Welcome! It is a great honor for me to invite you to the 7th edition of the annual Czech That Film festival.
Czech That Film is back!
It is a great honor for me to invite you to the 7th edition of the annual Czech That Film festival. Time flies by quickly and it seems like it was just yesterday when we started our effort to introduce the best new Czech films in the United States in 2012.
The festival has been growing each year ever since and will reach 17 American and 2 Canadian cities this year, for the first time visiting Memphis and Pittsburgh. This showcase of the best what the current Czech cinema has to offer has become the largest and the most successful annual presentation of Czech culture here in North America.
We look forward to introducing popular Czech films of 2017 such as Ice Mother (Bába z ledu), Barefoot (Po strništi bos), Quartette (Kvarteto), Family Friend (Rodinný přítel), Masaryk, Milada and several others.
I am also proud to announce that the two most successfull film directors of Czech cinema since the Velvet revolution, Jan Svěrák and Jan Hřebejk, agreed to participate in the festival this year. Both of them with several other guests will visit North America this spring.
We are celebrating 100 years of independent Czechslovakia in 2018 and this centenial will be reflected in the festival as well. Please, join us in a celebration of the 7th year of Czech That Film festival and enjoy Czech movies which we love very much.
