Legendary films return to the big screen

December 1–3, 2022

Prague, Kino Světozor & Ponrepo


In the Karlovy Vary film festival’s tradition of presenting digitally restored films and retrospectives, the festival’s organizers have decided to dedicate a separate event to legendary films. Held in Prague, the mini-festival will give films, filmmakers, and actors who made their mark on cinematic history another chance to again meet audiences on the big screen – not only long-time fans who remember the films’ premieres, but first-time viewers as well.

The first edition of this festival of cinematic legends, held under the auspices of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in collaboration with the National Film Archive, will take place at Prague’s Světozor and Ponrepo cinemas from 1 to 3 December 2022.


All screenings are English-friendly, meaning either in English or with English subtitles.
