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.

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.
