On Our Own Land (Slovene: Na svoji zemlji) is a 1948 film directed by France Štiglic. It was the first Slovene sound feature film. It was released on 21 November 1948 in Union Cinema (Kino Union) in Ljubljana, received a great public acclaim, and was entered into the 1949 Cannes Film Festival.
The script was based (with significant changes) on the novella Grandpa Orel (Očka Orel) by Ciril Kosmač. It depicts the last two years of World War II in the Slovenian Littoral, occupied by the Italians. After their capitulation, the German army takes over a village. The movie tells about both the Partisan resistance forces and the villagers.
The music for the film was written by the composer Marjan Kozina.
