Tips on Wednesday
Face to Face
From today to Saturday, you can attend Meet the Filmmakers, a series of informal meetings in the Festival Tent. These afternoon get-togethers with directors of films competing at the festival will be moderated by the festival’s programme director Pavel Horáček and curator Eliška Děcká. You’ll have a rare opportunity to meet these filmmakers in person and ask them your own questions. We have been holding these popular meetings for several years now and are thrilled to see that more and more filmmakers are interested in participating every year. You’ll find the Festival Tent in the Castle Park. The meetings will begin at 2:00 p.m. every day except Saturday, 5 May, when it will begin an hour later.
Game and VR Zone
Měšťanská beseda, 12:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Come visit the festival’s Game and VR Zone on the 1st floor of Měšťanská beseda in the Masaryk Square. You can immerse yourself in VR games (Rick and Morty, Google’s Tilt Brush, Dreams of Dalí, etc.), play computer games competing in the International Competition (Cuphead, CHUCHEL, Gorogoa, etc.), or get inspired by VR films (Asteroids!, Nothing Happens, Song of the Sea, etc.).
Cinema in the Spa
This year, we decided to expand the programme in the Aurora Cinema, which you’ll find, as always, in the spa complex at the west end of Třeboň in the peace and quiet of a large park sprawling on the bank of the Svět Lake. This means that the Aurora Cinema becomes another full-fledged screening venue of the festival with several daily screenings. Starting tomorrow, it will offer various feature and short films. We will be screening various films competing in the International Competition as well as films included in the accompanying programme, some for kids, others for grown-ups. So spice up your festival experience with Aurora’s spa atmosphere and come see, for example, Wes Anderson’s eagerly-awaited new animated film Isle of Dogs, the cult film The Lego Movie, or Švankmajer’s allegedly last feature film Insects.
