Focus



Mountain Film Festival


Dedicated to exploring and presenting various facets of mountain culture, the Mountain Film Festival was established in 2007. Since then, it has been running a strong international program that encompasses various films about mountain sports (mountaineering, mountain running, B.A.S.E jumping, etc.), different types of climbing (from bouldering to ice climbing), mountain wildlife, and the lives of indigenous mountain dwellers, among other topics. Since its inception, the festival has been led by its founder, the legendary mountaineer Silvo Karo.

Over the years, the festival has grown to the point where it is now comparable to the biggest and most important mountain film festivals worldwide. In 2010, the Mountain Film Festival became a member of the International Alliance for Mountain Film.

Overview



Fields of Experimental Music in Slovenia

Luka T. Zagoričnik


Let's take a ride on the term experimental music, which currently mainly defines certain more fringe musical practices, across the expanses of various musical plains, styles and genres. We can apply this (overly) broad term to designate the varied creative simmering in certain segments of the present-day Slovenian music scene. A scene that spans the realms of electro-acoustic music, musique concrète, experimental music in the context of modern classical music, free improvisation, experimental electronic music and sound art as well as their associated present-day trends. This scene is diverse and exceptionally agile. It has developed a strong infrastructure for itself (festivals, concert series, labels, international networks) and exists in the space between self-organising and DIY models and institutional environments.
