Summer Film Festival 4 Elements

Practical information

The 22nd Summer Film Festival 4 Elements will be dedicated to the theme EXIT. You can purchase a Cinepass, allowing entry to all parts of the program for a special presale price €18 until sold out. 

Cinepass is a novelty that replaces the accreditation system and works on a similar principle - you register into the system (standard visitor account) and from there you can not only buy a Cinepass for 4 Elements and other festivals but later you can book a spot for the individual films according to the rules of admission that we will publish before the event. The entry for individual projections without a Cinepass is €4,5 (unless another price is mentioned), the accompanying events are admission free but Cinepass holders have priority entry. A Cinepass allows the holder to attend all parts of the event’s program. Also movie theaters have seats reserved for Cinepass holders.

You can exchange vouchers (virtual cards) purchased at the portal for wrist bands with a code at the accreditation center of the festival during the whole event. Vouchers (virtual cards) are non-refundable! The number of Cinepass holders is limited to 100 people. We will inform about the remaining Cinepasses still available for purchase at the website or our social media. 

System Cinepass allows you to purchase tickets for individual screenings. If you don’t own a Cinepass, just visit and purchase your tickets from the comforts of your home in advance and avoid waiting in lines at the ticket booth.

A Cinepass allows access to all screenings and accompanying events and enables the holder to reserve seats in movie theaters. We ask the Cinepass holders who have reserved their seats in the system cinepass. sk to arrive at Kino Akademik at least 10 minutes before the screening starts, otherwise the reservation will be cancelled. Visitors without a Cinepass can purchase the tickets to individual screenings and events as well.

To keep drinking water in case, especially in the hot wheater.

To wear warm clothes for evening screenings and equip with blankets, because the weather in Banská Štiavnica is treacherous and nights are cold.

To keep it clean. Instead of polluting screening areas and accompanying events with trash, rather throw it to the nearest rubbish bin. It is never too far away and anyone of staff will direct you with pleasure.
