About Košice International Film Festival

Welcome to the KOSICE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL aka JEDNOTKA 2024. We will meet on May 27-29, 2024 at KINO ÚSMEV KOSICE.

Kosice International Film Festival is IMDb-qualifying film festival with live screenings in Košice, in Slovakia. Our mission and goal is to discover and promote talented filmmakers from all over the world and present them to the public. Therefore our festival is a brilliant opportunity to participate in international competition.

The festival is created in cooperation with the Košice Film High School. Every year, the festival prepares several interesting educational activities for students, such as a Workshop with JUMPCAT, analysis of films from the Festival de Cannes, interviews with festival guests.

For the last two years, we have presented Slovak films to the audience, including the personal participation of guests:
CENZORKA/eng. 107 Mothers (dir. Peter Kerekes)
PLASTIC SYMPHONY (dir. Juraj Lehotský)

Juraj Lehotský visited us personally and we also organized an analysis of his films with Q&A. Juraj is Slovak film director who first feature-length documentary Blind Loves (2008) premiered in the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs section at the Festival de Cannes 2008, where he won CICAE Art Cinemas Award. His films have already been presented at festivals such as Zurich, Trieste, Camerimage, Karlove Vary, Tribeca, Warsaw, Shanghai and many others.

The festival honored many great film directors. Previous winners of our festival are directors such as Dekel Berenson ("Anna", premiered: Festival de Cannes), Morad Mostafa ("HENET WARD", premiered: Clermont Int Film Festival), Molly Manning Walker ("GOOD THANKS, YOU?", premiered: Semaine de la Critique – Cannes), Zachary Woods (“DAVID”, premiered: Festival de Cannes), Guy Nattiv (“Skin” – Winner Academy Awards Oscar), Charlie Manton (“NOVEMBER 1ST”, Bronze Academy Awards Oscar), Georgi M. Unkovski (“STICKER”, premiered: Sundance Film Festival), Anthony Nti (DA YIE?, premiered: Clermont Int Film Festival), Guillermo García López ("Aunque es de noche, premiered: Festival de Cannes, winner GOYA Awards) and many others.

THE RASMUZ is certainly well known to music lovers. This band under the direction of Jesse Haaj won the main prize in the category:
Music Video with the song for the clip JEZEBEL.

The festival has already presented projects that are also available on various well-known streaming platforms:
NETFLIX - Two Words as the Key (dir.Dan Svatek), VILLA LUCIA (dir. Michal Kollar)
MUBI - Of Living Without Illusion (dir. Katharina Lüdin/Germany), The Sugar Experiment (dir. John Tornblad/Sweden),

In five years, we have looked at more than 15K projects from more than 140 countries of the world. So don't hesitate and join the filmmakers who made it to Cannes.
