Besides this, a selection of current German movies will join Czech films on the festival’s screens in order to present different views of the East and the West 30 years after the fall of the Iron Curtain. They include the documentary Once We Are Dancing by Dirk Heth and Dirk Lienig, and Teresa Hoerl’s Nothing More Perfect.

In addition, the festival retains its industry strand: on the menu are a pitching event that will present current domestic works in progress, Czech Film Springboard; a discussion on the topic of festival distribution of short films and distribution of Czech films on VoD and streaming platforms; and a lecture for film producers dedicated to integrated security on sets.
