The member of TRAKT and a documentary filmmaker Marek Janičík made a 30-minute documentary called „Cinema World“ 3 years ago. It is a film about one of last classic (motion picture) cinemas in Slovakia that was in operation for over 60 years. However, the parish council was forced to close the cinema due to lack of finance in order to digitize its film projector. In fact, this is how more than 70% of classic cinemas ceased to exist. Being depicted in the documentary, this tragicomic story was brought to fame and was well-received at international film festivals.
The cinema in Považska Bystrica had been operating for more than 50 years. Causing by new technology on digital screening, it was closed in 2012 and people from the town have to travel to cities around there. Moreover, some other cultural institutions in the town have been closed recently. Thanks to these circumstances, people of Povazska Bystrica started to take care for culture production by themselves, creating new associations. One of those is new film club FILMS IN ATELIER, created on April 15, 2013 in renovated building of school of arts.
