The 5th Czech and Slovak Film Festival screens at ACMI from September 14. The festival celebrates and promotes a contextualised range of classic and modern Czech and Slovak cinema to both Australian and expatriate audiences. Programmed to the theme of “Neighbours”, this year’s landmark edition of the festival allows for consideration of much more than merely how the Czechs and Slovaks relate to one another. Opening the festival this year is The Line. Greg spoke to the festival’s artistic director Cerise Howard to find out more about this year’s program.
