One World beyond the Movie Screen: Debates, VR section, and Guests

The One World festival programme doesn't end after the closing credits. You can also expand your horizons through virtual reality, expert debates, and masterclasses led by the creators themselves.

Venturing beyond the cinema halls, you’ll find specialised lectures led by seasoned film professionals. On Wednesday, 20 March, for example, the illustrious Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Holland will grace Prague with her presence. Renowned worldwide, she’ll delve into her cinematic craft and share insights on her latest film, Green Border, in the Great Hall of the Municipal Library beginning at 6:00 pm. You can also join Apolena Rychlíková, the visionary director behind Limits of Europe, for her enlightening masterclass, set to be held at the French Institute on Sunday, 24 March from 4:30 pm. Also be sure to mark your calendars for a captivating evening on Monday, 25 March, as Prague’s FAMU welcomes directors Anupama Srinivasan and Anirban Dutta, the brilliant minds behind the acclaimed film Flickering Lights, beginning at 7:00 pm.

And also don’t forget to check out the Immersive Films Competition at the Lucerna Gallery. Among the section’s ten VR projects you can experience include 21-22 China, in which you’ll discover China from a bird's-eye view; Floating With Spirits, which crosses the fine line between the realm of the living and the realm of the dead; and Texada, which explores layers of memories and melancholy. If you’re at a loss of what to see and how to see it, never fear. A team of volunteers will be readily available to offer advice and help get you set up. The exhibition is open on weekdays from 3:00 pm. On weekends, the first tours start at 1:00 pm. Tickets for entry on specific days are available on GoOut.

You can also broaden your horizons through lessons via the East Doc Platform. At the French Institute, you can explore The 10 Most Common Mistakes in Crafting Teasers under the guidance of producer Iikka Vehkalahti on Saturday, 23 March, starting at 9:30 AM. On Sunday, 24 March, at the same time, you can attend a lecture on Docufiction: Working With Reality in Contemporary Film. While these lectures are aimed at professional filmmakers, they remain open to the general public.

Heading back to the cinema halls, you can anticipate more than just post-screening debates with the creators; you can also engage in discussions with field experts relevant to each film's themes. The screening of Tack on Thursday, 21 March in the Chamber of Deputies, for instance, will be followed up with a discussion between women’s rights expert Irena Hůlová and the legal representative for victims and the accused in various sexual and domestic violence cases, Daniel Barton. You can also learn more about the intersection of art in public spaces and the whole Chinese region during a post-screening debate for Hong Kong Mixtape, moderated by Chinese foreign policy and rhetoric specialist Kara Němečková and sculptor-journalist Pavel Karous.
