The Prague International Film Festival – Febiofest will screen 90 films during its 29th edition (28 April-4 May). “The Prague IFF – Febiofest has always tried to respond to current events in society, and this year will be no different. Given the shocking, aggressive war waged by Russia against Ukraine, which is a global threat affecting us all, we have decided to create a special section called ‘Ukraine: Central Europe’. Art cannot save lives, but it can change our worldview. And in this case, it can help specific people. All proceeds from the admissions for this special section will be donated in support of humanitarian organisations and Ukrainian artists,” says Marta Švecová Lamperová, the artistic director of the Prague IFF – Febiofest.

and Madiano Marcheti’s Madalena, among others). Meanwhile, the TV Now section will premiere solely domestic series: Dan Wlodarczyk’s Morning Glory, about families that are following alternative lifestyles asking the question of where the boundary lies between individual freedom and societal norms; Jan Hřebejk’s miniseries Behind the Curtain, which reflects on changing social and gender roles; and Czech Television’s first webseries, tbh, about the searingly topical issues that secondary-school students are currently facing. The Prague International Film Festival – Febiofest is also running a retrospective of Dutch provocateur Alex van Warmerdam, including Grimm Re-edit. For the second year running, a special section is being dedicated to VR works, this year reaching beyond the format of 360° films and adding more interactive fare plucked from Venice, Sundance and Tribeca.
