Prague's FAMU in NYC ... and upcoming Disappearing Act III

To: Irena Kovarova <

Greetings all!

We just about wrapped up the final list of 18+ films and events of the
third year of the European film showcase called DISAPPEARING ACT III.
I am really thrilled with the line-up and guests and all the new
partnerships. We will kick off the program on April 6 at the Bohemian
National Hall with the NY premiere of CZECH DREAM, director Filip
Remunda and opening party. I'll write more very soon but mark your
calendars for April 6-14. All screenings are free and all films
screened from a good quality digital format. Hope you will come.

In the meantime, you can get a taste of FAMU, the Prague Film Academy
lectures and workshops in New York, presented in collaboration with
the Czech Center at BNH for the second year in a row. This year, more
than a half of the programs is free and all programs are open to
general public. Two deans (one former, one current) and professors of
film history, screenwriting, cinematography and directing will have
weekend sessions starting next Saturday, March 19 followed by two more
weekends in April and May. See the program summary and link below.

Cheers to the Spring weather!

Best, Irena

Located in the heart of Prague, FAMU, the Czech National Film Academy,
