Filthy Wins Czech Film Critics’ Award

PRAGUE: Filthy / Špína directed by Tereza Nvotová was awarded Best Film and the Innogy Award for the Discovery of the Year at the Czech Critics´Awards 2017.


The Czech Film Critics’ Awards ceremony always precedes the Czech Lions and offers a slightly different take on national cinema. The celebration of 2017 Czech production was all the more surprising since the Best Film and Best Documentary Awards were both ultimately bestowed upon Slovakian filmmakers for their co-produced projects.

Tereza Nvotová nabbed the Best Film Award, and that was not her only appearance on the stage during the ceremony, as she was also named Discovery of the Year.
