Panoramic Film Presentation in Banská Bystrica
30. June - 2. July 2023 8. Annual Festival 70mm, 35mm and 16mm Films, Banská Bystrica

The first year of the Panoramic Film Presentation took place at the Amphitheatre in Banska Bystrica, Slovak Republic in 2016. The aim of the presentations was to enable local visitors from Banská Bystrica, and also from nearby towns and villages, to come and take part of a series of unique screenings of classic film prints.

In today's digital age, seeing a classic film on film is becoming increasingly rare, and it is almost impossible to experience the "royal format" of 70mm. There are very few 70mm prints available (preserved or new prints), and locating a cinema with a functional 70mm installation and people to operate it is even harder to come by.

The festival is primarily intended for local audiences and we try to prepare the program accordingly. Picture by Martin Dubovsky

There are very few 70mm festivals in Europe, and it involves a lot of effort and money to organize such a program. The show in Banská Bystrica in the Slovak Republic have several characteristics which makes it significantly different from other 70mm shows in Europe. It is an open-air show, and at the same time also the smallest 70mm film festival, with only three film screenings taking place during three evenings. It is the only (known) and regular open-air presentation of 70mm films in Europe. The Amphitheater in Banská Bystrica is the last known large out-door summer cinema in Europe, which can also show 70mm wide films. The screenings take place on a gigantic 32 x 15 meters panoramic screen, with a beautiful city view of Banská Bystrica in evening light behind it.

We hope that the weather will behave, so we will all be able to enjoy the "Splendour of 70mm" under the open night sky. The experience of open-air 70mm is different from the experience in a classic cinema. It is hard to explain. Come and try for yourself.
