The first trip to Norway for partners

The representatives of the film company MIRAFILM s.r.o., which implements the project / Miroslava Trizmová, project coordinator and managing director / and John Buck, director, took part in working trip to Norway in preparation, where contracts were signed about partnership with the Norwegian side. Within the project we will make 21 documentary movies and Norway and Slovak photographers will take pictures of stated cultural landmarks. In the autumn, we will present the result in Norway, where we have a co-production partner - Oslo Fotokunstskole Ltd. and the American College of Moss. The official meeting was held also at the Slovak Embassy in Oslo. We have been received by Mr. František Kašický, Ambassador of the Slovak Republic in the Kingdom of Norway and the Republic of Iceland.

In addition to partnership agreements in Norway, we have agreed on further cooperation with the embassy in Norway with Mr. Ambassador Kasicky. He was excited about this international project and suggested to extend the exhibition of photos and movies. Within the occasion of the Slovak Republic as the presiding country of the EU there will be held a photo exhibition in the presence of all ambassadors in Norway, where the concert will be introduced by Mr. Ambassador Kašický and the culmination will be the piano concert of Peter Breiner, piano virtuoso and world-renowned composer. At the same time we expect presentation of movies at our embassy and in areas of tourism, where we plan to offer for free these documentary movies and photos of our cultural heritage."
