Let's look back at the Summer Film School in Uherské Hradiště, where we screened the French drama Sauvage. The improvised cinema at the local gym was more than full and we thank you for that! The program director Sandra, who also introduced the film, and DJ Tasya, played awesome music at the afterparty.
The traditional parade for LGBTQ + rights (this year on August 10, 2019) is the high light of Prague Pride, which was also evident in its abundant participation. To accompany our walk, from our car played DJ Step by Step, which you may know from our festival parties. Thank you for the amazing atmosphere. And as they say, without rain there is no rainbow!
Tradiční průvod prahou za práva LGBTQ+ komunity patří k vyvrcholením Prague Pride, což bylo poznat i na hojné účasti. K chůzi nám z mezipaterního auta zahrála DJka Step by Step, kterou můžete znát z festivalových party. Děkujeme za úžasnou atmosféru. A jak se říká, bez deště není duhy!
