Those who come to my Movie Barf Monday nights (or did when people still had a social life) will already be familiar with the gorgeous Edison Filmhub and cafe, and their quality selection of contemporary European festival films and classics. The current quarantine restrictions were the perfect excuse for the filmhub to launch EdisONLINE – the first Czech-Slovak film festival VoD service for only 155CZK, the price of a single cinema ticket.

Award-winning Icelandic comedy Woman at War will screen at this year’s Scandi Film Festival starting later this week.
