May 15, 2017, Kino Světozor, Prague

- Seminar of Petr Marek: Truth and Fun. “I like uncertainty. A wild mixture of genres. A combination of live and stylized action. An interconnection of seriousness and idiocy. Good and bad acting. Using lo-fi technologies, a punk camera and sloppy editing as well as brilliantly composed images. I like to see real people experiencing artificial worlds in front of the camera. I love “being lost”: it helps me open up my thinking. I love both Karel Vachek and Ocean’s Eleven,” says director and musician Petr Marek whose seminar deals with stylization in documentary film and documentary elements in fiction film.

June 5, 2017, Kino Světozor, Prague

- Michal Kindernay, Zbyněk Baladrán, Adéla Babanová, Andrea Slováková: Film in Fine Arts and Experimental Space. Creative approaches in video designed for presentation in galleries and its specifics compared to films designed to be watched in cinemas. Films made by autonomous devices constructed by the artist, thus exploring the environment shot by the camera both through image and the way it is captured. Self-reflective works with precise style and short-length video essays with multiple layers of meaning. The work straddled between film and fine arts as well as various forms of film experimentation will be introduced through a discussion with visual artists and their work.

Your Čerňák, your film - make it!

The Stop Zevling festival has joined the My Street Films map of Prague to fill in the empty space of Prague 14 with two short documentaries! In cooperation with the organizers of My Street Films, the festival organizes a one-day film workshop tutored by young directors Apolena Rychlíková and Vladimír Turner held on Saturday, September 13 at the Plechárna Černý Most centre for free. The team work of two film groups will result in two short documentaries to enter the film map at www.mystreetfilms.cz.
