Just like any other cultural events we are looking forward to the loosening of the COVID-19-related restrictions, but unfortunately we are not able to tell when that will happen. One thing which we do know is that we do not want to organise any sort of reduced version of our festival, since being able to interact with our audience and enjoy a full auditorium is an inseparable part of the Shockproof Film Festival experience. Until we will be able to meet again in our beloved Kino Aero and all the regional cinemas, you can join us for the regular Special Shockproof Online Screenings in the digital realm. However, be aware, that the screenings are geoblocked and mostly only in Czech language.
Keep healthy and stay shockproof!
The Shockproof Film Festival
The Shockproof Film Festival encompasses everything in cinema that is outside of the realms of mainstream or run-of-the-mill. Each year we present a fine selection of the most outstanding, impressive, overlooked, ludicrous and bizarre in horror, extreme, action, gore, camp, B-, C- and even X-rated movies. Our festival is a testament to the fact that there is no better way to see movies than going to the cinema. Nothing can match the excitement of being in an auditorium packed with people in the same mood while the theatre vibrates with screams of terror during a chilling horror film or bursts of laughter while watching some pathetic schlock. But The Shockproof Film Festival even goes beyond that. Each film gets the ideal treatment it deserves – from reverent screenings of classic milestones of genre cinema, accompanied by expert introductions, to interactive screenings, live dubbings and other creative appropriations in the name of an immersive, unique and unforgettable screening experience. With the help of cheap and DIY-style tools some films from our programme can even break the fourth wall and their monsters start wreaking havoc in the auditorium. Trashy movies gain a new life and meaning thanks to our popular creative simultaneous translations and live dubbings into Czech language. We also take the cinephilic adoration of classical film formats to a new level with screenings from archival media such as VHS or even VCD. Do not miss your chance to be a part of this wondrous ride in Prague’s cult repertory cinema Aero.
The Shockproof Rocky Horror Picture Show
Once is never enough so please join us for the irregular periodical screenings of our own shadowcast and interactive show of the ultimate cult sensation, The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
