The health and safety of the festival participants are our utmost priority. Therefore, we would like to share with you the practical information related to the current COVID-19 situation. The following health and safety precautions become effective August 2, 2020. We will keep you updated if there is any change.
The Sanitary and epidemiological plan of the 46th Summer Film School Uherské Hradiště has been authorized by the Regional Hygiene Office in Zlín and is available here (only in Czech).
The festival passes are still available for purchase through My LFŠ (after registration) or during the festival at the SFS Festival Centre in front of the Hvězda Cinema. Festival passes are valid for one up to six days.
With respect to the current restrictions, only holders of festival passes are allowed to visit the festival. Therefore, we offer you a new type of the pass – Off-Programme Pass. The off-programme pass costs 50 CZK and allows you to enter our open-air cinemas, exhibitions or children, literary and expert programmes in our tents as well as buy discounted tickets to theatres and concerts. The off-programme pass does not allow you to enter the screening rooms.
All festival participants (including children above six years of age) are required to have at least one of the passes (the festival or off-programme one). In exceptional cases, the registration in My LFŠ will also be accepted (concerts, theatres, see more below). If you’ve already bought a ticket pack, please see updated information here.
Accommodation provided by the festival is still available, but the capacity is fairly limited now. Please see more details in My LFŠ. Accommodation options appear only after selecting your festival pass.
If none of our options is suitable for you, try Airbnb, Booking.com or the Facebook group Ubytování na Letní filmové škole. If you have a car at the SFS, you can also check the facilities in nearby towns (Napajedla, Uherský Brod, Staré Město etc.).
Permitted capacity of venues, face masks, sanitary precautions
Wearing a face mask is mandatory in any indoor venue once the number of visitors exceeds 100. In such cases, ushers will instruct the visitors to wear masks. The current festival’s sanitary precautions are stated in our Sanitary and epidemiological plan and include regular cleaning and disinfection of the venues after every screening.
Since the current state regulations do not include any social distancing measures, we are going to use full capacity of screening halls.
All screening and accommodation venues will be equipped with the noticeboards with sanitary and safety precautions related to the current epidemiological situation. All visitors are strongly advised to follow these manuals and be considerate for the others.
After your arrival
If you encounter any problem, please approach the personnel of the SFS Festival Centre in front of the Hvězda Cinema. We open on Friday, August 7, at 10:00 a.m.
Once you collect your festival pass, please check your accommodation and find out more about the reception opening hours, accommodation rules etc.
Every screening room has its maximum capacity. Please come sooner to get a seat. The festival cannot guarantee that all visitors will get to a selected film screening. That’s why we rerun some of the high-profile films.
The fastest way how to get something to eat is to visit one of the food stalls around the Hvězda Cinema. They should indulge your taste buds even if you’re a vegan or vegetarian.
The left-luggage office is situated in front of the Hvězda Cinema and is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.
Share the festival online
Our official hashtag is #lfs2020. For Instagram Stories, please use @letnifilmovaskola, and we will share them too. When you type “lfs” in stories and gifs, you’ll get this year’s eye as well as the last year’s symbol of a mouth. If you want to express your support on Facebook, add the SFS frame to your profile photo.
Concerts and theatres in Redside Zone Kolejní Square
All registered visitors can purchase the tickets to concerts and theatres for a full price via My LFŠ. All holders of passes can purchase them for a reduced price via My LFŠ or at the SFS Festival Centre outside the Hvězda Cinema.
The tickets to the Redside Zone Kolejní Square will also be available on site one hour prior to the concert/theatre, but these are only for the holders of passes. The ticket sale via My LFŠ for a given day ends at 4:00 p.m. Therefore, we advise you to buy a ticket during the day, either online via My LFŠ, or at the SFS Festival Centre in front of the Hvězda Cinema.
