The pilot year of TV and online series festival in Central and Eastern Europe.
Serial killer is meant for anybody addicted to (or at least interested in) contemporary television production.
Be so kind and send us a contribution. You will thus enable us to invite serial stars and help us to organise a killing party in the heart of Brno.
We are a new festival of television and internet serials. We will present the most popular contemporary series from all over the world as well as less known projects from Central and Eastern Europe. We offer blood, sweat and tears on the screen and a great party with Czech and foreign celebrities off the screen. We want the best series from the region you haven’t had a chance to see so far. We are preparing loaded Industry Days focused on television field for professionals and a competition festival of series from Central and Eastern Europe for all bloodthirsty souls. This all is taking place from 2nd to 5th May on several stages in the centre of Brno.
You can expect a lot. During three days, you will visit more than 24 program blocks which will present the latest and best works from quality TV as well as beloved classics. From the Czech background for instance, you can look forward to a unique premiere of a serial made by authors of Okresní přebor (District League in English). You should not miss a masterclass with Aňa Geislerová and other guests either. Other program items will be revealed stepwise!
We have chosen the city of Brno – and there is no irony in it. Brno is becoming a popular experience destination praised even by lifestyle columns of Guardian or NY Times. Some of the most important world companies operate here. Sixty-nine thousand students live here. Serial Killer wants to put an end to jokes about Brno insufficiency and go to meet its huge potential.
We simple want to transform Brno into a kind of Sundance of Central Europe. Or Moravian Vary at the minimum.
Kamila Zlatušková is the festival president. She used to work as a creative producer in Czech Television or as a subdean of FAMU.
Jakub Horák is a marketing expert, producer, digital age consultant, writer and Zen seeker. He likes Brno but that is just one of his many positive character features.
Anna Herza Tydlitátová is a producer. Her debut was awarded APA producer award. She organizes international Industry Days for the pilot year of the festival.
Jiří Flígl is the festival program director. He works as a film journalist. He used to work as the head of acquisitions in Czech Television.
Adela Hrivnáková is a scenarist, advertising specialist and versatile artist, who nowadays composes music under a pseudonym of Shirley Nietzsche. She is the head of marketing in our festival team.
Jaroslav Cerman is a stand-up comedian and journalist. He has gained experience in a presidential campaign and is responsible for the festival facebook profile.
The unique festival design was created by the graphic designer Martin T. Pecina, the international European Design Award winner. He explains: “The festival visual style represents an obeisance to furious film titles of trash cinematography of the 1940s and 50s. Horrors, monsters, panic in the streets, death and killing. That is why I used a diagonal composition, casted shadows, pathetic exclamations, combination of script and bold fonts and negative texts on a dark background. The typography is accompanied by various television distortions, noises and signal as well as judgement failures. “
All our material rewards can be collected in the festival venue. In case of exclusive rewards, we will contact you and arrange your reward fulfilment. All material rewards were made according to the unique visual style of Martin T. Pecina, which means they are already extremely valuable and their value can only go higher in time (even to astronomical dimensions).
We want to organise the best serial event not only in the Czech Republic but in the whole Central and Eastern Europe. However, this is the first year, the pilot year – with everything that includes. This means, for instance, that you have no money since you could not earn any during a previous year. That is why we need money so badly.
A lot of television content is free of charge. But at what price? If we want to get the best content and the most famous authors to our “Moravian Silicon Valley”, we can´t do without your help.
If a serial is on but there is nobody to watch it, does it make any sound? Is anything happening at all? Television might need nothing but your watching. However, a good quality festival demands a bit of you as well. At least from the financial point of view. At least during the first year.
If we succeed in collecting our target amount, we promise you the best party with your favourite serial stars. We promise you a serial festival so good that you will not be able to wait for its next year!
Dear friends, serial maniacs, common people, we are the same as you. And we can´t make it without you.
