Written by: FFT Webmaster | May 31st, 2011

The Zlin Film Festival in the Czech Republic is one of the leading festivals around the world devoted to films, videos and new media works for the children and young adult sector. The Festival, which runs in the UNESCO Heritage City of Zlin in eastern Czech Republic, will open today with the world premiere of UNDER THE DUVET, a

new Czech film that is the first made completely in 3D. The film will unspool in the historic Grand Cinema, one of the last remaining movie palaces in Eastern Europe. The film will ultimately be released in cinemas in mid-June.  The showcasing of the film, which contains 22 original songs composed by René Rypar from the band Support Lesbiens, marks the first time in the 51 year history of the Festival that a 3D film will open the event and also be in the running in the Golden Slipper competition.
