The Czech and Slovak Association of WA is delighted to announce the 5th Czech and Slovak Film Festival of WA. The festival will take place at Luna Leederville 21st to 24th November.
For the fifth time, we will be celebrating the beauty and courage of the Czech and Slovak cinematography, which addresses tough themes with ease, humour and critical self-reflection. The year 2019 is again the year of many respectable anniversaries. So, our traditional motto “Full of Stories” is an accurate one.
To make every screening more festival-ish!, all feature films will be preceded by a short film made by ECU and WASA film students. And finally, every festival visitor has a chance to win one of our fabulous prizes from our generous sponsors. The main prize is two nights for two in OK Divers & Spa in Bali. All the films are screened with English subtitles and only once, so do not miss your chance and book your tickets!

CLOSING NIGHT EVENT
The last evening of the festival is another moment worth celebrating – The Closing Night. Come and enjoy Czech and Slovak refreshment and the movie.
An Australian Premiere, we will be screening Toman, a historic drama about controversial character Zdenek Toman, who is fighting for his personal prospects and the prospect of the Communist Party in Czechoslovakia after WWII, not knowing how considerably his actions will influence The Czech Republic 70 years later.
