Today we announced the names of the opening films - look forward to animation and a summer story about first love

The 63rd edition of the Zlín Film Festival starts in three weeks. Are you ready for an annual dose of quality films (not only) for children, (not only) about children, but about everything related to children's world? Then don't miss the opening films that kick off the festival!

The festival will officially open on June 1 at 10:00 am with the world premiere of the Czech-Slovak-Hungarian family film Tony, Shelly and the Magic Light. The film, directed by Filip Pošivac and created with stop-motion animation, delivers the message that it is possible to deal with difference in any form and that tolerance and responsibility are cards that can always be played.

The world premiere of the Canadian film Billie Blue will be shown during the opening night gala for adults. Director Mariloup Wolfe, screenwriter Sarah-Maude Beauchesne, and lead actress Lilliane Skelly are coming to the festival to present this summer tale of romantic first love.
