“With our program, we are also trying to reach the viewers from the many minorities living here. We have included two films from Vietnam this year, but the main criteria for their selection was their quality,” says Febiofest's program director, Stefan Uhrik. Both Vietnamese films are vastly different in genre. The first is an apocalyptic sci-fi, 2030: most of Vietnam is flooded owing to global warming in this film.

“Parents with their children are welcome at Febiofest as well. Visually and artistically, the most interesting film of this year's Febiofest Junior is the animated The Song of the Sea, and we wish good luck to the film at this weekend's Oscar competition,” says the festival's program director, Hana Cielova. Febiofest honours the rule that children's films should be entertaining and educational, not only for the young audience, but should be equally enjoyed by adults as well. The viewers thus can see world blockbusters as well as independent films, which they cannot see otherwise in the Czech Republic.

Jean-Jacques Annaud, a French director, scriptwriter and producer, won his first Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film for his debut, Black and White in ColorQuest for Fire, a film awarded the Oscar for Best Costume Design, tells the story of humanity's ancient history and will be presented at Febiofest as a part of the Tribute to Annaud. Annaud's filmography includes stories based on worldwide best-sellers such as The Name of the Rose with Sean Connery, and Seven Years in Tibet, which earned the director a lifelong ban from crossing the Chinese borders. Annaud also directed a war drama, Enemy at the Gates, starring Jude Law.

Culinary Cinema will also host distinguished personalities: apart from Berlinale's director Dieter Kosslick; the director of Foodies, Charlotte Landelius, and star Alba Rohrwacher, who also appears in the “gastro-erotic delicacy” of I Am Love, and who is featured in her own Tribute at this year's festival. Thirty-five-year-old Alba Rohrwacher earned great respect of critics for her role of a mentally disturbed daughter in a drama from 2008, Giovanna's Father. She also appeared in a similar role in an adaptation of Paolo Giordano's Italian best-seller, The Solitude of Prime Numbers, where she portrayed a traumatised girl who is looking for her place within society after a life tragedy.
