List of Slovak films

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a chronological list of films that make up the Cinema of Slovakia. There may be an early overlap especially between Slovak and Hungarian films when the two nations shared the Kingdom of Hungary, later between Slovak and Czech films when the two nations shared Czecho-Slovakia or Czechoslovakia. The list should attempt to document films that are either Slovak-produced or associated with Slovak culture. Please see the detailed A-Z of films currently covered on Wikipedia at Category:Slovak films, List of Czechoslovakian films, and Category:Czech films.
