The International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI), Slovenia is a national section of the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI). It has currently around 30 members and is regularly active in national and international FIPRESCI juries, especially in Europe. It is lead by a five member executive committee of young accomplished film critics: Ana Šturm (president), Tina Poglajen (vice president), Petra Meterc, Sanja Struna and Jasmina Šepetavc.

Its members write or report on film for most of the Slovenian media and collaborate with various film institutions and festivals in Slovenia. At the Festival of Slovenian Film a three member national FIPRESCI jury bestows the FIPRESCI Slovenia Award to the best feature film of the competitive programme.

The international federation

The International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) originated in 1925 when some film journalists from Paris and Brussels founded a Professional Association of the Film Press.

The purpose of the FIPRESCI, as set out in its statutes, is to develop on an international scale the activities of its members, particularly: (1) to safeguard the freedom and ethics of film criticism and film journalism and of information; (2) to promote and expand the idea of the cinema as a means of artistic expression and of cultural education; (3) to discuss, define and confirm the specific rights and obligations of film criticism and journalism; (4) to encourage the exchange of ideas and experience among film critics and film journalists of all countries and thereby create, outside all ideological and political distinctions, a new foundation for a permanent dialogue; and (5) to publish and distribute all the documents which accord with this view.
