Our online film map features a new short film from Prague’s Dejvice quarter called “Tap Water”. The film by Veronika Lišková recalls the events of May 2015 when thousands of citizens of Prague 6 ended up without drinking water after the water pipes were contaminated by sewage.
The organizers of My Street Films have announced the second edition of the national competition for the best documentary film up to 10 minutes. The filmmakers sent their short films telling the stories from their environment to the website www.mystreetfilms.cz and thus left their mark on the online film map of Europe. Out of a hundred submitted films from across the Czech Republic, the jury comprising documentarist Klára Tasovská, architect Adam Gebrian and project manager Diana Tabakov selected seven unique films. Subsequently, three best films were awarded and will travel to leading documentary festivals.
