Finále Plzeň ofrece un curso intensivo en cine checo reciente
My Century, de Theodora Remundová

Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

In the wake of the Czech Film Critics’ Awards (see the news) and the Czech Lions (see the news), the annual showcase of domestic cinema known as Finále Plzeň (11-16 April) will not only serve to round off the film world’s appreciation of the oeuvres of the past year (in this case acknowledged by an array of international professionals), but it will also kick off a new season by introducing a number of pre-premieres. This intense focus on Czech cinema in one single location makes Finále Plzeň the most comprehensive overview of domestic production.

. In addition to feature films (live action, animated and documentary) and student shorts, Finále Plzeň will also spotlight local television production, most notably Petr Zelenka’s comedy series Dubbing Street and the comedy series Most! by Jan Prušinovský, which recently emerged as Czech Television’s most-watched series of the last few years, both on TV screens and online. They will be joined by other local television productions, in both serial and film formats, with crime fare being particularly prevalent.

A special section is being dedicated to two episodic projects: one is the most recent project by the most prolific Slovakian director working today, Peter Bebjak, a dystopian web series called The Spot, about a mysterious disease that has wiped out the adult population. The other one is another project by Czech Television, The Ruination of Dejvice Theater, a comedy series about how difficult it is for one particular Prague theatre to stay afloat, written and directed by its former artistic director Miroslav Krobot, with the theatre’s actual troupe and crew starring as on-screen versions of themselves.

The First Catch programming section will introduce audiences to the newest films for the very first time. The raft of upcoming movies includes Tereza Kopáčová’s comedy When Cows Fly, about fat shaming, body image and burlesque; Slovakian director Peter Kerekes’ documentary about the capitalistic tendencies of Czech entrepreneur Tomáš Baťa, BATAstories [+lee también:

, a drama about the creation of Cyrano de Bergerac, by French director Alexis Michalik; and the Romanian-Czech drama Heads and Tails by Nicolae Constantin Tănase.

The Czech Republic has been participating enthusiastically in many international projects, which will be reflected in a section with a somewhat self-explanatory title, Czech Traces in International Co-productions. One of the most successful projects of the last season is Adina Pintilie’s Touch Me Not [+lee también:
