Karlovy Vary International Film Festival


Category: Cultural and Social Events Region: Karlovy Vary and its surroundings Town: Karlovy Vary


The grandest and most significant event held in the Region of Karlovy Vary is the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. At the beginning of July, the festival turns the city of Karlovy Vary into a Mecca of film enthusiasts, journalists, and VIP personages.

The festival enriches the course of events in Karlovy Vary by inviting notable representatives of traditional folk culture from both inland and abroad to take part in it. During the past years folklore ensembles from 23 countries of 5 continents performed in the spa town. More than 40 ensembles came from Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, many of them even on repeated occasions. During the festival the audience can choose from many performances on various scenes in the town and its surroundings. However, an absolutely unique programme, in which the majority of the participating ensembles take part, is the Gala-Programme taking place in the Large Hall of the Spa Hotel Thermal every year.
