The Czech and Slovak Association of WA is delighted to announce the 5th Czech and Slovak Film Festival of WA. The festival will take place at Luna Leederville 21st to 24th November.

For the fifth time, we will be celebrating the beauty and courage of the Czech and Slovak cinematography, which addresses tough themes with ease, humour and critical self-reflection. The year 2019 is again the year of many respectable anniversaries. So, our traditional motto “Full of Stories” is an accurate one.

To make every screening more festival-ish!, all feature films will be preceded by a short film made by ECU and WASA film students. And finally, every festival visitor has a chance to win one of our fabulous prizes from our generous sponsors. The main prize is two nights for two in OK Divers & Spa in Bali. All the films are screened with English subtitles and only once, so do not miss your chance and book your tickets!

OPENING NIGHT EVENT

We would love to invite you to the opening night of the festival, where we will celebrate not only the 5th Czech and Slovak Film Festival of WA but also the 30th anniversary of The Velvet revolution which opened the former Czechoslovak Socialist Republic to the free world.

Join us on 21st November for a screening of the great movie On The Roof, with a complimentary drink on arrival, Czech and Slovak finger food and music for you to enjoy! The event begins at 6:00pm, the movie will be screened at 7pm.

CLOSING NIGHT EVENT

The last evening of the festival is another moment worth celebrating – The Closing Night. Come and enjoy Czech and Slovak refreshment and the movie.

An Australian Premiere, we will be screening Toman, a historic drama about controversial character Zdenek Toman, who is fighting for his personal prospects and the prospect of the Communist Party in Czechoslovakia after WWII, not knowing how considerably his actions will influence The Czech Republic 70 years later. The event begins at 5:45pm, the movie at 6:20pm.

Just before the movie, audience prizes will be drawn. So, come, bring your friends, and make Sunday 24th November absolutely unforgettable.
