Recent Oscar winner Call Me By Your Name will screen at the 25th Prague International Film Festival (Febio Fest) as a part of the festival’s queer section.
The film, which earned itself three nominations and a win for Best Adapted Screenplay at this year’s Oscars, is directed by renowned Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) and based on the book by André Aciman. Call Me By Your Name is set in the 1980s and sees a complicated relationship develop between 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer), a student of Elio’s professor father. Check out the trailer below.
The film has received praise from critics worldwide after its Sundance premiere and a string of awards and nominations. It’s been dubbed the new Moonlight or Carol by senior IndieWire critic David Erhlich.
Call Me By Your Name will screen in Czech cinemas for the first time next week in the Prague International Film Festival (Febiofest) which will take place from 15 – 23 of March in Cinestar Anděl. Full programme details coming soon.
