Why we support

Dear Friends,

The Karlovy Vary Film Festival has been around for 52 years – longevity that is certainly due to its unique atmosphere. Elsewhere in the world, film festival visitors normally only get the chance to see movie stars from behind the security barriers. In Karlovy Vary you can have discussions with them in the movie theatre, or perhaps meet them on the promenade... It is this close bond between the audience and the stars that is captured in this year’s festival poster, which sees ordinary people borrowing the faces of famous actors.

Without its audience, the Karlovy Vary IFF would never have become the festival it is today. All those who come to Karlovy Vary agree on this point. Even the world’s biggest film stars value the energy and vibe that the audience and visitors bring to the festival. So we can count on fans from all over the country and throughout the world returning to Karlovy Vary at the beginning of July for yet another film celebration. CEZ Group will once again be on hand to give the festival its traditional support, this year for the sixteenth time.

I look forward to meeting you on the spa concourse, in the Energy Zone, at ČEZ Foundation’s Orange Bicycle, and at the movies. I wish you all a wonderful time, and hope you take home some great memories from the cinemas and elsewhere in Vary.

Daniel Beneš
Managing Director and Chairman of the Board of Directors of ČEZ, a.s.
