Art Film Fest
The Art Film Fest is an International Film Festival established in Trenčianske Teplice, Slovakia in 1993, shortly after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia. The first annual festival commenced on 14 June 1993 under the auspices of UNESCO, and it is the oldest international film festival in the country.
The first year, mostly documentary films were awarded, but starting 1995 the Actor's Mission Award (Hercova misia in Slovak) was given. The award is given for special contributions to the art of film acting as a prize for longtime achievements. The premiere award's holder became Franco Nero, and to date numerous other internationally acclaimed artists (such as Jean-Paul Belmondo, Catherine Deneuve, Liv Ullmann, Omar Sharif, Geraldine Chaplin, Gina Lollobrigida, Ornella Muti) were honored during the next fifteen years of the film festival.
