Mezipatra Queer Film Festival presents a program called Identity in the City during the Prague Pride. From Tuesday to Friday (August 8 – 10, 2019), anyone can attend the evening screening and participate in discussions on queer topics. The venue will be Kasárna Karlín and of course there is a café and a bar.
We invite you to the premiere of the first film in the distribution Queer Kino, which will take place on July 18, 2019 at 18:30 at the Lucerna Cinema. You will see the award-winning French drama Sauvage, which has impressed audiences around the world. Buy your ticket today!
At the moment, there is no distribution in the Czech Republic offering exclusively queer movies to cinemas across the country. The audience is thus dependent on traditional distribution companies to include such films in their program which usualy offer them to selected cinemas only (alternative films often go solely to Prague cinemas). Therefore we are starting own own distribution label called Queer Kino.
Have you missed any of the short films during Mezipatra? Now you have a unique chance at Prague Quadriennale (PQ). We have prepared special screenings in cooperation with Neone where we will screen the best of shorts on June 10 from 8:30 p.m.
Apart from seeing the films The Nettle, The Rabbi, BobbyAnna, Hi, It's Your Mother, The Mess He Made nebo The World in Your Window you can also buy our merchandising there. Follow the FB event for fresh info.
We participate in the FILIP 20 event, which celebrates the twentieth birthday of a boy who committed suicide at the age of 14 because of the homophobic views present in the society. As part of this queer meetup, we will screen the successful film Love, Simon and a special selection of short films about queer children and families. We look forward to seeing you on March 24 at 6:00 p.m. in Kampus Hybernská (Hybernská 4, Prague 1).
Submit your film to the 20th edition of Mezipatra Queer Film Festival which takes place in November 2018 in Prague (Nov. 7–14, 2019) and Brno (Nov. 15–22, 2019), Czech Republic. Cinematic works of any length and genre created after January 1, 2018, and meeting the criteria mentioned in the Rules and Regulations section, can be submitted by July 20, 2019.
This year at Berlinale, the 33rd Teddy Award will be given to the best queer films on February 15, 2019. An international jury consisting of seven members from all over the world will also welcome Sandra Hezinová, Program Director of Mezipatra. Congratulations! The ceremony will take place at Volksbühne Berlin (Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, 10178 Berlin) and there are still some tickets available!
Thank you very much for your support this year and many unforgettable experiences. In 2019, we wish you the best, a lot of queer love and (not only) film inspiration. And if you still do not have a plan for tonight, dance with us at Patra on Thank You, Next! New Year's Eve party. We look forward to meeting you wherever will it be!
Still don't know where to celebrate the entry to the new year? Good, because you probably felt that you were gonna find out about the perfect party soon. And you were right! Come to Patra to dance through the New Year's Eve at Thank you, next! party. At the entrance you will get a glass of frizzante and then listen to our (almost resident) DJs Tasya and Nevinnost. Other DJs will join them during the night.
