Festival Days of European Film has already started

The idea to show the Czech audience the best of contemporary European cinematography has been already successfully running for 13 years, and this year is not the exception. The festival ?Days of European Film” has started with the screening of Ken Loach movie “The wind that shakes the barley”. There are presented around 50 long and short all genres films every year, very often not older than four years and many of them won an international award. The films are shown in their original version and they are simultaneously translated into Czech through headphones! Most of them have also Czech subtitles.

The festival takes place in two cinemas. Cinema Aero, located in the street Biskupcova 31 (trams 1, 9, 16 to stop Ohrada), and Cinema Svetozor, street Vodickova 41 (metro A station Mustek or trams to stop Vaclavske Namesti). The price for ticket is 90 CZK for any film.

Some films will be presented by their filmmakers who will enjoy discussing it with the audience afterwards. Accompanying event includes a “Marathon of European Film” (twice!), which is weekend all-night screening of five films, and a discussion. This marathon will take place on Saturday Jan 27 in cinema Svetozor and a week later on Feb 3 in cinema Aero. The tickets to the marathon cost 150 CZK for the whole night.

After the festival ends on Feb 4, It starts in Brno the next day, and will last until Feb 13.
