This year we will not visit cinemas to see the films of the 21st Mezipatra. Due to the current situation, we are moving the entire film program to the online environment. All the films you would like to visit at Mezipatra can be stream from the comfort of your home. The price of one film will be lower than for physical screenings (CZK 80 for one film) and there will also be packages for film fans available to those who would like to see everything.
It's out! We have revealed the program of this year's festival. This year we will screen the films online (more information coming soon) and the accompanying events will take place physically or online depending on the situation (follow our website for up-to-date information). Everything we have prepared for you this year can be found in the PROGRAM section. The selection of films is in the spirit of the theme of the year "Recovery", which draws attention to the mental and physical health of the queer community. What can you look forward to?
Dear festival visitors, we would like to assure you that the film program will take place according to plan and in accordance with the regulations, i.e. November 5-12, 2020 in Prague and November 14-21, 2020 in Brno. According to the Resolution of the Government of the Czech Republic No. 958 on the adoption of a crisis measure, cinemas can fill a capacity of up to 500 spectators, which applies to all our festival cinemas. We will certainly follow the rules that protect you and those around you (e.g. wearing face masks, using disinfectant), but you will keep your favorite festival. The State Fund of Cinematography of the Czech Republic wrote a clear explanation for the field of audiovisual, where you can read the details.
This year’s Mezipatra starts in Prague on 5th November, and it moves to Brno on 14th November and finishes there on 21st November with a closing ceremony. Are you curious about what we prepared for you? Continue reading!

Follow our social media, where we will inform you about its premiere, which will take place in October. We can't wait to see what this talented director will come up with this time. One thing is clear. Once again, she has put the incredible creativity, energy and commitment into the concept, which makes us so happy to work with her. For now, we bring you a few photos from the shooting.

On August 13, we organize the distribution premiere of the film Lola, which will be presented by the director Laurent Micheli himself in the Lucerna cinema. And he won't be alone. The protagonist of the film, Mya Bollaers, will also honor the audience with her visit. In the story, she convincingly portrayed the emotional transformation of the main character Lola and was nominated for a number of film awards for her performance. The role of an unrestrained teenage girl earned her a significant Magritte Award for Best Actress. Follow the up-to-date information about the event on Facebook. (Photo: Julie Reggiani)
