Program;

The Graffitiger (2010) 10 mins. Animation
Dir: Libor Pixa (Director, screenwriter, animator, designer)

The film Graffitiger is a witty and a slightly melancholic story of a lonely graffiti-tiger, whose home-place are walls and facades of Prague buildings. The city, full of dirty corners and streets covered with graffities, is a wild jungle, where the tiger looks for his lost love. The thrilling and on the other hand cheerful story is made by using the actractive combination of 2D drawn animation and live action with actors.


Peacock (2105) 27 mins Comedy
Dir: Ondřej Hudeček (Directed, Photographed and Edited)

Bohemia, 19th Century. Ladislav, the mischievous son of a landlord, terrorizes the village with cruel jokes. War breaks and Ladislav is forced to hide in a monastery, where he unexpectedly discovers his hidden desires. He returns home and befriends Jan, a sensitive young poet. Together they experience moments of undiluted happiness. However, passionate Ladislav soon becomes jealous and his endeavor to dominate Jan triggers a series of grievous events... A dramatic history of the rise of one of the most influential Czech writers, paved with flesh, bones and blood. A black comedy based on a true story, a queer literary encyclopedia, and a historical picture book in one.


Girls Full of Eco Emotions (2011) 11 mins. Documentary short.
Dir: Monika Midriaková

Young naive girls are trying to conceive how they can prepare themselves for the end of the world, economy crisis, for living in community and for life itself.


Resort (2105) 26mins Documentary short.
Dir: MARTIN HRUBÝ (WRITER AND DIRECTOR)

At the beginning of the 1960s a secret summer getaway for the communist establishment was developed on the banks of Orlík reservoir. The architecturally unique resort was designed by the most progressive Czech names in the field – they had been purposefully imprisoned to force them to work on state projects. In the days of unrestrained capitalism following the revolution, the site came into the hands of now notorious businessmen. This nontraditional documentary portrait, suffused with an air of mystery, captures the genius loci and turbulent history of a hidden summer paradise that was left off every map.


I Have Fingers In Honey (2011) Documentary short.
Dir: Petra Nesvacilova

Film tells the story, in poetic moments of silence, of the director’s meeting with Ivan Medek and the artist Tereza. The words from a long-ago interview with a Czech moralist talking about male honor shift the random, fluctuating images into the reality of an imbalanced relationship between a modern woman and a conflicted actor.
