Ben Browder is best remembered for his central roles as Colonel Cameron Mitchell in Stargate and John Crichton in Farscape. However, he also starred in a number of other TV series and films. Ben Browder will be present during the Saturday and Sunday programs on July 1 and 2! We can look forward not only to talks, but also to a limited number of photo and autograph sessions together, as you already know from Comic-Con Prague!
Thank you to the members of the past and present Chotěboř Town Council. With the previous council, we broached the subject of supporting the restoration of the Fantasia Festival. And despite the changes at the town hall, we have also received the support of the new town leadership headed by Mayor Ondřej Kozub and Deputy Mayor Tomáš Škaryd. This year's support is really great and we are very grateful for it. Thank you!
Once again, you can look forward to the legendary KAFEKÁRA, which will bring you coffee experiences. But you won't find it under the linden tree, we will place it opposite at the cinema to make room for large tents and umbrellas by the Sokolovna. For your coffee drinking comfort, we will add seating with umbrellas. We are negotiating for an ice cream stand and we are also counting on pancakes so you can have something good with your coffee.
More than 700 participants are registered for the 28th Festival Fantazie in the original premises and with a renewed programme. Are you among them? Don't miss out on a literally fantastic holiday! 30.6.-9.7.2023.
Two nights ago, we quietly launched the option of booking for less than a full or half term in most accommodations. Where we only have the last room or two, we are still only offering full time. Two conditions remain for the other accommodations - 2 or more nights (not just because of the cost of changing beds), and the inability to book without first Friday or second Saturday if you want an adjacent day.
A separate option for accommodating parents with (young) children is already listed on the application form. This also creates an obligation to use this option so that other participants in the regular class are not disturbed by the children and the children by the other participants, as they miss each other in the day/night rhythm. Please respect this rule. Thank you. You can arrange for help in the Parents with Kids group on FF.
HOTEL Filippi in Ždírec nad Doubravou and HOTEL Střela in Krucemburk are now available for the first and second half. As well as the HOSTEL Myslivna in Rozsochatec. We also offer two halfs for DORMITORY in hotel Fantazie, for military beds in the Smetanova Elementary School classrooms (complete bedding, no sleeping bag needed) in the BED category and for basement 5-bed rooms in the Hotel Fantazie in the BED PLUS category.
So far (with the exception of sleeping bags) you can only sign up for the whole time. Business Academy double rooms Hostel+ and Dormitory rooms are sold out, there are a few places left in the Hostel category. Pension Bene is sold out, hotel Vysočina will be sold out by the time we finish this post. We recommend that your housemates who didn't make it to book the Hotel Fantazie.
Thank you for your participation! "At the end of every Comic-Con, we get very tired. But we're even more grateful. If we had to single out one piece of feedback that foreign journalists, cast members, and other visitors from "far away" agreed on: they've never attended a con with so many smiling, thoughtful, and positive fans. And we join in. Thank you for being the way you are. And we'll do our best to keep you coming back."
The rich programme of the 28th edition of the FF has already been arranged. You can find it on the website in the Program section. The program will run in the cinema (films, photo and signing sessions), in the Sokolovna (video games, 3 lecture halls), in the hall (board games, video games, 2 lecture halls) and in the DDM Junior (4 lecture halls).
Why? An event is like a twin page, they can't be without each other. Because you will learn a lot of important information in the event that won't be here. Here we'll cover more of the attractions, in the event more of the practical stuff, the details... Occasionally we'll add a contest, give a tip or behind the scenes info for the real fans. We'll also recap some of the posts on this page so you don't miss guests or specials on the program. So stay tuned!
Remember? The board game room in the sports hall, the video game room in Sokolovna, the cinema full of movies and the bar in Junior? The last time we enjoyed it was in 2019, then came the disaster, the moving, the low attendance of the first hotel edition. And now, after four years, we will return "home"! You can look forward to international actors and other interesting guests, opening ceremony, cosplay contest, theatre performance, exhibition, concert and discos...
You must have seen the Sokolovna in Chotěbora, built thanks to the fans from LEGO kits. Its authors, headed by Ondřej Široký, have started to move the project CONečně z kostek to the next building phase. KD JUNIOR! A new campaign will be launched in the summer where you will be able to support the construction of the second model and get your figure in the popular room of the oldest historical building of the festival.
We are preparing FF at the same time as Comic-Con Prague 2023. You must be following all the news on FB or IG, so you know the guests, program expansion and other details. The 4. edition will surpass the previous ones, you have a lot to look forward to. At CCP you will also meet Festival Fantazie. At the FF promo booth you'll find a LEGO model of the Sokolovna, a Tardis booth, a photo gallery from past FFs and information about the next 28th FF.
Of course, we do not neglect the Fantazie Hotel. The first spring event for the dance club is over and after Comic-Con Prague the season will be in full swing. But we are also working on the hotel itself: In the boiler room we are resealing the gas boilers and other works. We are changing the windows in 1 room, changing the carpets in 3 rooms, changing the bunk beds in 5 rooms, and changing the bedside tables in most of them.
The preparation of the 28th edition of the popular FF is running in parallel with the preparation of Comic-Con Prague and SuperFFan has learned a few tricks from Comic-Con Girl. You can look forward to a lot of news in the organization and the program! What? You want to know WHERE IT'S GOING TO BE? We're working on meeting the conditions for FF to return in its original space. Keep your fingers crossed! Thanks to artist Dan Cerny for the SuperFFan.
OutCon and video and board game tournaments, films and a few individual shows remain to be added, but the vast majority of the program of over 600 entries has been released. Program layout, Program, Program descriptions. And with the photo we are trying to show you that even if you don't choose in the program, you won't be bored on FF ;-).
Tonight at midnight is the deadline to get a discount on admission to FF 2022. Over 750 participants have registered so far (more than last year) and accommodation is only available for the second half of the FF. Sleeping bags are also available for the first half. The program will be a few days behind due to various complications with us and some line leaders, but you can find most of it already HERE We are ramping up our preparations and look forward to seeing you there!
After the first rush of registrations, it has slowed down and this is a chance for those who want to stay in beds at the Business Academy, the Practical School (recommended, it is the closest to the venue) and the Vysočina Hotel. We currently have over 300 participants and are looking forward to surpassing last year's turnout. Also, who wouldn't want to meet other fans at one of the few traditional cons, finally free of the cloaks, tests and other annoyances, right?
222 participants have already registered for the FESTIVAL FANTAZIE 2022! Accommodation is still available in the hostel and dormitory of the Business Academy and Practical School, in the Hotel+ Vysočina and of course in a sleeping bags in the Smetanova Elementary School. Fill in your order for entrance fees, accommodation, food, accessories and even transport from Prague in our Amber system and ensure a literally fantastic holiday!
