The lineup for the 48th annual Karlovy Vary International Film Festival has been set. The festival held in the Czech Republic will run from June 28-July 6 and screen more than 200 films with six world and seven international premieres.
While the slate for the main competition was announced last week, the films included in the Out of the Past section were just announced today and include the premiere of “All My Good Countrymen” by Vojtech Jasny, a restored version of “Heaven’s Gate,” and the world premiere of Pavo Marinkovic’s documentary “Occupation, the 27th Picture.” Marinkovic’s film focuses on director Lordan Zafranovic’s film, “Occupation in 26 Pictures” which screened at the Cannes Film Festival 35 years ago. Zafranovic will be in attendance for the world premiere.
The festival will also host two restored silent films from the 1920s. The first is J.S. Kolar’s “The Arrival of Darkness,” a Czech film to be screened in honor of the country’s 70th anniversary of film archiving. Alfred Hitchcock’s 1927 film “The Ring” will also be shown, and both films will feature live musical accompaniment.
