About the festival

As Sanje Publishing House was founded in 1997, it immediately set about working on international projects with major international cultural players. Its activities intensified gradually, particularly based on its Sanje Festival, which has been integrating literature and other artistic genres since 2002.

The fundamental element of the festival being literature, the organisers have been trying to bring literature and the book closer to the public. Considering the growing number of people attending the readings of both emerging and established authors, it can be said that the festival serves as a successful platform to do so.

The festival was originally rooted in Ljubljana, however, an ambition developed through the years to transform it into a wider platform. In recent years, the festival has been opening to other locations, which resulted in several festival editions across Slovenia, sometimes organised by Sanje, sometimes integrating external co-organisers.

The initiative also appeared to make the festival a world scale platform. 2008 was the breakthrough year, as arrangements were made with partners in Burkina Faso. The programme of Sanje Festival 2008 thus incorporated a regular radio children programme in Burkina Faso – fairy tales narrated on air three times a week. This being the first children programme in this African country, it was also a considerable achievement in the local context. A few years ago the festival also hosted the first European exhibition of photographs by the Tuareg photographer Mohamed Souleyman (Niger).

In the past two years, the festival also featured several international collaborations, particularly with the neighbouring countries. The 2009 edition saw the appearance of several Croatian singers-songwriters within the series “Fight Schengen with music” (Nina Romić, Voland Le Mat, Ivan Vragolovich), which not only reminded of our weak awareness of excellent musicians in our vicinity, but also helped create close ties with them. In 2010, the cooperation was maintained and upgraded, leading to talks for further joint projects. Moreover, the 2010 edition also featured guest appearances from Macedonia (King Naat Veliov & Original Kočani Orkestar), Austria (Kein Schöner Rand), Spain (Manuel Manzano), Great Britain (Tom Muir & Lawrence Tulloch), and the international world-music project Ethno in Transit.

Another important project that was partly developed within the Festival has to do with one of the most charming Slovenian children tales – Little Sleepy Star. First it was published in Slovenian as a picture book. Then the initiative appeared to organise an exhibition, which was realised at the 2008 edition of the festival. As the festival held in Ljubljana city centre aimed at an international audience, the tale was translated into several languages and recorded as an audio book. The recordings kept playing in a continuous loop throughout the festival to accompany the exhibition. This then led to the book being published in several languages, so that in 2011, when the festival is immersed in the cooperation project, it will be available in the languages of all partner countries.

Sanje being a Publishing House, there are naturally several international publishing projects to be mentioned. The organisation has always sought to bring the most exceptional writers closer to Slovenian audiences. This was done not only by publishing book translations, but also by accompanying projects providing them with added value.

Despite being a publishing house, Sanje clearly is an interdisciplinary organisation. It is our major objective to bring together the most excellent examples of various artistic genres coming from a variety of cultural backgrounds, and create added value for everybody involved. Undoubtedly, this is what European cultural players should seek to achieve.


Sanjam, torej sem.

Vse najlepše za DAN MLADOSTI!

Se vidimo nocoj na Kongresnem trgu!

"A nekoč bo poletje
brez sovraštva in brez strahotnih ran,
ti novi otroci
bodo peli in vriskali v sončen dan,
morda to poletje
se bo dalo najhujše pozabiti,
naj pride poletje
rož in dobrih ljudi!"

Da bo Dan mladosti pokončen in smel, izbire svobodne.

25. maj: Herezija

Leta 325 je v Nikeji potekal prvi ekumenski koncil krščanstva, ki ga je sklical cesar Konstantin.
V treh mesecih, kolikor je koncil trajal, je tristo škofov potrdilo nekaj dogem, potrebnih za boj proti hereziji, inodločili so, da bo beseda herezija, iz grške haíresis, ki je prej pomenila izbira, odslej pomenila napaka.
Se pravi: tisti, ki svobodno izbere in se ne pokori gospodarjem
vere, naredi napako.

