This year's Aussie and Kiwi Film Fest opener is a heartwarming (true) love story of epic proportion. Ali's Wedding, although sometimes a little too sweet for my taste, is an ambitious and refreshingly unconventional love story of a minority that's still very misunderstood in Australia.
Prague's Aussie and Kiwi Film Festival is now in its fourth year and continues to showcase the best of the best in feature films, documentaries, and short films that Australia and New Zealand have to offer. This year's festival will take place from the 16th-22nd of November in Prague's Kino Lucerna and Kino Ponrepo.
The 18th Mezipatra Queer Film Festival is upon us and as always, promises to be an exciting and diverse week of films, debates, and parties based around the LGBTI community. The festival will take place in Prague from November 2 - 9, and in Brno from November 10 - 17.
Be2Can distribution will host the premiere of the new Yorgos Lanthimos film The Killing of a Sacred Deer, starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman, on November 1 in Prague's Kino Svetozor.
Bill Murray - actor, comedian, pop culture icon, and all-round good guy has probably been your favourite person at some point or another. From 24/10 - 29/10, Prague's Bio OKO will screen 9 carefully selected gems from the actor's rewarding film career, which has spanned over 40 years and seen collaboration with great directors like Wes Anderson, Jim Jarmusch, Sofia Coppola and more. Check out some of our recommendations below.
Lynne Ramsay's hallucinatory revenge drama seems like a quiet tribute to Taxi Driver, with a wonderfully raw and stripped down performance from Joaquin Phoenix. There's a welcoming focus on primitive emotion rather than balls-out action.
Currently screening at Prague's Be2Can, The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a wild, unconventional, and wholly unpredictable horror film with tremendous psychological depth, which somehow blends seamlessly with director Yorgos Lanthimos' signature quickfire wit and dialogue.
