Dear Film Aficionados and Festival Goers,
Our new brand name is synonymous with innovation and modern technology – innogy symbolizes our entry into the new world of digital energy. We want to make our customers' lives easier and to help them better understand how to manage and optimize the energy needs of their households and businesses. This way, customers will have more time to do what they like and enjoy, for example, visiting Karlovy Vary at the beginning of the summer to see how Czech cinematography fares in comparison to filmmaking in other parts of the world.
As innogy, we remain a reliable source of energy for Czech film. We are not only the main partner to the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, the Uherské Hradiště Summer Film School, the Czech Film Critics' Awards, the Czech Lion, and the Beroun Trilobites, but more importantly, we are also co-producer of nearly 60 feature films and documentaries. And the shooting will continue, as scriptwriters and filmmakers still have plenty to say. As many as 106 screenplays have been registered in the first round of our FILM FOUNDATION, and the best authors will receive prizes worth a total of 800,000 crowns on the fourth day of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
Like in previous years, the festival will be enlivened by our program of extras. You can all look forward to the innovative program of our roadshow, which will take place near the Mill Colonnade from Saturday, July 1 to Sunday, July 8, 2017. In the late afternoon and evening on Friday, July 7, 2017, the very same venue will treat visitors to the spa metropolis to an autographing session and concert of the legendary band Pražský výběr.
I cordially invite all of you to come out to our events to recharge your energy! Looking forward to seeing you in Karlovy Vary.
Chairman of the Board of Directors
