Organised annually by the Prešeren Theatre Kranj since 1971, the prestigious theatre festival Week of Slovenian Drama presents the most successful performances based on a Slovene play or text and staged in the last season by Slovene theatres. The festival, which usually runs for nearly 2 weeks, concludes with a ceremony at which the Grum Award is bestowed on the best original Slovene play, the Grün-Filipič Award is awarded for excellence in dramaturgy. Two awards are given for the best staging of a Slovene play appearing on the festival: the Šeligo Award, decided by an expert jury, and the Audience Award, voted by the festival audience.


Besides showcasing national productions, the programme also includes presentations of international stagings of Slovene plays. Thus far, the festival has hosted performances from Austria, Japan, Monte Negro, Great Britain, Serbia, Slovakia, Luxembourg, etc. Prešeren Theatre Kranj works hard to further expand the international part of the festival by devising round-table conferences involving famous dramatists, experts on theatre, producers, and publishers.
