Dear friends, don’t despair if you haven’t found your film in the following list. It has definitely remained in the competition and just now is being evaluated by an international jury of three, however, it hasn’t been chosen to appear as one of the festival projections. If the jury prizes you film, you are to see it during the Saturday final ceremonial. We thank you for all the received movies.

Awards ceremony!

Klub Atlantik was coming apart at the seams on Saturday, 17:00... It has become a nice tradition that a majority of the movie makers take part in the awards ceremony and the dicussion with our jury and manage to make their way to Ostrava from remote parts of the country or even from Poland and Slovakia. This year’s ceremony wasn’t an exception to the rule.


Midi lidi in Ostrava!

This year’s award ceremony will culminate with an extraordinary musical delicacy! Ostrava’s Klub Fabric is to present Midi Lidi and their guest, a Slovak band, Pudink paní Elvisovej. Don’t miss the chance to see this superlatives-spun concert!


First workshops started already

As usually, this years’ Ostrava-Picture is starting off with a weekly workshop during which is a bunch of student filmmakers to try and produce a short movie in the streets of Ostrava. You already might have seen them running around in logo shirts out there!



The biggest timed competition of its kind will take place in Prague for the first time this year and will present all of the winning films as well as it will present itself in a virtual workshop at Ostrava-Picture. 48 HOUR FILM PROJECT. Be a part of it. Enter the Prague competition or visit the screening and workshop in Ostrava.


TV spot again from Martin Jůza

This year´s spot reminds us that the time behind a camera runs at the same pace as anywhere else... and school, gals, dudes, temporary part-time jobs or friendly helping out often distract from intensive creation. You´ll probably never catch up what you´ve missed when you were hot for the lens and ideas were dancing around... Or maybe? Don´t despair, grab the camera and head out as the dead line of the competition isn´t until the 9th of October!
