News Practical info of the Karlovy Vary IFF 54½

Safety measures for guests and audiences

Besides all national or regional governmental regulations valid during the festival, we are also planning a number of additional measures of our own.

The number of seats in the screening halls will be set in line with the capacity permitted by government regulations. A specialized company will ensure several types of preventative disinfection.


In view of the event’s shorter duration, there will be no Festival Passes. Instead, tickets will be sold for individual screenings, with priority given to online sales. We are tentatively cancelling the planned start of ticket sales originally scheduled for 21 October 2020. We will inform you about our next steps the moment we have further information as to how and under what conditions we will be able to hold our festival. Ticket presales will be through the Go Out reservation platform. Ticket prices will be CZK 80. Tickets may also be purchased from ticket offices at the participating cinemas. For health and safety reasons, visitors will have to register their contact information when purchasing their tickets.


Accommodations in Karlovy Vary may be reserved individually at local hotels and other accommodation facilities. Information on available accommodation may be found at

The festival’s traditional center, Thermal Hotel, has put together a special offer of accommodation packages for the public. Besides accommodations at the hotel, the festival will add tickets to screenings as part of this offer. For more information, see here.


We are preparing a special collection of festival souvenirs for the Karlovy Vary IFF 54½, and these will be available for purchase at the Thermal Hotel. A printed program brochure will be available as well.

Detailed information and the latest news will be published on an ongoing basis on the official festival website,, and on our social networks.
