Colonnade, movies and parties – 52nd Karlovy Vary!

It´s here! The 52nd International Film Festival starting this Friday, June 30th! Like every year, film fans, world journalists, filmmakers and actors will be coming to the biggest Czech film festival spa town. This year, Uma Thurman will receive The Festival President´s Award and will kick off several film screenings, including both parts of the cult movie Kill Bill. You can also look forward to actor Jeremy Renner, who will be presenting his latest movie Wind River, or the Oscar star of the movie Manchester by the Sea – Cassey Affleck. 

The opening film of the festival will be the American romantic comedy The Big Sick with the screenplay based on an experience of Pakistani married couple Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani. The story revolves around the young Pakistani Kumail, who avoids all of those „parents-perfect-match-girls“ and falls in love with a white American girl Emily. The film was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where critics appreciated the indifference and sincerity of the narrative story, that is not alike romantic cliché. Worth noticing are also other American movies, such as already mentioned Wind River, awarded in Un Certain Regard section during this year´s Cannes festival; the latest film by Sofia Coppoly – The Beguiled – with Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell in the lead role; or crazy midnight Baby Driver by Antman´s director Edgar Wright. The festival will also host the latest movies of festival favorites such as the Belarussian director Sergei Loznica with Austerlitz or Brittish Mark Cousin with Stockholm, My Love. In the field of the documentary film competition, the controversial portrait of the Czech neo-Nazi – The White World According to Daliborek – by Vit Klusák will be presented; you will also have a chance to see some Czech premieres such as Little Crusader with Karel Roden or Absence of Closeness with Jana Plodková. The debuts at the festival will include, among others, a peculiar Indian film Ralang Road, that will be part of the main competition and Freak Show by British producer and wife of Sting Trudie Styler with the theme of queer.
Aeroport, the well-known party place organized by Aerofilms, will move to a new address – Zahradni 23. Every evening you will have a chance to be part of a unique musical experience, whether it´s a DJ set of Floex, Nobody´s Addict tour, a party with djs of Radio 1 or Radio Wave or famous Prague labels Harmony and Komiks.
