Dear friends, we wish you charming Christmas and only the best in the new year. We look forward to seeing you at the next edition of the festival and by then, for example, at the Prague Pride or on Mezipatra Aproved screenings!
Bored of holiday cleaning? Frustrated from crowded Christmas markets? Take a deep breath and come see this year’s last screening from the Mezipatra Approved series! This time with the Israeli–German film The Cakemaker.
We finished the Prague part of the festival and waved goodbye to our great foreign guests. We have handed over the prizes to the winning films - the main feature film Beach Rats and the short film Transition (Tranzicija). And then we have danced through the night. However, the show goes on! Mezipatra in Brno will officially start on Thursday Nov. 10 with the Opening at 7:00 pm in Scala cinema. Before then, you can visit the opening of the Be Your Own Champion exhibition on Wednesday Nov. 9 from 6:00 pm at ArtBar Druhý Pád.
Frankie lives with his younger sister, mother and fatally ill father. He fights bitterness and frustration with drinking with a questionable bunch of friends, taking drugs and having occasional sex with older men.

You can see the melancholic coming-of-age film at 8:30 pm in Světozor cinema. As a bonus you will see the awarded short film Transition (Tranzicija) on the beginning.
