I, Olga Hepnarova I, Olga Hepnarova

The festival's 20th edition will run from November 5 to December 2, celebrating the best of Czech cinema, music, art and theatre.

Strong women and family affairs are key themes in this year's festival, organised by London's Czech Centre, which will feature black and white existential drama I, Olga Hepnarová, about the life of the last woman to be hanged in Czechoslovakia. Classic films, including the 1920s avant-garde Erotikon, featuring live accompaniment by Lydia Kavina (theremin), Thomas Ang (piano), and foreign language Oscar winner The Shop On The High Street will also be shown.

There will also be an evening dedicated to A Country In Motion: Films From Burma followed by a discussion with Burmese filmmakers and experts, reflecting on the films and Czech – Burmese parallels, Václav Havel's friendship with Aung San Suu Kyi, and the input given by Czech filmmakers to Burmese documentarians.
