KARLOVY VARY: FNE has teamed up with FIPRESCI to organise a group of 20 critics attending KVIFF to rate the films in the Main Competition and the East of the West Competition giving the films 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 stars.
5 is the best and 1 is the worst. The ratings give an overview of critics’ opinions from a large number of countries and provide insights to what critics in many different countries think about the programme.
