Czech That Film is a film festival of the best Czech films held throughout the United States every year.

Guests can enjoy the films Friday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday afternoons at 1:00 p.m.

Aug 23 & 24: Jan Palach
Jan Palach, an uncompromising young man, made the ultimate sacrifice in the hope of rousing the nation from its growing lethargy and of protesting the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. This biopic describes the last months of Palach’s life, describing his path from an affectionate son, devoted friend and sensitive philosophy student to the “Torch number 1.” Length: 124 minutes. In Czech with English subtitles.
