Why we support

Dear film lovers and visitors to our beautiful Karlovy Vary Region,

The 53rd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival is approaching, and I am certain that it will once again attract to our regional capital and region thousands of silver screen enthusiasts who will surely not want to miss this most prestigious event in Central and Eastern Europe.

Traditionally, the Region of Karlovy Vary is among the festival’s main partners, and we would once again like to spread the festival atmosphere to other regional towns, where we are planning on screening some of the festival’s movies. As usual, our highly popular regional stand will be located at Hotel Thermal, the festival hotspot where visitors can meet filmmakers as well as famous European and international film stars. We will offer festival ticket competitions, discounts on admissions to regional museums and galleries, and contests with prizes promoting the region. As a surprise, we are preparing a grand-scale regional entertainment event for festival visitors, families with children, and the wider public.

I wish you all an unforgettable experience and many beautiful memories of the film festival and its abundant accompanying program. I am looking forward to welcoming you, and I hope that you will soon return to our region, so rich in historical and cultural monuments as well as natural beauty.

Mgr. Jana Vildumetzová
Governor of the Karlovy Vary Region
