni po Ljubljanskem filmskem festivalu boste filmski navdušenci tudi na Obali lahko uživali v izbranih mojstrovinah, ki so letos prejele nominacije ter nagrade na največjih svetovnih festivalih. Devet celovečercev se je znašlo v Tekmovalnem programu, štirje med Evropskimi mojstri, pet v Šolsko-vzgojnem programu in pet v fokusu, kjer izpostavljamo sodobno italijansko produkcijo. Pokazali vam bomo razvpito Razbijalko sistema, pa glasbeno-socialni Ritem udarcev, nov film Kena Loacha Medtem ko vas ni bilo, kontroverzni Obtožujem! Romana Polanskega ter še eno ugledno mednarodno koprodukcijo – Tommaso, če naštejemo samo tiste, ki so vidni od daleč. Stopite bliže, preglejte katalog, izdelajte si svoj urnik in pripeljite tudi otroke. Priložnost je na dlani.

This year European and Mediterranean Film Festival was shifted in the late autumn, when the climate is more favorable to stay in cinemas. Just a few days after the Ljubljana International Film Festival, film enthusiasts will also be able to enjoy selected masterpieces on the Slovenian Coast, which received nominations and awards at the world’s biggest festivals this year. Nine feature films are in Official Competition Program, four in so called European Masters, five in School Education Program and five in Focus, where we highlight contemporary Italian production. We’ll show you the notorious System Crasher, music and social rhythm of Beats, Ken Loach’s new social drama Sorry we missed you, the controversial J’accuse by Roman Polanski and another prominent international co-production – Tommaso, to name but a few who are visible from afar. Step closer, search your favourite films in the catalogue, make your own schedule and bring your kids along. The opportunity is in the palm of your hand.
