Slovenia Celebrates 100th Anniversary of First Film

Ljubljana, 7 October - Slovenes had the opportunity to see the first film in the country as soon as on 16 November 1896, only a year after the first World Fair in Paris. The first film was shown at the Pri Maliču Hotel in Ljubljana. Film has since become a means, a symbol of the freedom of creation. It has formed the historical, sociological and cultural image of Slovene political momentum.
