Bollywood Film Festival in Prague

Bollywood Film Festival in Prague Once a year, Prague celebrates India’s massive film industry, by organizing Bollywood Film Festival, where we present a wide range of movies that are somehow influential in India. 14 films are screened, among them Krrish (a superhero Krishna has to save a world), Dhoom 2 (policemen Jai and Ali are trying to catch Mr. A all the way to Rio de Janeiro, or Zubeida (young woman fighting for her freedom and her new love).

This year the festival takes place at Svetozor cinema, from 11th to 14th October. It is also a reminder of India’s 60 years of independence anniversary (by the way, the independence celebration already happened on 15th August at Strelecky Ostrov).

The festival started five years ago when several students of Film and TV Department of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague organized screening of Bollywood movies for other students, and it became so popular that they organized whole festival for the next year.

Svetozor cinema is located at Vodickova 41, very close to the middle of Wencelas Square. There are going to be Indian food served during the festival. Films are in two screening rooms, and the entry fee is either 80 or 100 CZK (3€), depending in which room the movie is going to be shown. The accompanying program includes Bollywood party in P.M. Club; Trojicka 8, and the entrance fee 150 CZK (5 €).

The films are in Czech translation, with English subtitles.
