FEINKOŠT - The Czech-German Short Film Tour
For the 10th time the Czech Film Center (Prague) and the AG Kurzfilm (Dresden) invite Czech and German filmmakers to present their works together. Over 70 German and Czech short films have been screened over the past 10 years.
As usual, we will show current short films from Germany in the Czech Republic and discuss them with the filmmakers and the audience.
From Germany this time ASCONA by Julius Dommer is part of the programme: this documentary film approaches the phenomenon of miniature golf - in a miniature golf course in northern Germany that seems to have fallen out of time. Here this sport is practised with great seriousness and the operators report with dry North German humour about the beginnings of the course. The animated documentary APART comes from the Czech Republic - director Diana Cam Van Nguyen sensitively captures very personal stories about the grief and loss of loved ones.
Some time ago, the construction of a wall in Munich's Neuperlach district made headlines nationwide - residents feared noise pollution from a planned refugee shelter. In his documentary film BIOTOP, director Paul Scholten meets supporters and opponents of the facility. The programme also includes the Czech short feature film STO DVACET OSM TISÍC (One Hundred and Twenty-Eight Thousand) by Ondřej Erban, which was screened in 2019 in the Cinéfondation for Student Films section at the Cannes Film Festival. The director accompanies a debt collector who slowly doubts his daily work.
BABYLON by Sebastian Stern takes us back to the early 1990s - the border between Bavaria and the Czech Republic is open and a boy from Germany and a girl from the Czech Republic get to know each other.
In 2019, FEINKOŠT will stop at 12 locations in Germany and the Czech Republic.
