Today

Is It Really Fun to be a Student and Make Films?

I ask myself this question every year during the screenings of hundreds of films that film and art school students produce every season. I can really say without hesitation that this year was the most productive of them. Almost 1,400 student projects have entered the international competition of student films titled Zlín Dog.

Inspired by the famous Czech traveller Miroslav Zikmund (born 100 years ago) who travelled the world in his iconic Tatra 87 car.

MONKEYS DISCOVERING THEIR WORLD. ZLÍN FILM FESTIVAL'S ORGANIZERS HAVE PRESENTED THE VISUAL THEME FOR THE 59TH FILM FESTIVAL

These baby monkeys have had enough of... monkeying around. It's time for them to go on a great journey around the world. This is the main idea of the visual theme of this year's 59th Zlín Film Festival, which will be held in the spirit of travel. The basis of the visual theme, which was presented by the organizers of the festival today in the Congress Center in Zlín, is again the playful drawings of monkeys by the artist Petr Nikl. This year's festival will take place from May 24 to June 1.
