Uherské Hradiště – This year’s Summer Film School (LFŠ) in Uherské Hradiště will take place from 6 to 12 August, festival spokesman Libor Galia told ČTK today. The festival was originally scheduled for the end of July. According to the director of the show, Radana Korené, the organizers want to postpone the date of the event to gain the necessary time for preparation. They took a similar step last year with regard to measures against the spread of coronavirus last year.
“The main reason is the fact that we still do not have a clear definition from the Czech government under what conditions it will be possible to organize the event.
Due to the general uncertainty, according to her, the organizers also do not know how many visitors they will be able to organize the festival this year. She mentioned restrictions in halls, summer cinemas or tents. “That’s why we decided to shorten the festival by one day compared to the original plan,” said Korená.
According to her, the organizers of the LFŠ believe that the result of negotiations between the Ministries of Health and Culture and professional organizations in culture will soon reach a viable form, so that everyone finally knows what they can count on. “We are impatiently waiting for the reopening of the cultural space, the pandemic situation has a favorable trend, so only a small detail remains so that our government takes note of the existence and need for cultural events,” Korená added.
The organizers of the 47th LFŠ have already presented the content of some of this year’s festival sections. The retrospective section will focus on the work of Akira Kurosawa, the Terra festivalis section will focus on Mexican film, and the Midnight Delicacies section will present low-budget films that have reached the audience thanks to the expansion of video rentals and the expansion of home video players.
Last year’s show was also significantly affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Even then, the organizers moved it to a later date and shortened it. Last year, visitors had the opportunity to see 94 feature films in Uherské Hradiště, in 2019 there were roughly double them. Furthermore, last year the festival offered seven medium-length and 63 short films, as well as a number of accompanying activities. The program was accessible only to accredited visitors, of whom there were about 5,000.
