Five Canadian films will be presented at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, which will run from July 1 to 9.
The Canadian embassy had a role to play in bringing these Canadian films to Czech Republic. Moreover, the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival will present a tribute to Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies).
Among the five films that will be screened, four will have their world premiere. In the official competition, Canada will be represented by Martin Donovan's Collaborator and Ivan Grbovic's Roméo Onze.
The teen drama Laurentie will be presented out of the competition while Aaron Houston's Sunflower Hour, a mockumentary, will be screened in the Forum of Independents.
The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival's tribute to Denis Villeneuve will consist in screenings.
Four of his feature films will be presented: Un 32 août sur terre, Maelström, Polytechnique and Incendies, which was nominated at the last Oscar ceremony for the Best foreign language film. Also in the tribute are two of his shorts, Next Floor and REW-FFWD.
Denis Villeneuve will also drop by to meet the festival-goers and journalists during the tribute given to him.
