62. The Zlín Film Festival will take place in Zlín from 26 May to 1 June 2022 and will present a total of 276 films from 49 countries. The Czech Republic is represented in this year’s competition by six films, four of which were produced by MAUR film.
Lucie Sunkova’s Susie in the Garden premiered at this year’s Generation Berlinale and, like her previous film The Tree, was created using a demanding glass painting technique. Maria Urbánková’s highly imaginative film Mom is Always Right was supported by the FILMTALENT ZLÍN Endowment Fund and plays with the premise of what would happen if mom’s advice of “Don’t drink so much water, you’ll have frogs in your belly” came true. The trio concludes with the short film Don´t Blow It Up, directed by Alžbeta Mačáková Mišejková, about how hard it can be to forgive one another.
All films were supported by the Czech Film Fund.
