Czech comedy Kolya, the 1997 Academy-award winning movie for Best Foreign Language Film, will officially launch Czech Embassy Manila’s yearlong cinematic celebration, “CZECH MOVIE GEMS”.

“Kolya” movie, centered on a man’s sudden “twist” in life brought by unexpected circumstances of love, is a tender comedy of genuinely endearing characters – truly a must-watch that should not be missed. Kolya was also acclaimed by six Czech Lion awards to Kolya for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Editing.

“Czech Movie Gems” film festival, organized in cooperation with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), will last January 2018 – January 2019 on monthly basis (showing every second Wednesday of the month). Films, personally selected by Czech Ambassador Jaroslav Olša, jr., will showcase the most interesting Czech movies of the last decades, including award-winning masterpieces, unique genre films, as well as the top grossing viewers favorites.
