The special mention of the jury was presented to Nathan Nicholovitch's Where There Is Shade (De l'ombre il y a).
It's not necessary to point out that Mezipatra is more than film. What can you look forward to at the offprogram in Brno?
During the two festival weeks, the viewers have the opportunity to vote for their favourite film through a simple grading system directly in cinemas; the winner of the audience award will be announced during the closing ceremony in Brno on 18th November.
We will welcome the very first guest of this year's Mezipatra, Parvez Sharma, an Indian journalist and filmmaker living in New York whose films focus mainly on the attitude of Islam towards homosexuality.
Lounging in dark screening halls must sometimes alternate with some lighter program.
Apart from great films, you can also come to lectures and discussions at Mezipatra, meet interesting Czech and foreign guests, and find out why some people sound more “gay” than others, what is “normporn,” or what is the representation of trans* people in film and media like.
Pokud jste ještě nikdy nebyli na Mezipatrech a letos se chystáte, tak vězte, že… Nejdete na Mezi ploty. Na Bohnice jsme sice dva dny před zahájením zralí všichni, o divadlo ani o hudbu ale na Mezipatrech primárně nejde. Jde hlavně o filmy – letos jich bude 66, většinu z nich uvidíte v české premiéře a spousta z nich již ovládla světové festivaly. Mezipatra znamenají ale mnohem víc, jak ví nejen všechny pražské buzny.
Forty-four short films from four continents in seven sections. You can see student films as well as professional ones, live-action dramas and comedies, music videos, animation and documentaries.
You should be prepared for this year's Mezipatra even in Brno and buy a festival pass. For 490,- CZK you can see seven films. For this amount you should normally get only five tickets so do not hesitate and buy you festival pass. We have limited amount.
