Uherské Hradiště
23–26 11 2017

About

Year 2014 marked the return of British culture to Uherské Hradiště – specifically to Hvězda Cinema and Mír Club. Former British Film Seminar (1995–2010) entered into the next stage. Besides carrying a new title – UK/UH: Days of British Film and Culture – the festival has taken up new directions, including the visual character and programming.

„"We abandoned the initial philosophy of making an exclusive educational film seminar for a narrow group of students and researchers. We would like to become more open to public, to all those who love British cinema and culture, regardless of whether they visit just one screening or attend the whole festival," explains festival director Josef Korvas.

The zero edition of UK/UH was dedicated to a topic of Sci-fi and Women in Leading Roles. The subsequent, fully-fledged first edition (2015) brought women and monsters back on screens, though having set them into the romantic past times of Jane Austen's novels and Hammer Horror movies. Last year's edition addressed the topical issue of the relationship between Europe and its former colonies - Postcolonial Film. This year we are going to have a look at Troubles - how was the conflict in Northern Ireland in the sixties and nineties called. Troubles will be accompanied with the Latest British Film releases.
