Summer Film Festival 4 Elements

Practical information

The 24th Summer Film Festival 4 Elements will be dedicated to the theme CHAOS. You can purchase a Cinepass, allowing entry to all parts of the program for a special presale price €22 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 entry that are mentioned below.

The entry for individual projections without a Cinepass is €5 (unless another price is mentioned), the accompanying events are admission free (until a price is mentioned) 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 120 people. We will inform about the remaining Cinepasses still available for purchase at the Accredtiation section of our 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.
