When it comes to events, Slovenia offers a diverse selection, from world-class opera, ballet and classical music performances to cutting edge underground concerts and exhibitions, webinars and everything in between.
Most cultural institutions, theatres, galleries, movie theatres, museums, DJs and different art collectives have started streaming their live shows online or opening up their archives, so you can enjoy them from the comfort or discomfort of your own home.
31st Ljubljana International Film Festival – Liffe
Between 11 and 22 November 2020, a selection of 31st Ljubljana International Film Festival films will be available as an on-demand service.
By accessing www.liffe.si visitors will be able to navigate – via the VOD (video on demand) platform – some of the finest and latest offerings from filmmakers braving these challenging times. They will be able to choose from approximately 20 titles, including five competition films from the Perspectives section.
Liffe is thus continuing to provide film enthusiasts with an insight into new, relevant, and quality film production.
The 31st Liffe programme initially comprised 55 feature films (and a selection of shorts), including the 17 films from the Federico Fellini retrospective – copies that cannot be shown digitally or remotely. Out of the 38 new productions, around 20 films will be available via the virtual platform. Regretfully, we were unable to obtain online screening licences for others, only theatre viewing rights.
Visit exhibitions of the Technical museum Slovenia
The Technical Museum of Slovenia holds in trust more than 18,000 objects from various fields of science and engineering. Only a minority of those are displayed in the museum. Most are kept in museum depots which are not accessible to the public. Therefore, in the future they plan to present more and more technical heritage on the museum website.
You can explore the many exhibitions that the museum holds online. Visit the online exhibitions here.
Enjoy looking through the museum of telecommunications and post
Museum of Post and Telecommunications in Polhov Graces presents objects of archaeological and ethnological heritage in Slovenia.

Listen to the sounds of the past
Society is changing rapidly. When our time is described in the history books it will surely be compared with the industrial revolution. With the help of project Sounds of Changes they wish to document a portion of this rapid change, namely the change in the acoustic landscape. How does today’s world sound? By collecting today’s sounds and soundscapes, we create a reference material that can be used for historical comparisons and descriptions.
Sound of Changes is a cooperation between six museums in Europe. Explore the sounds of the past here.
