A diverse programme of Czech films in the Saxon capital

1st Czech Film Week in Dresden, 20 – 26 October 2011

On Thursday 20 October 2011 the 1st Czech Film Week will start up in two Dresden cinemas Thalia and Programmkino Ost. They will be introducing new feature and documentary films, humorous short films and a Bohdan Sláma retrospective. The director will personally be participating in a debate on his films with film journalist Andreas Körner (Sächsische Zeitung).
The 1st Czech Film Week is taking place as part of the 13th Days of Czech and German Culture, the largest presentation of Czech culture in Germany. The presentation will get under way on Thursday 20 October with Robert Sedláček’s black comedy Men in the Rut. A total of 14 feature films will be ranked into several categories that represent current Czech cinematography. Radim Špaček’s Walking Too Fast, winner of five Czech Lion awards, Václav Kadrnka’s debut Eighty Letters, which celebrated its world premiere at this year’s Berlinale, and Jan Hřebejk’s Kawasaki’s Rose, awarded at the Berlinale in 2010, will be appearing in New Films.
The Focus on Czech Documentary! Category will present five Czech documentaries, mostly highlighting the young generation of Czech documentarists: Erika Hníková'sThe Matchmaking Mayor enjoyed enormous success with the audiences at Berlinale and, just like her debut, I Guess We'll Meet at the Eurocamp, it deals with rural Czech (respectively Slovak) life. Welcome to North Korea by Linda Jablonská recounts a trip to the Socialist past which is still present and Vít Klusák’s All for the Good of the World and Nošovice presents a stylised image of a village that is coming to terms with an automobile factory. In the film See You in Denver from Jan Šikl’s Private Century series the Dresden audience will see a fascinating story of several generations in one Prague family shown within one hour.
Under the title Fein.Košt – Fine Shorts in Ost Cinema the audience will be able to look forward to a Graffiti-tiger who is looking for a lost love on the walls of Prague's buildings, a hairdresser collecting the hair of one particular customer, the tragic love story between Brighton and Ústí nad Labem and one young girl who can't look after her grandmother – an entertaining, exciting and interesting selection of the latest in German and Czech short films.
The Retrospective of Bohdan Sláma’s films will definitely be among the highlights of the programme, which will be complemented by a filmtalk with the director and his debate with a film journalist on the theme of Bohdan Sláma – a Realist in Film?

We would like to thank our partners, without the 1st Czech Film Week in Dresden would not have been possible: The Brücke/Most Foundation, AG Kurzfilm, the Schola Ludus e.V. Czech-German-Slovak educational association, Czech Centre Berlín, Haus der Kirche/Dreikönigskirche, the Czech General Consulate in Dresden, The Czech Ministry of Culture, The Czech State Fund and Budweiser Budvar.
