Fest Anca International animation Festival (Slovakia) 03/15/16
The International animation festival Fest Anča was first mentioned back in 2008 and since the start it has been located in what used to be an ancient settlement and currently is an industrial regional city called Žilina, lying on the North-West of Slovakia. Since the very beginning, the event is connected with the cultural centre Stanica Žilina-Záriečie and is being carried out during the extended weekend after the summer solstice. The festival, tagged as hot and cool at the same time doesn’t spread out red carpets, however the festival’s archives are full of interesting international guests. DVD by mail.
Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival 3/15/16
seeks films that portray a broad range of experiences – destinations ranging from small African villages to a campground 30 miles from home; solo travel or a family reunion on bicycles; an organized tour from inn to inn or a shoestring jaunt with tent and sleeping bag.

It intends to increase awareness and appreciation for bicycle travel by showcasing independent films that depict the adventure, humor, and growth inherent in two-wheeled journeys.
