One of the biggest and best international film festivals in the Czech Republic is back in Prague for it's 24th year. Febio Fest boasts an outstanding programme of films divided into unique categories, all screened at CineStar cinemas in Prague. This year the festival pays tribute to both current and classic, not to mention hosting an esteemed list of well-known filmmakers and other guests.
One of the Oscar nominated documentary films for 2017 and currently screening at the One World Documentary Film Festival in Prague. Fire at Sea is a sensory feast. Careful attention to detail has been paid to every shot, and every shot tells its own story. It's lack of narration and soundtrack give it an element of extreme realism and objectivity that makes it a stand-out documentary of 2016.
Weiner is an extremely entertaining, and embarrassing, face-palming experience. It throws you right smack in the middle of the circus that is U.S. politics, and takes the 'fly on a wall' approach one step further. It's also teeming with dick jokes.
Organised by humanist non-profit organisation and charity People in Need, One World (Jeden svět) is the world's largest human rights documentary film festival and offers an impeccable selection of documentary films surrounding current socio-political and environmental issues, and will take place from 6/03 - 15/03 in independent cinemas across the Czech capital.
The crazed and controversial German industrial outfit Rammstein will have their ground-breaking 2012 Paris concert shown in special screenings on March 23 at 20:30 in Kino Aero, Kino Svetozor, and Bio OKO.
Probably one of the most fun and tongue-in-cheek festivals in Prague. From Tuesday 28/02 - Sunday 05/03, the Shockproof Film Festival (Festival otrlého diváka) is dedicated to filth, schlock, comedy, horror, B-grade, X-rated - the most bizarre titles from ancient cult classics to present day. In its 13th year, the festival has a whole new host of titles to offer the eager cinema goer, as well as some old faithfuls. It's an insanely interactive festival. Almost like a 21st century rebirth of the classic 'Cinema of Attractions'.
Although Netflix has been around for a while, it's still reasonably new in the land of Czechia. Ever see articles recommending new titles that don't seem to exist? Majority of articles that you see online are about U.S. or U.K. releases. The Czech Netflix has never offered a huge selection when compared with the latter, but it's getting better, and I'd actually recommend paying the money and subscribing now. I think it's only going to go up from here. And this weekend, the weather will be sh-t. Totally sh-t. So stay in, order pizza and watch some of these recently added gems.
