Another year has passed and the next 70mm Film Fest regularly taking place in Krnov is knocking on the door again. Characteristic festival logo created by Filmochod agency has several meanings: Mainly as a beginning of the name Krnov or assumed as interjection it evokes the typical noise from projectors and in combination with graphic design represents the number 70 arranged with fingers.

• Go to Behind the Scenes of KRRR! with Ivan Školuda
• Go to Ze Zákulisí KRRR! s Ivan Školuda

After a year the majestic cinema Mir 70 will become a place where true film fans of celluloid from many European counties – especially enthusiasts loving the widescreen format – will meet. Three days of a rare occasion to see great 70mm movies screened on a 105 square meters of slightly curved screen and good opportunity to remember history of "old school" cinema technology in the digital era of today.

The foundation of this festival goes back to 2005 when a small 7OMM seminar has since spread wide to the international popularity with visitors not only from the Czech Republic but also from many European counties, including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Poland, Slovak republic, United States and United Kingdom.

Unique cine-meeting organized by the Municipal cultural centre in Krnov under patronage of the Town Hall and mayor of Krnov together with State Cinematography Fund and supported by many volunteers.

Special thanks go to the festival team, especially to Pavel Tomešek, former manager of Mír 70 theatre, the man who set the whole thing in motion...

Opening ceremony is planned at 19:00 on Friday (opening speeches and group photo).

Lectures 2024:

• "Kokeš about 70mm", Talk by Radomír Kokeš, is scheduled for Saturday at 12:15.
• "Behind the KRRR!", an illustrated lecture by Ivan Školuda about the interesting background of the 70mm film preparations for this year's festival is scheduled for Saturday at 13:00.
