The 25th Prague International Film Festival - Febiofest will take place in Prague from March 15 until 23, 2018

It was founded in 1993 by FEBIO, an independent film and TV company. Starting as an enthusiastically organized, basically no-budget event for a couple of friends and film buffs, FEBIOFEST has grown during the past years into one of the largest film festivals in the Czech Republic, which nevertheless still maintains its original profile as an audience-friendly festival.

What makes Febiofest so great? Alongside a handful of international premieres competing for top prizes at the fest, most of the 150+ films screened are high-profile holdovers from top fests of 2017 like Cannes, Toronto, and Telluride that have yet to see wide release.

In recent years, FEBIOFEST has hosted renowned directors and actors such as Nanni Moretti, Claude Lelouch, Peter Weir, Olivier Assayas Roman Polanski, Volker Schloendorff, Isztvan Szabo, Tsai Ming-Liang, Tom Tykwer, Hal Hartley, Andrey Konchalovski, Armin Mueller Stahl, Nikita Michalkov, Carlos Saura or Claudia Cardinale.
