The Great 5
For years now, the Great 5 program has been keeping us informed about the box-office hits in Germany, UK, Italy, France and Spain. Our original idea was to show their hits with a million or more local viewers. However, we realized with time that even such established cinematographies like Spanish or British one have problems competing with U.S. blockbusters, so we decided to change our criteria for selection. As comedies prevail among box-office hits, we are trying to include in this program other genres that have either performed well in theaters in their countries or have been recognized by film professionals and awarded at international festivals. We hope to keep drawing the attention of the audience and media to the hit films of the above mentioned cinematographies.
This program has been realized in cooperation with EUNIC – the network of international cultural institutes from EU countries. This year, as part of the presentation of EUNIC Network, we will also show an Austrian film – Austria being the sixth member of this European association.
