Thankfully, Cinematik, also known as International Film Festival Piešťany, which is one of the largest film gatherings in Slovakia, did not have to face the tough decision of whether to cancel or postpone this year’s 15th edition. The gathering is taking place as usual in the middle of this month (10-15 September), although it will be unspooling under the “new normal” regime imposed by preventive hygiene measures.

The organisers have capped the number of theatregoers to 500 inside venues, screenings after 11 pm have been cancelled (the Cult and Beyond midnight section has been moved to next year), only theatregoers with accreditations (bought online) will be eligible to attend screenings, ticket sales have been abandoned, and face masks will be mandatory in and around the festival’s venues. The 15th edition will open with Ivan Ostrochovský’s Berlinale drama Servants [+leggi anche:
