New German serial killer film The Golden Glove will hit Czech cinemas this Thursday (17/10) and is an insanely violent portrait of the infamous serial killer, which is absolutely worth seeing... but don't say I didn't warn you.
Berlinale winner Synonyms is a wonderfully quirky if not unquestionably complicated film that will frustrate you at times, but ultimately leave you wanting more of its running spitfire dialogue on identity and nationalism.
Film Europe's Be2Can festival is here again and promises an eclectic selection of international festival films that will surprise, shock and wow even the most avid cinema-goer.
The Film is GREAT festival will showcase four new British films from the 10th to the 16th of June to celebrate the landmark 100th anniversary of the British Embassy in the Czech Republic.
Film Europe is opening a brand new film venue in Prague's city centre this week - Edison filmhub will serve as a place for quality cinema, discussions, seminars and good coffee.
I'm well aware that this list is coming a little late, but better late than never. As usual, this one covers my top picks for titles released in the Czech Republic during 2018, which also includes festival screenings and those released on streaming services like Netflix. So unfortunately, The Favourite is not here (it was just released and you should definitely go and see it) and Suspiria is not here either (if it was, then it would probably be close to the top). Nevertheless, there were some impressive films that popped up in our little country last year, and some of them we even saw before the rest of the world.
Award-winning Icelandic comedy Woman at War will screen at this year's Scandi Film Festival starting later this week.
