Brno, Sep 23 (BD) – The Serial Killer Festival will return to Brno for the third year in a row, in spite of the coronavirus pandemic. This year the festival has moved from the cinema to the internet to allow greater flexibility in uncertain times. The latest series will be released on online platforms and the first episodes will premiere in the Goose on a String Theatre (Divadlo Husa na Provázku) in Brno.

The festival celebrates high-quality productions full of drama, comedy and suspense. It connects creators from across Europe and presents their work to the public. The festival pays tribute to quality content and the competition itself is a platform for viewers, academics and professionals to meet and share their enthusiasm for the best of the series

A unique bronze sculpture was created for the festival by Václav Sigurson Kostohryz, who also designed the smallest statue in Brno – the little man sitting on the clock on Česká. The Serial Killer Award depicts a serial killer right after a murder, carrying weapons hidden in the pockets of his coat. He has 13 pockets to symbolize the 13 series.
