Audience numbers and films screened down on 2009

This year’s Karlovy Vary festival attracted fewer visitors and fewer films were screened than in 2009. The total number of visitors was just under 127,000, that is a drop of around 5,000 compared with a year ago. The number of films screened was 207. This compares with the 232 full length films and documentaries screened in 2009. Organisers said the drop in the number of new films screened had allowed them to repeat some favourites.
