The 4th Visegrad Film Forum has announced a new name on the lineup, the Danish documentary filmmaker Mads Brügger! The forum will be held between 11th-14th of March, in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The Danish documentary director Mads Brügger will come to Visegrad Film Forum Bratislava to talk about his trademark documentary filmmaking.
