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.

9/10 Aussie Film Fest presented a special screening of 2015’s The Dressmaker in Kino Lucerna last Friday in Prague and set the standards high for the upcoming festival from November 18-22. A promising introduction to the young festival with a well-received film that captures the spirit and weirdness of Australia.
