Karel Och, artistic director of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, is here in Odessa as member of the jury for the International competition. We had therefore the chance to ask him a few questions that may shine a light on how we could all continue our journey within the realm of cinema: as viewers, filmmakers and guardians of cinematic talent.

Meeting with Karel Och, director of the International Film Festival in Karlovy Vary and a jury member of the OIFF International Competition Program, took place at the workshop. “We are one of the festivals that do not identify criteria for film selection. When you identify something clearly, you limit not only the films, but also yourself. In a year, your opinion and the films might go beyond this definition”.
