International Cultural Events

Ljubljana International Film Festival (LIFFe).

Each year, many events take place in Slovenia which are known beyond the national borders. First of all, there is the Biennial of Graphic Arts  , which has gained a reputation as one of Europe’s major art events; the annual Ljubljana Summer Festival ; Maribor’s Lent Festival ; the Exodos Dance Festival of Ljubljana; the street theatre festival called Desetnica; the PEN meeting in Bled; and the Vilenica literary festival in Sežana, which many foreign artists attend.

Ljubljana’s Cankarjev dom Cultural and Congress Centre is of special importance: its membership of the network uniting the world’s most prestigious cultural festivals has allowed it to become Slovenia’s window on the world in exchanges of Slovenian and foreign artists.
