Tuesday programme


Planet Czechia

9:30 - 11 am, main auditorium

The Czech Republic’s natural heritage is exceptionally rich. Beauty and adventure are within reach: just take a good look! Watch the capercaillie’s mating dance as the sun rises, the ground squirrel play with children in a meadow, the salmon on its pilgrimage down rivers to the sea and back. Experience the thrill of expeditions to spot mountain sheep, beavers, blue frogs and dozens of other heroes. Some you might never have heard of – and yet the wilderness begins just outside our doors. Directed by Marián Polák, Czech Republic, 2017, 81 min.


Onmemory storytelling workshop 

10 am - 1 pm, dílna 2
Every little kid knows how to tell a story! Let’s try telling together the story about the power of memories. The trigger to unlock memories might be a picture, a smell, a color. Telling a story is an opportunity to share a personal experience – and for fun without borders!

Ongoing Czech Television :D workshop

9 am - 7 pm, café

The ongoing workshop offers every day an opportunity for those who haven’t signed for any such workshop to engage in a creative activity. Do you know how to make a hat out of paper? Do you know what a praxinoscope is – and how to use it? Or do you simply feel like painting something?



Lost cinemas are back – in a photo album!

10 am - 12 pm, dílna 1

Where did Jihlava’s cinemas disappear? In this workshop, participants attempt to bring old cinemas back to places that might have forgotten about them. They place pictures and memories into original photo albums they make themselves.
