The short-film programme brings futuristic visions of young Czech and international filmmakers. Via the short-film format, we will become participants in a space experiment, get stuck in a time loop, and will learn how to programme our ideal lovers in a dystopian setting. The thematically varied block that isn’t lacking in hyperboles and inspiration was made possible, as always, in cooperation with iShorts.