"Kako sovražim te leptosomatike, ki se lahko bašejo, s čimer hočejo, pa se jim nič ne pozna! Včeraj je prebral tri debele baročne romane - tri! - pa si ga poglej! Vitek kot smreka! Če se jaz tako pregrešim, moram par tednov brati na dieti." /.../
"Pa lahko knjigo tudi dvakrat ...?"
"Če si jo popolnoma prebavil - ja. Knjigo lahko poješ znova in znova."
" Kaj je boljšega okusa: poezija ali proza?"
"Stvar okusa."
"Obstaja slabo prebavljivo branje?"
"Po grozljivkah imaš nočne more. Trivialna literatura ne nasiti. Pustolovski romani so menda slabi za živce."
"Nasitijo pisatelji z večjim besednim zakladom bolj od drugih?"
"Se razume."
"Kaj pa stvarne knjige?"
"So bolj za prigrizek."
"Pa kuharske knjige?"
"A nas imaš za norce?"
"Kaj pa natisnjene žolčne kritike?"
"Pustijo slab okus v ustih."

"In potem sem jih zagledal. Sanjajoče knjige. Tako so v tem mestu rekli antikvarnim zalogam, ker s trgovčevega vidika niso več zares živele niti še niso zares umrle, temveč so bile v vmesnem stanju, podobnem spanju. Svoj dejanski obstoj so imele za seboj, razkroj pa pred seboj, in tako so ždele tja v en dan, na milijone in megamilijone jih je ležalo na vseh teh policah in v škatlah ter v kleteh in v bukvanskih katakombah. Samo če je knjigo pobrala iščoča roka in jo odprla, če so jo kupili in odnesli, je znova oživela. In natanko o tem so sanjale vse te knjige."

"In tu se predal s črko R zapre.

Zapre se iz diskretnosti,
ker mora Rala Ruma zdaj
posvetiti v čudež ljubezni.

Kajti obstajajo čudeži,
ki se morajo zgoditi v temi."

Ljubi sanjski bralci,

v divjem hrepenenju po deželi, v kateri fantazija nikoli ne zaide, smo spakirali bisage, šotore in knjige in pustili Pošast Resnično Apokaliptično Strašne Eksistence daleč za seboj.

Čudežni portal, ki odpira vrata v Zamonijo, se danes do desete večerne ure nahaja v Hiši sanjajočih knjig. Za 50 odstotkov lažji vstop v deželo, kjer se cedijo pustolovščine in literarna genialnost, potrebujete nič manj kot čisto srce. Najdete ga v katalogu 20 let tisoč in ene noči, na njem je z bleščečimi črkami vklesan napis Dan Zamonije.

V pričakujočem obetu radostnega snidenja na jasnih frekvencah domišljije na tem mestu pred vami razgrinjamo zemljevid MOERSEJEVE* abecede, da ne zgrešite poti; dodajamo opombo, da je skrivnostne rokopise potem, ko so bili prevedeni iz zamonijščine v nemščino, knjižnemu posluhu slovenskih fantastov na ljubo briljantno dešifrirala Stana Anželj.

"Če se v zahodni Zamoniji na Dulski visoki planoti namenite proti vzhodu in imate zibajoča se travnata morja končno za seboj, se obzorje nenadoma veličastno razpre in uzrete neskončno širjavo nad ravno pokrajino, ki v daljavi prehaja v Sladko puščavo. V skopo ozeleneli pustinji lahko popotnik pri lepem vremenu in redkem zraku razloči packo, ki naglo raste, ko ji urno zakoračite naproti. Ki privzema izrazite poteze in dobiva koničaste strehe ter se naposled izkaže za pravljično mesto, ki se mu pravi Bukvana."

Do tedaj, ko se snidemo na zbirnem mestu v Bukvani (ne zamudite!), pa vam z grajsko lintvernsko pošto pošiljamo koš poljubčkov in razglednice z lepimi pozdravi iz Zamonije!
