The city of Košice

In 2016, Art Film Fest moved house to Košice, chiefly drawn by the city’s more accommodating infrastructure. The cultural and economic hub of eastern Slovakia, Košice is an ideal location for a film festival.

Art Film Fest will be held in the centre of Košice. The programme of accompanying events for the wider public will take place on the city’s Hlavná ulica (Main Street). Films will be screened at the venues listed below.
