The 44th International TOURFILM Festival of Tourism Films and the 18th National TOUR REGION FILM Festival of Tourism Films are already behind us. The festival, which took place in Karlovy Vary on October 6 to October 8, featured 500 films and commercials and 352 multimedia presentations from 135 countries during the TOURFILM Festival and 150 films and commercials, as well as 66 multimedia presentations during the TOUR REGION FILM Festival.


The main theme of the program for the public were the Himalayas. We were able to see the performances of several leading Czech mountain climbers, as well as of the actress Iveta Blanarovičová, who also visited the Himalayas. That was followed by the dedication of the book entitled “The Disappearing Ladak – Fragments from the Little Tibet or After my 60s Nothing will Keep me at Home”, along with the introduction of a collection of outdoor equipment for Himalayas and other mountains. Children had fun with Dáda Patrasová and Juliet the Earthworm, or were able to visit one of the attractions and to participate in the children's contest in front of the Thermal Hotel.
