CZECH THAT FILM

„Experience the finest selection of new Czech films.“

 

The annual Czech film festival titled “Czech That Film” has been established in 2012. Currently, it is the largest Czech cultural event in the United States and Canada. It is a film festival of best recent Czech films held throughout the Nothern America every year, with a range of screenings and discussion with cast and crew. The five-month-long event keeps growing every year.

The event was established to accommodate increased interest in Czech cinema and culture in the United States and is dedicated to raising profile of current Czech films at an international level. It provides an opportunity for American enthusiasts of global cinema to experience successful new Czech films. Members of American Film Academy and Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and other significant representatives of the film business are regularly among the growing audience each year.

Prominent local community leaders, journalists, American businessmen, representatives of the diplomatic corps, members of Czech and Slovak communities, students, and university faculty members were also in attendance in previous years.

Special events traditionally complement the festival in each city, such as opening and closing night receptions and Q&A sessions with well-established Czech directors.
