In regards to the current situation around the COVID-19 outbreak, organizers of Visegrad Film Forum would like to disclose that we take it seriously, but considering the situation in the Slovak Republic (with only 1 registered case of COVID-19 by March 6), we will carry on and the upcoming Visegrad Film Forum 2020 (March 10 – 14) will take place as planned. We will follow the situation closely and will follow recommendations by the Slovak government and the Ministry of Health.

Current and updated information about the situation in the Slovak Republic are published on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

We have information about the travel arrangements of our guests and we can confirm that there are no participants coming from the areas heavily affected by COVID-19, such as Asia or Northern Italy.We would like to respond to the situation and the questions about the safety of the event and take the following precautions. Thus, we will distribute hand sanitizers and disinfectants on the locations.

We are looking forward to meet you in Bratislava!
