Japanese New Wave among highlights of 42nd Karlovy Vary Film Festival
It's over two months until the start of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, during which the pretty west Bohemian town is transformed for a week and a half, becoming the most exciting and glamorous place in the Czech Republic. But the countdown to this year's 42nd Karlovy Vary has already begun, with organisers presenting key elements of the programme to the media on Tuesday morning. At the launch, artistic director Eva Zaoralova told me a little about this year's special sections.
It's over two months now to the beginning of the festival. How close is the programme to completion? Or is it all ready?
Every year the festival seems to be bigger, with more people getting accredited and so on - do you think Karlovy Vary can keep growing, or has it reached its maximum size?
Perhaps you aren't the right person to ask but people will be wondering - who will be special guests this year, do you know?
"Oh, the names I know but it's not yet sure. So we will wait for the next press conference and there we will say some good names!"
