This year’s IFF Prague – Febiofest, dressed in a new visual identity,
will take place on 17-24 September 2021
Like last year, the Prague International Film Festival – Febiofest has
been moved to the autumn of this year, instead of its traditional spring
dates. The 28th edition of one of Prague’s – and the Czech Republic’s –
biggest film events will be held on 17-24 September 2021 in the
Slovanský dům palace in the heart of Prague, with renditions in other
Czech cities to follow afterwards. The organizers have decided to move
the dates in accordance with the current situation and the predictions
regarding government restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of
Covid-19. A new visual style for this year’s festival, created once
again by Dynamo, has been revealed together with the new dates.
_”Dear friends, partners, film lovers, I am very happy to say the 28th
Prague International Film Festival – Febiofest has been planned and
prepared. However, the situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic has
proved to be tragic, similarly to last year. Therefore, we decided once
again to move the Festival to a new date, so that we all will be able to
enjoy it fully. I hope and believe many of you will visit our festival
this September and enjoy all that we have prepared for you this year,”_
says the director of IFF Prague – Febiofest Kamil Spáčil.
In the meantime, IFF Prague – Febiofest will invite viewers to several
special screenings, so they will not be robbed of all contact with the
best of domestic and international cinema.
Furthermore, the change in dates might be welcome news for amateur
filmmakers, including school teams, who want to enter their films and
videos in the amateur short film competition YOU ARE THE FILMMAKER. They
now have additional time to apply and work on their renditions of this
year’s theme, MY CITY, as the deadline for applications has been
extended to 31 May 2021.
