Frequently Asked Questions

Note: festival Passes are sold out.

Are the festival films screened in English?

Yes, all films are shown either in English or with English subtitles. 


What is the festival pass good for?

With festival passes you can attend screenings at Lucerna, Světozor (Small Hall), Městská knihovna / Municipal Library of Prague (Small Hall) and Atlas (Large Hall). To attend the screenings, however, you need to pick up a free ticket from the box office before the screening. Available at the box office as early as one day before the screening, the tickets for CZK 0 must be picked up at least 30 minutes before the screening; the free tickets cannot be booked.
ACCESS TO EAST DOC PLATFORM: Festival pass holders, in addition, are also given free access to the publicly accessible East Doc Platform industry programme events organised by the Institute of Documentary Film.

Am I guaranteed a seat at the festival venue with the festival pass?

You are guaranteed the seat only if you have a ticket to the given screening. To each and every screening, the box offices are allocated a given number of tickets for the festival pass holders.

Can I give my festival pass to a friend? Are the festival passes transferrable?

Since our festival passes are issued to a person, they are NOT transferrable. Free admission is thus available only to the festival pass holder.

Why do I have to pick up a free ticket for CZK 0 from the box office?

The number of tickets sold and/or collected from the box office tells us how many people attended the screening.

How many screenings a day can I attend with my festival pass?

Your festival pass entitles you to three (four on Saturday and Sunday) free tickets a day.

Can I purchase a ticket to One World on the Internet?

Not centrally – the festival venues operate their own ticket sales systems that are not yet fully compatible with one another. Nonetheless, Lucerna and Světozor offer tickets to their screenings directly on their websites.

Can I go to one place and buy tickets to screenings taking place at different venues?

No, as the festival venues operate their own ticket sales systems only tickets to films screened at the given festival venue can be collected from the box office of the festival venue concerned.

Where do I learn about sold-out screenings?

Advance information about the sold-out screenings is published on the festival website. If the screening is sold out the box with the film screening date located next to the film synopsis (Films A-Z) turns red and the SOLD OUT sign appears in the cinema and/or daily programme next to the screening in question.

Why should I register on the festival website?

Once registered, you can take an active part in One World and…:
• … access the “My Programme” web application to compile your own programme;
• … receive our festival newsletter by email


What is “My Programme”?

With “My Programme” you can compile (and print out) your own programme – simply log in, browse through the festival programme, select the film you want to see, click on the desired screening date and add it your programme.

I have registered on your website but have forgotten my password. What can I do? 

If you have forgotten your password, please enter your registration email here and wait for an email with instructions on how to create a new password.

Can I vote for the Audience Award also online?

No, you can vote only at the festival venues. 


Are the festival venues barrier-free?


Are there any discounts available? 

Tickets to the festival screenings are available for purchase for CZK 90. Disability discounts are subject to terms and conditions of the individual festival venues. 

Why is Bageterie Boulevard the festival’s general partner?
