Contribution to World Cinema Award

Oscar-winning director Marcel Ophuls to receive the Contribution to World Cinema Award

This year, the Ji.hlava IDFF will host the acclaimed Oscar-winning documentarian Marcel Ophuls. In his feature-length films, Ophuls looks back on the era of German Nazi regime, its brutal oppression, but also explores the issues of conscience and responsibility. The festival will showcase his acclaimed films The Sorrow and Pity and Hôtel Terminus, as well as a lesser-known documentary focusing on the Munich Treaty, Munich or Peace in our Time.

Marcel Ophuls will accept the Contribution to World Cinema Award at the festival's closing ceremony on October 28, three days before his 90th birthday.
