Kim Novak - the star of Hitchcock’s Vertigo is coming to Febiofest

Kim Novak

Traditionally Febiofest has welcomed renowned celebrities from all over the world. Past visitors have included Geraldine Chaplin, Claudia Cardinale and Sandrine Bonnaire, directors Richard Lester, Alan Parker, Wim Wenders and Roman Polanski as well as by dozens of famous actors, actresses and other filmmakers. Febiofest will mark Kim Novak’s first official visit to the Czech Republic. Novak was the star of movies that are considered to be among the jewels of Hollywood production and has appeared alongside James Stewart, Frank Sinatra, Kirk Douglas, William Holden and Jack Lemmon. 

“We’re very happy to be able to welcome to Prague the legend of the silver screen, an American actress with Czech roots, Kim Novak, who represents Hollywood‘s Golden Age. In the history of cinema, she was a star at a time when films did not look like computer games or comics, but were full of mystery and explored the corners of human soul,“ says program director Hana Cielová. Some of them, including Vertigo, Picnic and Middle of the Night will be presented within the framework of a special retrospective – A Tribute to Kim Novak. “In the era of digitalization when we’re being flooded by low-budget movies, cheap video productions which are often not even intended to be shown in theatres, these movies remind us that filmmakers used to work with image, light and shadow, and with each quiver of a human face. We can’t wait to see the movies selected for this retrospective on the big screen where they belong,” adds program director, Štefan Uhrík. During the ceremonial event the actress, born in Chicago to Czech parents, will be awarded the Kristian for her Contribution to World Cinema.
