Television Killed the Cinema Star

Janez Janša on TV

19 March 2013. A special day for us. The day of the “Triplete” as José Mourinho would put it. Our movie My Name is Janez Janša was in fact screened in three different locations simultaneously: in a cinema hall in the town of Kranj, at the Oslo International Theaterfestival in Norway, and on TV SLO 1, the first channel of the Slovenian national television.

The TV screening happened at 9 pm, prime time, and got a share of 12.5 %, that correspond to 88.869 spectators. Not a bad result for a documentary movie. So… bravo Janša!

But, on the other hand, with this great shot, we lost the chance to screen further our doc at Kinodvor, the City Cinema of Ljubljana. Folks there maintain it makes no sense to keep it in their program after the TV broadcast.

Never mind. We are leaving Kinodvor after over 4 months of programming there and a total of 113 screenings.

Thanks Kinodvor for the professionalism and for the great experience. And thanks also to the TV SLO, of course. It was a pleasure to work with you!

Janez
