Free Sweet Breakfast at the Relaxation Zone During Art Film Fest

This year, Žurnál weekly is sponsoring the Relaxation Zone. For the entire week, film festival visitors will be able to pleasantly relax right in the outdoors, in the immediate proximity of the Tatra banka Cinema in Trenčianske Teplice. As an added bonus, festival-goers will also be invited for a sweet breakfast, which will be prepared for visitors of the Žurnál weekly Relaxation Zone every morning for the entire duration of the festival. In addition to films, visitors will be able to attend two major open-air concerts free of charge. On Sunday, 21 June, Trenčín’s main square will welcome an outstanding band from our western neighbours, the Eben Brothers, led by the famous TV moderator and actor Marek Eben. Art Film Fest’s second major concert will take place on Wednesday, 24 June, when fans can look forward to the popular Czech group Kryštof, with the charismatic Richard Krajčo at the helm. Art Film Fest attendees will be able to sample concerts every day in Trenčianske Teplice’s festival cafes and Spa Hall. The music series “Every Evening Live with Oskar Rózsa” starts off on Saturday, 20 June, when Tomáš Sloboda, former frontman of the cult band Le Payaco, will sing with his group Sounds Like This.  Up to the festival’s close, concerts will be played by jazz combo Oskar Rózsa Partnership Unlimited, the vocal group Fragile – eight singers without musical instruments, who present well-known international pop and jazz hits – Radek Pastrňák and Pakostra Blues – a group of first-rate Ostrava blues musicians – Slovak folk-rock singer Soňa Horňáková with her band, Slovak singer Jana Kirschner with her band and popular singer Marcel Palonder with his new project TangoUltimo. Again this year, students up to 26 years of age will have the opportunity to visit the Art Film Fest International Film Festival free of charge. All it takes is filling out the registration form at the festival website:, which will be available until 18 June, 2009. ———————————————————————————————————– Organizers: ART FILM, n.o., FORZA Production House Co-Organizers: the Town of Trenčianske Teplice, the Town of Trenčín, Health Spa Trenčianske Teplice
