The Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles is pleased to announce the first annual Czech Filmfest 2012 which will take place at the Cinefamily in Hollywood on May 16 – 24, 2012. The festival will introduce both new and classic Czech movies to film audiences in Los Angeles and several successful directors and actors will be present to promote their films.
"Czech cinema has always been a passion for The Cinefamily. It's some of the most playful, cinematic, dynamic, and we think underappreciated national lineages in the film world. It's exciting to work with the Czech Consulate in LA to put on what we hope to be an annual festival celebrating both the classics we love, and the films today that continue that fine tradition"--Hadrian Belove, The Cinefamily
The festival will officially kick-off with disturbingly relevant dark thriller “Walking Too Fast” (2010) from director Radim Špaček, who will answer questions after the screening, followed by the opening night reception on May 17. The film achieved critical success in Europe and won five Czech Lions (the Czech Oscars), including best picture from the Czech Film Academy, among many other awards.
The fest will also include “Four Suns” (2012), directed by esteemed award-winner Bohdan Sláma, which shows the self-destructive nature of humanity. The film premiered at the Sundance Festival this past January. Director Tomáš Luňák will personally introduce his animated picture “Alois Nebel” (2011), the Czech entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the most recent Academy Awards.
Concluding the festival will be the musical “Rhythm on My Heels” (2009) at the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles. Based on “The Tenor Saxophonist’s Story” by Josef Škovorecký, the story shows the trials of love that take place in 1950s Czechoslovakia. Director Andrea Sedláčková and actors Marika Šoposká, Jan Maxián, Margareta Hrůza and Berenika Kohoutová will attend and perform songs from the film accompanied by famous Czech jazz pianist Emil Viklický.
