Summer Film Festival 4 Elements
ŽivloVOD - VoD section
4 Elements want to stay an intimate event that has been cherished by their participants, but nevertheless 4 Elements are looking for ways to bring its program to ever wider public. Expansion within Banská Štiavnica and its surrounding area has its limits, but no restrictions seems to be for the Internet environment and service of "Video on Demand" (VOD), which operates on a principle similar to the video store. A quartet of films from the 16th summer edition's program and one Slovak title featured in the internet premiere, you can watch through the platform Distrify directly on the website of 4 Elements or with some of the partners of project ŽivloVOD - Rádio_FM and Kinema.sk portal. And yet very simply you can share movies with your closest friends on social networks or on your own websites, and thus support not only quality cinematography, but also 4 Elements. Selected samples from the seminar program will be available after the screening in Banská Štiavnica and you will be able to see them the next month. Similarly to the principle of tap water or pipeline, ŽivloVOD (Živlovod – in slovak language, reminds the word „pipeline/tap water (duct)“ = plynovod/ vodovod, it is a play on words.) is the channel that delivers films directly to your home!
