Travolta a big hit at the Vary film fest

The arrival of John Travolta at hotel Thermal for the opening ceremony of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival on Friday evoked unusual excitement among Czech film fans and attracted record crowds, according to some new sources. More than 2,000 people came to the late-night screening of Grease on the same night. At the official opening gala evening, Travolta received the Crystal Globe award for lifetime contribution to world cinema and direct Michel Godry introduced his latest film Mood Indigo. One of the most awaited events on Saturday is the screening of the new film Killing Season, which stars John Travolta, who will be introducing it as well.

Czech director Vojtěch Jasný received the Festival President’s Prize at the screening of the digitally premastered version of his best-known film All My Compatriots. The 87-year-old film pro, who directed over fifty films, both in Czechoslovakia and abroad, actively took part in the digitalization process.
