The Finále Plzeň Film Festival: Everything You Need To Know About Czech Cinema

The Finále Plzeň Film Festival has been enjoying a renaissance. The new management has brought a fresh and modern perspective on this traditional film event. Its original programme corresponds with prestigious world festivals and it is the only platform of this kind in the Czech Republic keeping track of television and internet production as well as films.

 

The 31st edition of the Finále Plzeň Film Festival includes a competition section which between the 19th and 24th of April will screen a selection of the most engaging Czech and Slovak live-action and animated feature films, documentaries, television projects and - this year for the first time - student films under 40 minutes. The best ones will be awarded a Golden Kingfisher by an international expert jury.

 

The 2018 Finále Plzeň programme also offers attractive premieres and preview screenings, co-production films with Czech participation, as well as accompanying summer silent cinema and concerts. ZOOM is a probe into foreign European productions, another section features top-quality archive titles and INDUSTRY DAYS is a platform designated for film professionals and art students.

 

Měšťanská beseda with several screening auditoriums and a film café remains the main festival spot. Apart from this, some films and events take place in DEPO2015, Café Papírna and other amazing places all around the town.

 

Finále Plzeň is one of the most important cultural events in the region and has earned public recognition and film experts’ respect over the decades. Since 2016, the festival has been organized by theFilm Servis Plzeň, s. r. o. company which is represented and owned by MgA. Eva Veruňková Košařová, the festival’s executive director.

 

We are looking forward to seeing you at screenings or other festival events!
