About the V4 Film Series:
The V4 Film Festival runs online from October 15-28 and will feature contemporary cinematic gems including Corpus Christi (Poland), Havel (Czech Republic), Bet on Revenge (Hungary) and Amnesty (Slovakia), as well as a Kids Corner of cartoons from each of the countries. We invite you to join us on a riveting journey to Central Europe through a number of contemporary cinematic gems from Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. Great neighbors with strong cultural ties, the four countries are known as the Visegrad Group (Visegrad 4 or V4) - an alliance established in 1991 to further integrate our region and increase our political, economic and cultural cooperation. This year, Poland assumed the Group’s annual, rotational presidency, aiming to actively promote Central Europe and the V4 as a strong regional and global partner. This year’s Visegrad 4 Film Series, now in its ninth iteration, is brought to you virtually and available to audiences across the United States!
