This Festival was founded in 2011
Film night at the castle is multicultural open air galery of short films, unique in Europe and Slovak area. Thanks to its` unique placement at Saris castle open air grounds, festival attracts` film lovers since 2011. Since then around 200 short films has been screened at Saris Castle hill. In 2018 we would like to increase this number, using not only one screening place as it was usual during previous years, but 3 screening places during two film nights. Festival will be accompanied with series of workshops about audio-visual and film, and other activities focused on families (theatre for kids, painting activities,) and music performances for all. During this year we would like to offer two, new competition sections. Award for - The best performer at the documentary film (selected by expert jury), and Anti Award - Worst short film of the festival (peoples` choice award). We also want to create new ‘Chill out zone’ for visitors who want to enjoy nature around The Castle Saris. For Family visitors we would like to offer full-fledged program as usual. Next innovation for families is au pair corner with creative games and workshops for kids. Visitors will also appreciate unique opportunity for camping which is not allowed during regular year. This opportunity is one of many benefits visitors enjoy during our festival. Film night starts with one feature film and a whole night of short films after from various productions and countries. Main feature film of 2018 will be Obrazy starého sveta (1972) by Dusan Hanak. Mr Hanak has confirmed his participation.
