Michaela Pavlatova's Faithless Games was the winner of the GoldenKingfisher Award for Best Feature Film at this year's Finale Festival of Czech Films in Plzen (29 March - 4 April)
The festival's International Jury called Faithless Games "a well-crafted work reflecting the unpredictable aspects of everyday life." The film had previously been shown in competition at San Sebastian and Cottbus last year.
Meanwhile, Vladimir Moravek's Bored In Brno, which took five prizes at the Czech Lion Awards earlier this year, received the Kodak Vision Special Prize. The International Jury described this first-time feature as "courageous and edgy in its visual form, marking the arrival of a distinct new voice to the Czech film scene."
Moravek's comedy was also presented with the Audience Award, Students Jury Award and the Association of Czech Film Clubs Award and had to have two extra screenings during the festival to meet the audience demand.
