trailer 1

On the glades surrounded by dark woods, Furry together with a group of different species of friends, live in the burrows. They feed themselves only by seeds which become glowing fruit after touching the ground. However, these appear only rarely. The animals´ fear of the wood does not allow them to leave the glade and head off to look for the food somewhere else. Instead, they resignedly wait until it falls from the sky. Furry does not want only to wait. The wood awakens curiosity in him and despite all concerns and disagreements of others, he decides to go through it.

An autobiographic film by a legendary Czech New Wave director Jan Němec based on his biography “Nepodávej ruku číšníkovi”. "Wolf, a savage, tricky and uncotrollable creature. Wolf insheep's clothing and other way around. You'll see the crime scenes, the authentic dialogues, author's comment, archive materials both genuine and fake. Everything in the film had really happened. Or maybe it might be little blown up."

Animated short based on an urban legend from the era of Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia during the WW II. The phantom avenger with spring-heeled shoes jumps above the streets of Prague and fights the occupants. He has to stop the Nazis from waking up the Golem - a dreadful artificial being from The Old Jewish Town. Czech variation on classic superheroes. Apart from them it wasn’t created by the fantasy of comic writers. This one was created directly from the folk tales.

The young director meets Rajko Doleček, a 90 yrs old dietitian and a former TV star, who used to promote healthy lifestyle, but who is also a convinced nationalist and a close friend of Ratko Mladič, who is held on trial in The Hague. In her feature-length film, Kristýna Bartošová delves into the personal life of Doctor Doleček, who is very charming, and the director has struggles between her affinity towards him and his unacceptable opinions. The Dangerous World of Doctor Doleček is a film about manipulation, but also a search for mutual understanding, acceptance

Feature documentary film The Czech Way tells a story of Czechoslovak economic transformation of the 90s. This transformation took place in the period, when the Czech and Slovak nationhood were established, so it was presented as the key to the transformation of totalitarian society into a democratic one, and on the other side, publicly understood mainly as a process of wealth redistribution from the stay to the people. The consequences of the very execution and rhetorics accompanying such sudden and large transfers of property still have interminable importance.

Documentary series called One Blood tells stories of young people in countries we know mostly from pictures full of suffering, poverty and terrorism. It documents lives of people who attempt to fulfil their dreams through sport and art despite their uneasy conditions in the country. They belong among the handful of those who stand against the society which denies or even bans their way of life. Their passion might be considered naive or stunning in Europe, nevertheless it shows a new generation of people who aim to change the future of these failed countries.

Michael or rather Mike is a twenty-two year old tattooer who ran away from war-torn Syrian Aleppo. At that time, he was sixteen. He could choose whether to pick up a gun with his childish hand and fight against the opponents of the Bashar’s regime, or leave the country and thus help his family which was not very well off. But most importantly, to fulfil his dream of becoming an honoured tattooer.

Štěpán is twenty-five and, although he has sufficient energy, he doesn’t really know where to direct it – or his life, for that matter. Nevertheless, he is unexpectedly goaded into action by a girl’s voice on the telephone and by a world-weary man he meets while staying at a country cottage. An unusual tragicomedy with an original cast.
