Talking Cinema

Cinemas aren't just for screening films. Talking Cinema brings you six major debates connected with selected films about current topics that resonate across society. Invitations have been accepted by interesting foreign guests. Two debates will be reserved for a single speaker, who will present the topic with a short lecture that will be followed by a moderated discussion (Talk). Four of the debates will feature two guests (Duel), who will offer two different points of view on the topic in question.

Duels are co-organised by the Goethe Institute in Prague

The debates will be in English with simultaneous translation into Czech after screening. Three of them will also be interpreted into Czech sign language. Audience members can ask questions via the Sli.do app.
