The 8th Annual Czech and Slovak Film Festival of Australia will be taking place this year in two new formats – Drive-in Cinema and online. This year, guests will have the chance to catch a variety of films, both new and old, long and short – all related to the theme ‘vision‘.
While 2020 may have been a bumpy ride, that hasn’t stopped the Czech and Slovak Film Festival of Australia from hitting the big screen this year, this time at the Village Cinemas Coburg Drive-In in Melbourne on the 28 November, 2 December and 5 December 2020. The festival will be kicking off on 28th November with a feature film debut from writer-director-producer duo David Lanka and Martin Müller, Listen / Poslouchej.
For those who can’t make it to the Drive-In Cinema, there will also be an online component this year. From the 1 – 14 December, film-enthusiasts will be able to see a total of four feature films that present various perspectives of Czech and Slovak history and styles of cinema, through The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) – from new-release Havel (Slávek Horák, 2020), providing a fictional portrayal of the visionary Czech playwright turned politician Václav Havel, to archival films, such as Ikarie XB-1 (Jindrich Polák, 1963), regularly referred to as one of the best and most influential films of the sci-fi genre.
Whether from the comfort of your car, or at home online, don’t miss the chance to see some filmic jewels from the Czech and Slovak Republics at this years CaSFFA.
The Embassy of the Czech Republic is happy to be able to support this years festival, as in years past.
