News New Festival Trailer with Johnny Depp

Published: May 05, 2023| 10:51 AM

This year’s new festival trailer, which will have its premiere at the opening ceremony of the 57th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, stars actor Johnny Depp.

The festival’s original trailers try to take a distinctive approach to honoring guests and award recipients from previous editions of the Karlovy Vary film festival.

American actor, producer, and musician Johnny Depp – the recipient of three Oscar nominations, a Golden Globe, and countless other awards – was a guest of the 55th Karlovy Vary film festival in 2021, where he personally presented two films that he produced: the documentary Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan (2020) and the drama Minamata (2020), in which he played the lead. His visit was met with great interest on the part of audiences and fans.

The idea of shooting festival trailers featuring distinctive representatives of world cinema was born fifteen years ago. The creative minds behind these micro-stories showing their subjects’ connection with the festival are directors Ivan Zachariáš and Martin Krejčí.

Johnny Depp is the eighteenth person to appear in a trailer made especially for the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. It was directed by the widely acclaimed advertising and film director Ivan Zachariáš.
