6. Interview with Jože Slaček

“What I am missing in the festival is some more entertainment – that is, of course, if we consider the term ‘festival’ in itself. As far as the beginnings of the festival are concerned, we are talking about the mid-nineties, when certain things began to enter into these parts increasingly. The political situation, i. e. the socio-political relations was marked by some sort of optimism. The first half of the nineties’ period was very optimistic. This was also transferred onto the arts, and – yes, the general interest in new technologies was increasing, and since lectures, projections and other related events in the city were already on the go, it made sense to capture them all inside a single festival form, and thus create a single thematic festival in this area. Naturally, you need to consider that the initial technical conditions were indeed very poor – there was no equipment, no projectors, no internet – and the first projects were created accordingly. They may have been technically less advanced, but they were conceptually more thought-out and intersected with a powerful creative charge.”
