A film festival of contemporary Australian and New Zealand films. Australian and New Zealand content is rarely seen in Czech theatres, television and festivals and our goal is to reverse this. Through contemporary films we aim to introduce local audiences to Australia and New Zealand as a multicultural continent with an extraordinary tradition that stems from its rich aboriginal culture, showing that it is more than what was depicted in Crocodile Dundee – a country full of sharks and beaches.
The Aussie & Kiwi Film Fest presents contemporary cinema from down under along with the different lifestyle and culture not only to Czechs and expats, but also to students of film and art who come to study in the Czech Republic from across Europe.
