PLZEN: Karin Babinská, whose popular and internationally acclaimed road-movie Dolls, won the 20th Finále Plzen, returns to Plzen to compete with the romantic film Wings of Christmas (Kridla Vanoc).

The film, written and directed by Babinská, was released into Czech cinema distribution in November 2013 by Falcon with the similar success (257,000 admissions), thanks in part to the casting of the very popular Czech singer and theatre actor, Richard Krajčo.

The 27 m CZK (800,000 EUR) film was produced by Cineart TV Prague; coproduced by Czech TelevisionIO- in/out, and Michael Samuelson Lighting Prague; and supported bythe Czech State Fund for the Support and Development of Czech Cinematography, Film Industry Support Programme.
