AFO55 will be in the autumn! Find out what it is going to be about.

18. 5. 2020

AFO55 is all about adaptation, and just like all humankind, AFO must adapt. But fear not, you won’t lose your favorite festival, you’ll just have to wait a bit longer. We don’t use the attribute “science” in our name just for show, that’s why our ad hoc strategy stems from scientific research. So what to expect?

AFO55 will take place in the greatest possible, albeit a little unconventional, extent. We know that adaptation can also yield positive changes. We also know that science is about cooperation. With that in mind, AFO55 will merge with the Life Sciences partner festival, which will allow it to split into two locations: Olomouc and Prague. 

The 55th AFO will take place from 1 to 4 October firstly in its home city of Olomouc and then move to Prague to join the 10th Life Sciences Festival from 5 to 8 October. You can also catch the AFO competition films online from 1 to 15 October.

Due to the safety of all participants, the festival will be realized in its more modest form. We will abide by government regulations on capacity and prefer to postpone the music and accompanying program to better times. You can still look forward to several screening halls, where this year’s selection of the best documentaries will be presented.

Thank you all for your support and see you in fall!
