OFF

While the gala opening of the 24th edition of the IFF Prague – Febiofest was taking place on Thursday evening the organisers received news from the operator of the Radlická kulturní sportovna arts and sports complex that, according to a statement by the Buildings Office of the Prague 5 District Authority dated 23. 3. 2017, it is not possible to continue using the space for the purposes of operating arts events.

In response to this situation the festival has moved discussions and lectures to the Kavárna co hledá jméno café and audio visual installations to the festival cinema CineStar Praha – Anděl. It has also cancelled the entire musical programme planned for the Radlická kulturní sportovna complex. All accompanying events at venues other than Radlická kulturní sportovna will go ahead as planned. Czechoslovak posters for American films of the 1970s and 1980s will be on display from March 24th to April 2nd at the Portheimka gallery, while an exhibition entitled The Second Muse, or When Actors and Singers Paint and Take Photographs will be held at the Strahov Monastery Winter Refectory from March 25th to April 30th.
