About the Prague Independent Film Festival
The Prague Independent Film Festival is an annual event which takes place in the historical cinemas of central Prague. Although relatively new, it has already managed to bring together talented and outstanding filmmakers from all over the world.
The most innovative and original pictures made by young and established directors are shown at the festival. Our belief is that true art of auteur cinema should be in the center of attention at our festival. Organizers of PIFF appreciate great directors such as Federico Fellini, Michelangelo Antonioni, Andrei Tarkovsky and we also believe that among the rising stars of our festival are filmmakers who will revolutionize the world of cinematography. We aim to achieve perfection in all respects and to attract more important cinematographers from the whole world.
ONERE uses magical realism to explore themes of resilience, loss and self-acceptance. The film premiered at the Duluth-Superior Film Festival (USA) last summer and won awards at the Altered Aesthetics Film Festival (USA), Flyway Film Festival (USA), FEDAXV (Chile) and the top “Human Path Award” at the Pi Greco Zen Film Festival (Italy).
