Viba Film Studio

updated 3 days ago

Viba Film Studio.jpg

Viba Film Studio as we know it today was established in 1994 by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia as a state institution which operates as the national technical film foundation. In a way one could say that its history is longer (at least from 1956 when the production company Viba Film was established) as it existed already before but under (more or less) different names and under different organisational structures. Today Viba Film Studio is involved in the production and/or post-production of the majority of Slovene films included in the National Film Programme (co-funded by the Slovenian Film Centre), but it also operates on a strictly commercial basis (international co-productions, commercials, etc.). Viba also cooperates in student productions at the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television (AGRFT), both during the shooting of films and the post-production.

Slovenian Cinematheque Museum Department

updated 3 days ago

The Slovenian Cinematheque Museum Department is one of the four departments of the Slovenian Cinematheque and its roots go back to 1973 when the Film Museum was established by the Association of Slovenian Filmmakers (in 1979 it merged with the Theatre Museum into the Slovene Theatre and Film Museum) and was integrated in the Slovenian Cinematheque in 1996. Its main tasks are to systematically collect and assess exhibits of importance for the history of Slovene cinema and to document Slovene film production. The department initiated the Ita Rina Museum at Škratelj Homestead in Divača. In collaboration with the Municipality of Divača the Museum Department renovated the homestead in 2011 and expanded it to the Museum of Slovenian Film Actors.

Four sculptures – two flower pots and two busts of Bacchus – created in 1915 by the world-renown film-maker Fritz Lang (1890–1976) undoubtedly represent the highlights of the collection. In 2008 the sculptures were presented at the exhibition Fritz Lang en Escultura in La Coruña, Spain, revealing the importance of sculpture in Lang's films.

updated 3 days ago

The Association of Slovenian Filmmakers was established in 1950. It is one of the oldest film organisations in Slovenia and has had an important role in the development of Slovene cinema as it helped to found many important institutions like the Viba Film Studio and the Slovene Film Museum (today part of the Slovenian Cinematheque). The Association also organised the first yearly showcase meant for the domestic film production, that is, the Week of Slovene Film (which later became the Festival of Slovenian Film). Currently it has a membership of around 200, including film directors, directors of photography, screenwriters, producers, costume and set designers, etc. Apart from funding programmes, awards management and involvement in cultural policy, it organises film evenings, film workshops and seminars. It is regarded as an expert association whose activities serve the public interest.
