The International Film Festival has been held in Prague since 1993 and usually welcomes international film stars to the Golden City every year in March - this year the festival was postponed to late summer due to the Corona crisis. Febio Fest, named after the founding independent film and TV production company Febio, is one of the largest and most successful film festivals in the Czech Republic. This year’s opening film is the gala pre-premiere of Karel, a documentary giving a unique insight into the private life of Czech singer Karel Gott. In the following days the festival will show films of various genres by directors from all over the world. Finally, film fans can expect the French-Japanese production The Truth by Cannes winner Hirokazu Kore-eda starring Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche, Catherine Deneuve and Hollywood star Ethan Hawke.
