Czechoslovak Film Week

The Embassy of the Czech Republic in London is pleased to announce that a Czechoslovak Film week will take place in their recently refurbished cinema on 19th – 24th February 2018. In cooperation with the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in London and the Czech Centre London the programme will introduce a selection of three Czech and three Slovak films, which will be accessible free of charge.

The Film Week will be organised during this important year for both the Czech Republic and Slovakia when we will be celebrating many important anniversaries from the modern history of the Czech and Slovak states. The aim of the Czechoslovak Film Week is not to reflect all the anniversaries but rather to present the signature pieces of Czech and Slovak film-making – films that we believe to be immortal and have the potential to appeal to the viewers of today, regardless of their background. Each screening will be introduced by an expert on Czech and Slovak film.

*****

Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the programme. The cinema is accessible through the reception of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in London, 26 Kensington Palace Gardens, London W8 4QY. Please note the entrance is on Bayswater Road. All films will be screened with English subtitles. Reservations can only be made through the Eventbrite system.

Czechoslovak Film Week will be opened by the Ambassadors of the Czech and Slovak Republics in London. All guests are cordially invited to a glass of wine after the screening.
