Kinolab Film Festival

2 – 3 Nov 2018

I do not steal movies, but I can not legally download them online. How relevant is this argument?


The development of social media and the availability of new technologies created an environment enabling sharing of content that is valuable for the development of our society. But at the same time questions about sharing audio-visual content without the knowledge of the author arose. Promotion of creative works via the Internet has never been easier, yet nothing is free.

The questions related to piracy and copyright will be targeted through documentary films and subsequent discussions with experts at the Kinolab Film Festival in Prague, with the subtitle How technology made us share.

Open to general public, specifically to internet users, the festival offers not only a platform for discussion, but will serve as a practical guide to online behaviour. The festival will offer a rich program within two days. Through thematic documentaries and feature films, panel discussion with experts and lectures it will offer an insight into the principles of online sharing.


The festival will address the most common ways of sharing material online, such as streaming, referencing, or downloading through practical examples, along with explaining the conditions under which authoring works can be used without the author's consent or how users can trace the work the author has agreed to with the use of the work.

Nothing to hide | Není co skrývat
Dir: Marc Meillassoux

The interference with individual’s privacy and rights by corporations or states and

(Italy, 2016, 1h 33min, Film Europe, CZ sub)

Dir: Simon Klose
(Sweden | Denmark | Norway | Great Britain | Netherlands | Germany, 2013, 1h25min, CC,
Cz sub)
Internet piracy is a phenomenon that is presented as something bad by the majority of the
media. But the background of the dispute between the three founders of Pirate Bay and the
entertainment industry is a much more complex question regarding the freedom of the
Internet, thinking, sharing and spreading ideas. In the era of the Internet, the question of
ownership must be re-evaluated.

3:45 pm
Panel Discussion 1
Pirate without own cause | Pirátem bez vlastní viny (CZ only)
"I don’t want to steal movies, but I can not download them anywhere online". Is this
argument really relevant? The panel discussion will deal with current models of film
distribution in the Czech Republic and with one’s ability to easily and safely watch a film.

After the successful film "Perverts Guide to Cinema”, director Sophie Fiennes and Slovenian
controversial thinker Slavoj Žižek created another remarkable documentary reflection of the
society in order to reveal the way to the essence of ideology - dreams form our collective

also commercials, clips and musical compositions have been subjected to a sharp analysis.

Panel discussion 2
Folk art of cyberspace | Lidové umění kyberprostoru (CZ only)

The Square | Čtverec
Dir: Ruben Östlund
(Sweden | Germany | France | Denmark, 2017, 2h 30min, Film Europe, CZ sub)
The prestigious Museum of Modern Art prepares a conceptual exhibition where the central
idea is a square in which the rule of equality and tolerance applies. In cooperation with the
PR agency, the museum is looking for an ideal strategy to make the whole event visible in
the crowded media space. But what happens when the curator of the exhibition, Cristian,
becomes a victim of bizarre pocket theft just before the start? In his hunt for the perpetrator
he finds himself in situations that lead him to question his own moral patterns and, like the
whole society, the conceptual exhibition begins to drown in a bizarre confusion that defines
the tension between liberal values, egoism and selfishness.
