FESTIVAL PROGRAM

Only 6 weeks to the 2019 Gala Opening in Dendy Opera Quays!



More than 20 exciting movies including documentaries & shorts from the Czech Republic and Slovakia are waiting to be savoured.


We have put together many great genres of the Czech and Slovak cinematography in order to create a wonderful festival for you.


This year, in keeping with the real-life stories, we have included several of these in the festival. For instance, our excellent opening night feature Jan Palach is a reenactment of the last months in the life of a history student who ultimately became a part of history himself. Or David Ondříček’s Dukla 61, one of the most remarkable Czech TV productions of recent times examines the largest Czech mining disaster of the Communist era. Last but not least, the documentary Robert Vano – The Story of a Man/Robert Vano - Příběh člověka is about the famous Slovak photographer now once again living in the Czech Republic after decades spent in the US. His is a fascinating life story with some truly unexpected twists and turns.

 

For our comedies this year, don’t miss Miloš Forman’s Oscar-nominated masterpiece The Firemen’s Ball /Hoří má panenko from 1967 or our closing night international premiere of Rudolf Havlík’s excellent comedy What Men Long For/Po čem muži touží – the biggest box office hit of 2018 which surpassed even the biggest US blockbusters in popularity.


Accompanying our feature films, this year, as with previous years, we are also particularly pleased to be able to screen some of the best award-winning shorts such as Fruits of Clouds / Plody mraků or The Last Bus/Posledný autobus, to name just a couple.
