Slovenian Art Cinema Association was established in November 2009 (formally in April 2010). It unites the cinems and other screening halls that promote high-quality and art film round Slovenia.

Its main goal is to ease and to improve the working conditions of member cinemas, to help them in acquiring the proper technical equipment, to improve the circulation of important information, and to stimulate national and international collaboration. Turned towards the future, the association promotes the digitalisation of cinemas and suggests some practical solutions (in accordance with the Europa Cinemas guidelines). It also organises meetings and lectures.


Forming the Slovenian Art Cinema Association in 2010 was the second attempt to bring together Slovene art cinemas; the first was done in 2003 when the Kinodvor Cinema reopened its door as an art cinema in close cooperation with the Slovenian Cinematheque) and to facilitate their activity.
