Prague’s music/pic fest unspools

Five-day event unspools at venues across the city

PRAGUE — Prague’s burgeoning Moffom fest (Music on Film/Film on Music) unspools Wednesday with more than 100 screenings and 50 guests who know how to jam.

American expat founder/director John Caulkins calls the five-day fest, unspooling at venues across the city, a great fit with today’s worldly Czechs, adding, “The treasures of African music are just now being discovered.”

The noncompetitive event features Pulitzer-nommed blues ethnographer William Ferris, presenting five films on music of the American South; Julien Temple presenting “Glastonbury,” a look at 35 years of that hippie happening; and world music guru Simon Broughton, co-author of the “Rough Guide to World Music.”

Pics as diverse as the Beastie Boys’ “Awesome; I F***in’ Shot That,” filmed by 50 fans at a Madison Square Garden concert, and a tribute to ’60s Czech musical helmer Ladislav Rychman round out the fest.
