and Andy Fehu’s dark buddy comedy about a pair of YouTubers, Shoky & Morthy: The Last Big Thing (see the news).

The festival has also revealed the name of the first guest. Karlovy Vary will honour US actor-director-writer Ethan Hawke with the Festival President's Award. “We are thrilled to welcome an artist we’ve been admiring for a long time to Karlovy Vary. In 2018, KVIFF paid tribute to the Austin Film Society [see the news], and it is exciting to extend our appreciation of this renowned organisation’s work by honouring an actor and director who is so closely connected to the Texan independent film scene,” said artistic director Karel Och and executive director Kryštof Mucha. Hawke will introduce Paul Schrader’s thriller First Reformed, in which he plays a parish pastor plunged into a crisis of faith.

The full line-up of the 55th KVIFF is available here.
