The annual Karlovy Vary International Film Festival is known for debuting some of the world’s best multinational feature films and documentaries. From July 1-9, various films including the last movie from recently deceased Czech director Jan Nemec and others from Roverto Ando and Jan Hrebejk will compete at the top Czech festival.

“The Wolf from Royal Vineyard,” Nemec‘s final film, will screen in the official competition lineup and is joined by 11 other films, including directors from Italy, Turkey, Poland, Canada, and beyond.

Attila Till’s dark comedy “Kills on Wheels,” about a gang of wheelchair-bound hired killers, will open Karlovy Vary’s unique East of the West competition. A number of female-directed films round out the category, including “Days That Confused” by Triin Ruumet and “House of Others” by Rusudan Glurjidze.

The Documentary Films competition will feature twelve films including “Normal Autistic Film” by Miroslay Janek, “FC Roma” by Tomás Bojar and Rozálie Kohoutová and “Close Relations” by Vitaly Mansky. Audiences will also see “Tower,” which is officially described as a “dramatic reconstruction of the first mediatized school massacre in the United States,” and “Whose Country,” a cutting account of the role police played in the Egyptian revolution.
