Dear Lovers of Great Movies and Friends of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival,
Like you, we can't wait for to the beginning of the summer holidays. We can't wait to pack up and go to Karlovy Vary to enjoy the program of the annual film showcase there.
During the past 13 years, innogy has been a reliable source of energy for Czech cinematography. For even longer, we have been the main partner to the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival; the partnership began 23 years ago. Apart from providing assistance to festivals and prestigious awards, our support for filmmaking includes coproducing feature films and documentaries. Our FILM FOUNDATION has changed the rules of the scriptwriting contest. We are now even more focused on encouraging the development of young talents. The foundation's committee is currently reviewing entries in two categories. One of them – Tomorrow's Star – is new, and it has been created to support young talented writers aged up to 33 years whose scripts have not been used in the production of a feature film. The best scriptwriters will receive cheques on the fifth festival day.
During the past several years, we have also been supplying energy for the project Cinema without Barriers. Like other venues, our company's head office is a Friendly Spot, which means that it has easy access for individuals with various disabilities. We consider efforts in this regard a part of our social corporate responsibility, and we're happy that the festival's organizers are committed to facilitating the movement of persons in wheelchairs around the festival grounds.
As usual, there will be a rich program of extras. Our innogy point near the Mill Colonnade will be open from Friday, June 29 until Saturday, July 7. In the late afternoon and in the evening on Friday, July 6, there will be a big autograph signing near the Mill Colonnade, which will feature the creators of movies we have co-produced. It will be followed by a concert featuring two singers. Two great singers. You'll have to come to see who they are.
I'm looking forward to recharging batteries together. See you in Karlovy Vary!
Chairman of the Board of Directors
