The International Student Film and Video Festival is the first international festival in Slovenia that is focused on student film and video production. Filofest festival takes place every two years at the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana, since 2006. The festival is organized by the students of the Faculty of Arts as well as other Ljubljana faculties.

Along with its primary role as a film festival, the International Student Film and Video Festival Filofest is accompanied by additional programme: lectures, panel discussions, exhibitions, social gatherings, etc.

Before 2014, the competition part of the programme was opened exclusively to independent student films, whose authors were amateurs without any formal film education. Films directed by students of film academies or film schools were screened within the non-competition part of the programme. In 2014, the festival opened the competition programme to all student films, but also presented a special award to an independent student film. The festival accepts fiction, documentary, animated and experimental films, and music videos.

Awards

Between 2006 and 2010, the best film, which received the main award of the festival, was chosen by the audience. The festival jury also presented awards to films that entered in the competition part of the programme: the award for best film, best directing, best screenplay, best performance, best fiction film, best documentary film, best animated film, and best experimental film. In 2012 and 2014 all awards were presented by the jury, including main award for best film. In 2014, an additional award for best independent film was awarded.
