Czech Film Fest Battle Escalates

In the war of East Euro special interests, the Union of Czech Producers has thrown its support behind the upstart fest in Prague, rather than the five-decades old, A-certified Karlovy Vary festival.

Supporters of the Prague fest – the Golden Golem Intl. Film Festival – say their 50,000-plus American residents should give them the edge. Ex-Karlovy Vary fest director Antonin Moskalyk heads the Golem effort and claims UCP endorsement.

UCP support is crucial in wresting A status from Vary; Intl. Federation of Film Producers Assn. allows only one A fest per nation.
