The icing on the cake of this year's program in Prague was the gala closing, where we awarded the best films and screened All About My Mother. It was followed by a party We Are Family. We danced to the music of DJs Kaa Glo, Sestra and Program Director of Mezipatra Sandra.

After a busy weekend, we continued our film and accompanying program with the same energy. We screened short films in a non-competitive block Queer as FAMU II, and then talked to the authors in a lively discussion at the Patra café.

The festival weekend was extremely packed with events! We talked with Chris Miera, the director of Paths or Arshad Khan about his documentary Abu, enjoyed the brunch at Patra, listened to tracks under the baton of DJ Tytovíš at our chillout zone, and discussed the situation of women on the music scene. Finally add a lot of movies and one big party on top of that. And this festival is far from ending!

The 18th edition of Mezipatra has started on November 2 in Lucerna cinema. We screened the film Tom of Finland and danced at the party Leather Your Leather to the music of Urxins and Rosier & Chlorophyll. Drinks by Jameson and F. H. Prager were a blast. Thank you all for coming!

We started off this year's edition of Mezipatra with the exhibition opening of #TheGalleryProject in the café Patra. You can see the artworks by artists from 27 different countries till the end of November.
