Pavel Tomešek has Passed Away
Manager of the Mír 70 cinema in Krnov, CZ
24.03.1965 - 26.06.2022

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Martin Bodesinsky, Krnov Date: 26.06.2022
"The 70mm community in the Czech Republic has lost a big enthusiast, friend, a long-time manager of the Mir 70 cinema and the organizer of the internationally famous 70mm film festival Krrr! Even though we expected it, we still can't believe it. We will all miss you here…" Martin Bodesinsky, Krnov

On Sunday 26 June 2022 in the early morning hours, Mr. Pavel Tomešek, the manager of the Mír 70 cinema in Krnov, lost his long and unequal battle with an insidious illness.

His professional life had been connected with various cinemas for more than four decades and under his leadership, the cinema in Krnov became a unique place, combining state-of-the-art projection and sound technology with fully functional equipment for the projection of nowadays unused film materials and formats.

He managed to transfer his enthusiasm for screening classic film strips to his team of co-workers and thus wrote the Krnov cinema into the imaginary map of cinemas hosting international 70mm film festivals. Thanks to the KRRR! festival, visitors from all over the world have been coming to Krnov for more than 15 years.

70mm projection was Pavel's love of his life. He has helped to preserve and re-establish it not only in "his" cinema, but thanks to his enthusiasm and knowledge, the audience in Zlín and Dobruška could experience this technical rarity at least once, and he has also established close cooperation with the operators of the 70mm amphitheatre in Banská Bystrica, so that the festival there and the festival in Krnov are connected both in terms of programming and personnel.

Last but not least, we should not forget about the support of cinephiles and young filmmakers, for whom the Krnov cinema has managed to create the necessary background for both the creation and presentation of new works.

For his activities, Pavel Tomešek has been nominated several times for the Personality of Culture in Krnov and this year he will also receive an award from the Association of Czech Film Clubs at the 48th Summer Film School in Uherské Hradiště.

Pavel, thank you for everything.

Pavel's "Oscar
"To Pavel Tomasek for his long time dedication to Czech 70mm projectors and the Krnov 70mm festival"

Hello, Paul and Thomas,

I have received a symbolic Oscar statuette from you for my many years of work as a projectionist and organizer of the KRRR Film Fest. I was very surprised and especially pleased. You can't imagine how happy I was. Especially in these difficult times, when at the same time I'm fighting with an illness. You have confirmed to me that what I am doing even in the 70mm area is not completely useless and has some sense. Thank you very much!

From Krnov
