Changes in preparations. Open Air Foto Festival will arrive in Český Krumlov in June 2018

15. 8. 2016
There are important changes in preparation of the third edition of Open Air Foto Festival. We have made decision to postpone the festival from June 2017 to June 2018.

In first two years of this event, we set the high level - quality, range and overall level appreciated by visitors both domestic and foreign partners, experts, students and professional photographers. Photographic festival is mostly a non-profit kind of event. Our international orientation, scheduling and overall scope, so attractive for visitors, makes OAFF project which is financially very demanding.
Unfortunately, the current conditions are not sufficient to organize the festival in a regular two-year cycle in 2017 without detriment to the quality that would visitors and festival fans certainly feel. We are very sorry that all of you, who wants to participate, will have to wait few more months. But we believe the time to ensure that sufficient funding is needed. We don´t want to disappoint you.
We want to offer you and interesting and artistic quality program and bring some new ideas for photographic opportunities. We also want to announce next year's student competition Art Room, which was already very successful in its premiere (traveling Art Room exhibition was seen in the cities of the Czech Republic and Slovakia by over 40,000 visitors). We want you to meet top Czech and foreign professional photographers and set out a series of interesting workshops. We want you to enjoy the third OAFF as much as you can and return with full memory cards and beautiful memories.
We believe that you will understand our difficult decision. Of course, we will still keep you informed about festival news. Check our website continuously.  Do you have some useful information or idea for festival organisation?  Please, share with us.
