“Prague IFF – Febiofest 2021 unambiguously showed that film fans love coming back to the cinemas, despite various restrictions, and that they want to have fun – our Comedy Competition was immensely popular this year. Many screenings were introduced personally by the creators of those films, and many were followed by Q&A sessions with the audience, who showed great perceptiveness and curiosity. We’re very happy that we managed to keep the off-line version of the festival, because that is simply irreplaceable: the festival is not only about watching the films – the shared experience, the chance to meet the filmmakers, to reflect on the films together, are all also an integral part of what makes the festival great. And fortunately, we did have all of this in the end,” said the Executive and Artistic Director of Prague IFF – Febiofest Marta Švecová Lamperová.
The Prague part of this year’s Febiofest is over, however the Febiofest Regions Tour is in full swing. Viewers in Prostějov, Hradec Králové, Olomouc, Česke Budějovice, Brno, Beroun, Děčín, Zlín, Liberec, and Ostrava will have further opportunities to experience the best of current cinema; the Regions programme will be closed at a Closing Ceremony in Ostrava on 8 October with a screening of Karel.
