Febiofest 2020

The Main Competition at the Prague IFF – Febiofest takes a new form this year. For the first time the selection of the freshest authorial films by emerging names in world cinema is being judged by an expert jury comprising three professional filmmakers.

The jurors are the director, screenwriter and producer Slávek Horák, director and screenwriter Beata Parkanová and actress Anna Polívková. Two of them will introduce one of their own films at Febiofest: Slávek Horák his recently released Havel and Beata Parkanová her debut Moments.

Five titles are in the running in the Main Competition this year. Three – Servants, Hope and Kill it and Leave This Town – premiered at this year’s Berlinale. Martin Eden, an adaption of a Jack London novel, and the drama You Will Die at 20 picked up prizes in Venice last year.

We will screen Competition films in our main slot at 20:30 at Cinema City Slovanský dům. The programme section can be found here.
