Research Project and Talks – Jarmila Novotná in Movies

Our focus in 2013 was on education. For that reason, the second year of the festival offered lectures and workshops intended for the general public and all ages.

The historian Markéta Nedvědová prepared a very unique lecture on Jarmila Novotná in Movies. It is a presentation of her more than year-long research effort which was realized with the support of our association. The Association of Chateau Liteň organizes these lectures occasionaly but constantly.

A selection of the presentation can be found at our web site in the section dedicated to Jarmila Novotná (here).
