VARY(ACE) Film Festival

A unique project promises three great movies

Exceptional exhibition projects such as the Years of Disarray 1908–1928 | Avant-gardes in Central Europe, require exceptional accompanying programs. One of these is the VARY(ace) Film Festival, which connects the exhibition with the top experts of Czech film and amateur filmmakers. Its aim was to create three short movies inspired by the chapters of the exhibition – the Catharsis and the Lonely Self.

The several-month VARY(ace) workshop focused on amateur filmmakers and offered them the opportunity to work with the best professionals in the field of film production such as actors or supervisors through script, camera, editing and music. The film festival will culminate with the closing ceremony which is going to be held on January 27, 2019 in the Theatre of Music in Olomouc.

"The main point of the programme will of course be the projection of all three films, including animated clips created by children. The audience will also see a short film documenting the course of project and four animated clips that have been created by students within the ArtCoMe international education programme. All actors and supervisors promised to participate in the evening,” said David Hrbek, co-author of the film festival.
