1. Slovak Movie Database

1. Slovenská filmová databáza


A project of the Slovak Film Institute (SFÚ), the 1. Slovak Movie Database collects information on all Slovak full-length (fiction, documentary, animated) feature films made in Slovakia from 1921 (date of the first full-length film Jánošík) until today, with new titles continually being added. The database does not include films made for television, Czech films, foreign films shot on the territory of Slovakia, or films made by major foreign capital with minor Slovak financial participation. It provides information on about 400 films and the English version of the sites is also available.

The website consists of two main parts: homepage and database. The homepage offers background on the creation of the database, a register of readers, discussion forums and popularity charts. Within the database, website visitor can choose from several options: The Tvorcovia (‘Filmmakers’) section offers information on the variety of artists participating on the production of a film, including directors, actors, scriptwriters and other creators of Slovak films. They are organised in alphabetical order and by professions. Search is also possible by defined criteria. In the category of Filmy (‘Films’) search is possible by title, production year, genre or date of first release. In the section Postavy (‘Characters’), specific characters and heroes can be searched by name. These are continuously revised and organised in alphabetical order. Hľadanie (‘Search’) is a tool for specifying searching criteria in the whole database. It also offers an advanced search option. Štatistiky (‘Statistics’) informs the visitor about access to individual films, the number of films, plus more information about the filmmakers and other related details.
