The 50th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival Is A Celebration Of Film Fans
The 50th Karlovy Vary IFF will take place between July 3 and 11, 2015. The jubilee anniversary of the festival will be a celebration of cinematography open to the general public.
The festival tradition stretches all the way back to 1946 when the first, non-competitive showcase of films was held in Karlovy Vary and Mariánské Lázně. The festival’s modern history began with the arrival of a team of organisers centred around Karlovy Vary IFF president Jiří Bartoška and artistic director Eva Zaoralová. More than two decades of successful development have shown that the intention of the state at the time to cancel the Karlovy Vary festival would have been short sighted. The festival earned itself a place among the elite international film festivals of the highest category, and most importantly it found a niche of its own. The festival is famous for its inimitable atmosphere, its openness to film lovers and its relaxed environment in which film stars and regular viewers can meet in one room.
It is for these reasons that the opening of the 50th Karlovy Vary IFF has been conceived as a celebration of film and of the film fans who have been coming to the festival for the last 22 years and who have made it exceptional.
The ceremonial commencement of the Karlovy Vary IFF on July 3, 2015, will have a special programme. Following the opening ceremony and the screening of the opening film there will be a big festival party in the area around the Thermal Hotel and in the city streets. Every visitor, guest and viewer can attend the celebration. The “film night” events are organised in cooperation with the partners of the KVIFF.
A simple symbol – a paper bowtie or red make-up – will make everyone who wants to take part in the celebrations a VIP guest. Because in Karlovy Vary everyone can be a star!
