THE CLOSING CEREMONY ON THURSDAY 23 SEPTEMBER MARKED THE CULMINATION OF THE 28TH PRAGUE IFF – FEBIOFEST.

The Swedish film Charter about a mother fighting for her children won the Main Competition. The jury decided to award a Special Mention to the film Listen, which tells the story of a Portuguese family living on the outskirts of London. Dinner in America was selected by an audience jury as the best comedy in the Comedy Competition. The Amnesty International Febiofest Award 2021 went to Exile, a film which reflects on issues around immigration and integration. A Special Mention in this section was awarded to the hopeful story of an Iranian family in Finland, Any Day Now.

The gala evening at the Cinema City Slovanský dům, compered by Jolana Voldánová, ended with a Closing Film – the Oscar-winning drama The Father with Anthony Hopkins in the leading role.

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.
