Dear friends, film fans, and festival guests,
Like you, everybody at Vodafone – myself included – seems to catch movie fever in early June. I am incredibly honored to say that this is already the eleventh year that we are joining you in stunning Karlovy Vary to celebrate unique cinematic experiences, to catch up with friends, meet with business partners, and quite simply enjoy the beautiful early days of summer. Over the years, Vodafone and the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival have built a solid partnership, and we always try to bring a little extra something for festival visitors. My personal favorite must be the Vodafone beach outside the Hot Spring Colonnade where visitors can participate in various games or just bask in the sun, soaking up the festival atmosphere.
Hardcore film fans who first and foremost come to the festival to enjoy the art of cinema will, once again, be able to use a special festival app, as well as an SMS-based ticket reservation system. The app also includes a festival guide, the festival program with details about all the movies, information about special events, the latest news, and interesting competitions. Last but not least, we will continue our tradition of hosting a popular golf tournament for our business partners, for actors, filmmakers, and other VIPs.
I hope that this year’s Karlovy Vary International Film Festival will offer a unique experience to each and every visitor.
I look forward to seeing you not only at business meetings but also informally at the Vodafone beach or taking a stroll near the Colonnade.
Enjoy the films!
The CEO of Vodafone Czech Republic
