V4 Film Series Begins April 14

The Embassies of Slovakia, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Hungary present the fourth annual V4 Film Series, running from April 14-May 5, 2015. The theme of this year’s film series is “Legends.” Over the years, some events and people in the history of the countries were blended into the area of legend and folk tales. These legends, because of the tie to a historical event or location, are believable, although not necessarily believed. Discover national heroes and legends from the past. Indulge in fantasy, where the boundary between the real and the unreal is almost invisible.

The Visegrad Group, (established in 1991, also known as the “Visegrad Four” or simply “V4”) is an alliance of four Central European states – Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. It reflects the efforts of these countries to work together in a number of fields of common interest within the all-European integration advancing their economic, military, energy and cultural cooperation with one another.

The Visegrad Group wishes to contribute towards building the European security architecture based on effective, complementary and mutually reinforcing cooperation and coordination within existing European and transatlantic institutions. Slovakia currently holds the rotating presidency of the V4.
