Known simply by its abbreviation LIFFe (pronounced LEEF-eh) to locals, the two-week festival is the undisputed highlight of the year for Slovene cinephiles and is guaranteed to offer a dizzying selection of films from around the world and across all genres. It's also the best chance during the year for non-Slovene speakers to see international films subtitled in English. Venues include Ljubljana's two main independent cinemas, Kinoteka and Kinodvor, Cankarjev Dom, the Kino Šiška Urban Cultural Centre and the Kolosej multiplex in BTC. The full programme of this year's event will be officially announced in mid-October, with tickets going on sale at the same time. It's always a good idea to buy them in advance as sold out screenings are not uncommon, and discounted sets of tickets can also be purchased online as well.
