The Cinema Mundi International Film Festival is a film festival, inaugurated in 2010, and held annually at the end of February, beginning of March in Brno, Czech Republic.

History

The first Cinema Mundi International Film Festival took place in late February, early March 2010 in Brno, Czech Republic. The inspiration for the festival came from the tradition of Brno Exhibition Centre, which was established in 1928 and since then has been attracting international exhibitors to Brno. Josef Čadík, a film fan who has been operating mobile open-air cinemas in the Czech Republic and Central Europe since 1991, established the festival in the desire to create in Brno a similar platform for the world of film. He is the current director of the festival. The main partner of the festival is the South Moravian Region whose administrative body is seated in Brno.

Program

In addition to screening the most recent selection of films made in Europe and the USA, the festival aims at screening films representing the contemporary national cinemas of the countries of Central and South America, Africa and Asia. When selecting films from these countries in particular, the festival commission pays their special attention to the films that have been submitted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the United States (Oscars) for consideration in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. These films then often become a part of the main competitive section of the Cinema Mundi International Film Festival program. Additional sections of the festival include the latest Czech-language feature films and feature films that represent contemporary film art from three selected countries or a particular region.

Festival jury and winners

Since the second year of the festival in 2011, the Student Jury selects the best films. The Jury is formed by students of Masaryk University, the second largest university in the Czech Republic, whose students participate in the realization and organization of the festival to a great extent. Four Best Films have been chosen and six Special Awards have been bestowed by the Student Jury in the past four years:
