The purpose of the Krafft Festival is to bring an outstanding global selection of movies marked by exceptional acting achievements to the capital of the Gorenjska region, as well as talented and globally renowned actors, actresses and top-notch professionals that will share their stories, skills and experience.

The films in competition represent a slice of exceptional contemporary film production and excellence in acting, rigorously evaluated by an international jury. The Accompanying Programme is focused on knowledge exchange, and includes roundtable discussions, lectures, master classes and workshops. The focus is on student and feature films of various lengths. Informal socialising will offer additional opportunities for the exchange of various experiences, perceptions and viewpoints on the art of acting.

Krafft is the only festival in the wider region that focuses on the acting craft within the field of audiovisual creation.

“Krafft is a young, but very unique festival in this region. We focus on the significance of acting in films, both from the viewpoint of the actors themselves, as well as all the other sectors involved in film production, and we seek to build on it qualitatively. The Festival unites all of the participants in the movie industry, from the screenplay to the viewer. At its core, Krafft is a celebration of actors and of their achievements.” – Branko Završan, President of the Krafft Festival
