Tips for Saturday

Karel Zeman, as you may not know him - 11:30 a.m. in the Schwarzenberg Hall

Come and see Film Adventurer Karel Zeman, a unique documentary about the pioneer of special film effects! Some of Zeman’s most famous “disciples”, such as Terry Gilliam, Tim Burton or Koji Yamamura, appear in the film to express their admiration of the author and event to confess that they not only draw on Zeman’s style but also like to “copy” him from time to time.


Broaden your horizons - 1 p.m. at the J. K. Tyl Theatre

The screening series of new Czech films entitled Czech Horizon II. is accompanied by Czech films competing in the international competition. All these films will be vying for your votes in the battle for the viewers’ choice award for the best Czech film of the festival! Czech animation had a really good year – the screening includes for example the highly artistic postgraduate film Orfea, the puppet-animated slapstick-tragedy BabyBox and a new music video for the band The Tap Tap.


Coffee with the animators - 1:30 p.m. in the House of Animation

It has already become an Anifilm tradition to hold moderated meetings with the authors of films competing at the festival. This year will be no exception. The last meeting takes place today at half past one on the ground floor of the House of Animation, so be sure not to miss it! Not only can you personally meet and get to know the directors whose films made it to the competition, but also enjoy a cup of coffee on the house.


KIV. What can it be?

As you surely know, this year is the 700th anniversary of the birth of one of the most inspiring figures of Czech and European history – Charles IV. What you may not know yet is that Czech Television prepared a real treat for the anniversary: an interactive comics with game elements. The project will be introduced by the authors themselves, including the graphic artist Matyáš Trnka, today at 2:30 p.m. at the Puppet. Their concept combines classic drawing, elements of traditional animation and slow narration with the interactivity of games. The project primarily aims to interest people in Charles IV – the man and in the atmosphere of the High Middle Ages, which the Holy Roman Emperor embodies for us.
