The Marienbad Film Festival will show a restored version of the Last Year In Marienbad movie

In its 'Retrospective' section, the Marienbad Film Festival, which takes place from 28th to 31st August this year, will present director Alain Resnais, showing a restored version of his film Last Year in Marienbad, and also the actress Audrey Hepburn. The festival will welcome one of the most important European directors BenceFliegauf. The main 'Theater Electrique' section will feature film by award-winning Argentine director Eduardo Williams, who will introduce it personally together with the actor Nula Pérez Biscayart. This section will also present work of Czech authors Roman Štětina, Bohdan Karásek and Jan Kačena.

Graphic design honors Last Year at Marienbad

The graphic design of the fourth year of Marienbad Film Festival presents some fairly dramatic changes. Jakub Samek, one of the foremost Czech designers and typographers, is responsible for this year’s look. It is inspired by the classic film Last Year at Marienbad of director Alain Resnais, the same film that brought about the idea to establish Marienbad Film Festival to begin with.

Full Moon to bring Katarzia!

The resident cultural society, Švihák, will traditionally join forces with Full Moon magazine to provide the accompanying program of Marienbad Film Festival. Ferdinand’s spring colonnade will host Katarzia, Zabelov Group, +-0, Market, Kittchen, Aid Kid and Isama Zing. The main film program will also be supplemented by lectures, video clip presentations and electronic music workshops.
