This year, the Kingfisher will truly be the messenger of spring! Finale Plzen Film Festival is going through a re-birth. New management brings in new and modern take on the tradition. Original program draws inspiration from renown international festivals and Finale Plzen is also the only similar Czech platform that follows both cinema and TV and online streaming production.
Finale Plzen and its 30th edition will still feature competitions assessed by international jury of experts. The winners will leave with a Golden Kingfisher. The festival offers an overview of Czech feature length live action and animated films, documentaries and television projects.
Finale Plzen is one of the most important events of the region. Throughout the years of its existence it earned both great interest of audience and respect among film professionals.
The previous edition, 2016, was the first one with a new organizer - Film Servis Plzen s.r.o., represented and owned by the former executive director of the festival, MgA. Eva Veruňková Košařová. Changes in management came with a new logo, provided by a Prague-based graphic design studio Carton Clan, s.r.o.
Finale Plzen will take place from 20th to 26th April 2017. Apart from the competition section it will showcase all the live action and animated feature films made in the Czech republic in the past 12 months, a selection of Czech documentaries and it will present new Czech and Slovak films.
The festival is proud to present films in premier or pre-premiers, films made in Czech co-production as well as accompanying program including talk-shows, readings, parties, concerts and fashion market.
ZOOM will bring a peek into European production and the festival will feature the best of the archives. INDUSTRY DAYS are a platform film professionals and art students should not miss.
As has become a tradition, the main festival venue will be Měšťanská beseda in Pilsen, offering several screening halls and a film café, with an additional event space in DEPO2015.
We are looking forward to seeing you on screenings and at our events!
