Czech Republic's annual queer film festival Mezipatra recently started a crowdfunding campaign on hithit.com to raise funds for a new LGBTQ community centre in Vršovice's Patra bar and cafe, and needs your support!
Festival darling Beach Rats is a coming-of-age story that is sometimes dreary but often elevated by a superb performance by Harris Dickinson.
Tom of Finland is a surprisingly light-hearted biopic of the artist behind the revolutionary Tom of Finland cartoons. A good opener for the 18th Mezipatra Queer Film Festival and a strong foundation for this year's 'Be Your Own Champion' motto.
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.
The Ornithologist is an experimental film by award winning Portuguese director João Pedro Rodrigues (The Last Time I Saw Macao) about one man’s journey to sainthood through the Portuguese wilderness. Gorgeous cinematography and dynamic use of sound make this an absolute treat for the senses even if the narrative is somewhat confusing at times - ok, so it’s extremely confusing at times but somehow I think that was the whole point.
The 17th Mezipatra Queer Film Festival kicks off today with a heap of films, workshops, exhibitions, decent parties, and an all-round healthy dose of queer culture - all under the umbrella of this years theme, The Limits of Liberty. The official festival runs from Thursday 3-10 November in Prague and 11-18 November in Brno, but keep an eye out for other events in Olomouc, Ostrava and other places.
