Working with the Jablonec-based Czech Mint, Febiofest is this year paying tribute to the legendary actor and entertainer Vladimír Menšík by minting a commemorative medal in his honor. This follows previous tributes to Karel Fiala, alias Lemonade Joe, and Rudolf Hrušínský. The first gold commemorative medals have been presented at the festival’s main press conference to his wife Olga and daughter Martina and film fans can purchase them at the Czech Mint. A limited edition of only 60 gold medals weighing a quarter of an ounce and priced at CZK 13,950 will be supplemented by 200 silver medals weighing 10 grams and going for CZK 950. “The reverse side of the medal, on which the maker has, with the kind permission of the family, placed the actor’s self-portrait, is unique,” said the marketing manager of the Czech Mint, Lukáš Jokl. The actor’s daughter Martina Menšíková adds: “His own handiwork makes the medal more valuable.” As last year, this year film fans can once again vote on which actor deserves to receive this honor within the next edition of Febiofest. Among the nominees are Jiří Kodet and Miroslav Horníček. Simultaneously with the opening of Febiofest, the Mint will launch voting on March 23 at www.ceskamincovna.cz/febiofest. Five movie buffs will be rewarded with Vladimír Menšík silver medals
