Among filmmakers, buyers, distributors, sales agents, and journalists, KVIFF is considered the most important event in all of Central and Eastern Europe.
Every year, the festival presents some 200 films from around the world and regularly hosts famous and important filmmakers. The Karlovy Vary festival is intended for both film professionals and the general public and offers visitors a carefully designed programme, excellent facilities and a broad range of other services.
