The theme of this year's Mezipatra is „Winds of Change”. This anniversary provides us with an opportunity to emphasize the festival's social and political dimensions. Through this year's theme, we accentuate the mutual queer solidarity and emphasize the necessity to be an active force that will not be discouraged by obstacles and aversion in its fight for equality and recognition in the whole society. This year we also prepared a special industry program for film professionals. Full program will be released on October 16. Until then you can purchase a festival pass and see seven films for the price of five..

Mezipatra Queer Film Festival presents a program called Identity in the City during the Prague Pride. From Tuesday to Friday (August 8 – 10, 2019), anyone can attend the evening screening and participate in discussions on queer topics. The venue will be Kasárna Karlín and of course there is a café and a bar.
We invite you to the premiere of the first film in the distribution Queer Kino, which will take place on July 18, 2019 at 18:30 at the Lucerna Cinema. You will see the award-winning French drama Sauvage, which has impressed audiences around the world. Buy your ticket today!
At the moment, there is no distribution in the Czech Republic offering exclusively queer movies to cinemas across the country. The audience is thus dependent on traditional distribution companies to include such films in their program which usualy offer them to selected cinemas only (alternative films often go solely to Prague cinemas). Therefore we are starting own own distribution label called Queer Kino.
Have you missed any of the short films during Mezipatra? Now you have a unique chance at Prague Quadriennale (PQ). We have prepared special screenings in cooperation with Neone where we will screen the best of shorts on June 10 from 8:30 p.m.
Apart from seeing the films The Nettle, The Rabbi, BobbyAnna, Hi, It's Your Mother, The Mess He Made nebo The World in Your Window you can also buy our merchandising there. Follow the FB event for fresh info.
