Moving to digital asylum – 24th Ji.hlava IDFF will be fully online

Dear friends,

As a result of measures introduced by the government of the Czech Republic yesterday – which include complete closure of cinemas in the country – we were forced to move the 24th Ji.hlava IDFF to a fully online edition.

Both the film selection and the rich festival’s industry programme will be presented next week, as planned. Please find our official statement below:

Ji.hlava is moving to digital asylum. We have always preferred the festival to happen physically as we draw our inspiration primarily from screenings in cinema halls, discussions and personal meetings. However, the situation has changed and we respect that. Therefore, we want to see the currently closed cinemas in the Czech Republic as an opportunity and a challenge. This year again, we will treat you to a full-fledged festival programme as well as the tenth edition of the Inspiration Forum, sharing all the events online, in a surprising and engaging form. Join us in this endeavor!

Thank you for your support and trust!
