5th 70mm film festival in Krnov: say KRRR! wide and aloud!

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Jakub Klima, Kino Mir 70 Date: 08.04.2010 + 27.05.2010
It was for the fifth time that lovers of widescreen entertainment can enjoy another 70mm event which took place in Krnov during first weekend in April 2010.

The name of the festival - KRRR! – which is a part of the festival logo originated in Filmochod agency which is responsible for unified visual presentation of our event. It has several meanings: KRRR! can be seen as an interjection - a group of consonants which evokes the sound of the projector machine, or from point of view of phonetic terms a combination of voiceless and consonant sounds ( velar and dental) forming (almost unpronounceable for foreigners) beginning of the city name - Krnov. This original idea which approval aroused strong reactions is hoped to attract new visitors as well as fulfil expectations and standard of those faithful patrons from past years " (Taken from a official press release)

On the way to the cinema Mir 70. Notice the design of fingers forming “70”.

With regard to 65th anniversary of the end of World War II we have selected for our festival two titles, which not only somehow reflect war theme but it also will be their cinema premier in the Czech Republic. The first was a biographical epic film "Patton" (1970) and the second was war spy drama "Operation Crossbow" (1965).

On Friday’ opening night after the “kino” premiere of "Patton" we have talked the audience into agreeing on participating in audience-on-stage photo. It was something that has not been done in previous years of our festival but the idea met with overall enthusiasm from almost every visitor and since they like coming to KRRR!, the number of our faithful patrons and newcomers rose to approximately to 170 accredited visitors this year. Thank you!

From time to time we, even must screen some faded, though rare prints never seen in the Czech Republic before but believe it or not, these have almost the best show-up every time.

Also, we would like express our gratitude to our international patrons who either keep coming to Krnov or by going to KRRR! For the first time to get their necessary shot of widescreen amusement, they explore “far-East” and make sure that Krnov is really a place where even eagles not dare to fly. Nah’, Just joking…
We also managed to attract some more audience by bringing “Aliens” to screen so we keep up the good work by showing all films from trilogy. To that, it is a pleasure to thank to Mr. Duncan McGregor (Pictureville Cinema, Bradford, UK) for letting almost packed house (approx. 290 viewers) experience, even though too loud, “slimmy” 70mm print of “Aliens”!
