Czech and Slovak

Film Festival

WA 2015

It was a great pleasure to welcome you all to the 2nd Czech and Slovak Film Festival in Sydney, and for the first time in Perth.

There was something for everyone, films to make you laugh, cry, to inspire you and to leave you in awe. 

This year, for the first time, we also showcased the best of young cinematic talent of the graduating students from the Czech and Slovak Film Academies FAM, UTB and FTF VSMU.

In addition to these, we also featured three of the best and much loved films of master trick animator karel Zeman. These three classics have been painstakingly restored and digitalized and we once again screened them in collaboration with the UTS faculty of Design, Architecture and Building. Same as last year, these screenings were opened to general public and free of charge.
