The mission and goal of the ZLÍN FILM FESTIVAL is the presentation of contemporary world film for children and youth in the Czech Republic as well as an exhibition of Czech films.

2019 Festival Coverage

Festival Themes and Visual Concept:

The main theme of the 58th Zlín Film Festival is linked to this year's 100th anniversary of the founding of the Republic. Complimenting this will be an Austrian movie section reminding of the fact that the southern neighbor is also celebrating the same anniversary. The visual concept of this year's festival is based on the playful monkeys of artist Petr Nikl.

The basic idea follows on last year's visual concept, which was inspired by the character of Pippi Longstocking, who also had a monkey. The original and playful graphic element of letters made up of silhouettes of monkeys has been brought to this year's concept.
