Where Does Fest Anča Take Place?

The main venue of the festival is the Stanica Žilina-Záriečie Cultural Centre, situated at 3 Závodská Cesta, Žilina.


Fest Anča Game Days take place in the New Synagogue at 220 J. M. Hurban Street in Žilina.


Among Fest Anča’s screening places, there is also the Žilina Puppet Theatre, situated at 6 Kuzmányho Street. Thanks to Telka v meste (TV in the City), this year you can also watch cartoons in the open air movie theatre at the Andrej Hlinka Square (Námestie Andreja Hlinku). You will also find us at Artforum Bookshop at 11 Mariánske Square.

What Languages do we Speak?

Most films are screened either in English original version or with English subtitles. Presentations and masterclasses are conducted in English.

What Are the Accomodation Possibilities ?


Accredited festival visitors can set up a tent for 5 EUR in a guarded campsite situated right next to the Stanica Cultural Centre. For the same price, they can be accommodated overnight in the Sokolovňa gymnasium. Opening hours for the gymnasium are 28 June from 12:00 to July 1. till 14:00. The capacity of both facilities is limited and we recommend to make a reservation online.

At Stanica, you will find a bar with a wide offer of soft drinks and spirits. There are also food stands with vegan, vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.
