Anthropoid is being produced by US-based studio LD Entertainment. In the film, which deals with the dramatic events around the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich, Dornan will play the role of one of the paratroopers, Jan Kubiš. The film Anthropoid delves into one of the most emotional moments in modern Czechoslovak history.
The Festival runs from July 3rd to July 11th in the Czech Republic.
The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival is the largest film festival in the Czech Republic and the most prestigious such festival in Central and Eastern Europe. It is one of the oldest A-list film festivals (i.e., non-specialized festivals with a competition for feature-length fiction films), a category it shares with the festivals in Cannes, Berlin, Venice, San Sebastian, Moscow, Montreal, Shanghai, and Tokyo. Among filmmakers, buyers, distributors, sales agents, and journalists, KVIFF is considered the most important event in all of Central and Eastern Europe.
Every year, the festival presents some 200 films from around the world, and regularly hosts famous and important filmmakers. The Karlovy Vary festival is intended for both film professionals and the general public, and offers visitors a carefully designed programme, excellent facilities and a broad range of other services.
