The recently cancelled Karlovy Vary International Film Festival has organised the quarantine-friendly alternative KVIFF at Your Cinema film event which will see 16 films screen in 96 cinemas across the Czech Republic from July 3 – 11.
Prague-based filmmaker Gem Deger’s debut feature film Playdurizm has just dropped its first neon-blazed trailer, and it looks sufficiently weird and wild.
Kino 35, the French Institute’s cinema in Prague, like many others, recently reopened and will host a number of free film screenings leading up to summer with the full programme just announced. All screenings will have English subtitles.
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.
Drive-in cinemas are back in the Czech capital for the first time in 20 years! Perhaps this is one of the better things to arise out of quarantine? Enjoy the cinema experience from the safety of your own car. Don’t have one? Might be time to invest!
To get you in the mood for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22nd, check out this list of gorgeous titles guaranteed to give you some feels.

Farsi Cinema Center (FCC) recently introduced their new online streaming space Watch Nook – a unique space to watch short films from the Farsi-speaking world, including those from filmmakers from Iran, Tajikistan and Afghanistan, either living within those countries or from abroad.
Bored in quarantine? Never fear! The final block of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli films have now been added to Netflix CZ on April 1st. Classics like Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo and many more will join a host of other films already available to stream on the service.
Bored of the quarantine yet? I am too. Home office seems like a great idea in theory… but when you factor in children, a lot of work (or lack of work) and more, you need a bit of an escape. Here are ten films to (hopefully) get you through covid-19. BUT, before you get watching, can I make a suggestion?
Although far from perfect, the representation of women in film has improved in recent years. From Alex Garland’s female led sci-fi Annihilation to Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, there are a lot of relatively recent films to remind you that women in film are here, and they’re here to stay. You should probably listen to what they have to say! The following are all (currently) available to stream in the Czech Republic. Get to it.
