Febiofest 2020

A new section is spicing up this year’s Prague IFF – Febiofest programme. The Comedy Competition focuses on art-house style comedy pictures and gives a prominent place in the Febiofest programme to entertaining pictures reflecting today’s world. The section’s jury comprises 33 selected film buffs.

Seven pictures from various corners of the planet are in contention. The hilarious Israeli action farce Mossad follows two dangerously incompetent secret agents. The tense and entertaining Argentinian heist movie Heroic Losers is based on a story by the writer of The Secret in Their Eyes. The Macedonian feminist satire God Exists, Her Name is Petrunija earned the European Parliament’s LUX Prize. The merry French picture All About Yves introduces an overly intelligent fridge. Loli Paradicka a romantic comedy from Eastern Slovakia, follows two outsiders as they grow close. The Swedish madcap comedy Call Mom! shows that maturity is not just a matter of age. And the sharp Indian social satire Eeb Allay Ooo! earned the Best Film award at the Mumbai Film Festival.

All films will be screened in the section’s main time slot of 17:30, at Cinema City Slovanský dům.
