-WINE & PUPPETS:

Classic puppet animation is still a hand-made and meditative process, as well as is the traditional winemaking too. Together with selected Moravian eco-vineyards, we organise wine tasting and degustation of the Moravian traditional farmer´s charcuteries, shepherd cheeses and other bio-quality delicacies around the dinner table of the museum. During the relaxed evening, it is possible to watch 2-4 puppet films according to the choice of the visitors, and observe the working process of puppet animation more closely.

-WORKSHOPS:

We organise various workshops and lectures every year on the different aspects of puppet making and stop motion. Please look our Facebook site for the dates and the subject of the workshops, or send us an email at info[@]praguepuppetmuseum.com

-FINNISH FILM CAFÈ “KINOKAVÀRNA“:

In the museum, we show twice a month new Finnish short films in a relaxed, living-room like atmosphere. Apart our regular chamber screenings, our partner cinema “Ewald“ in the nearby Narodni street hosts four times a year special screenings of Finnish short films.

-ANIMATHEKA:

On Mondays, Tuesdays and every evening after 18.00 it is possible to make a private reservation of our screening rooms and watch our archive animations and the films of our partner producers and supporters.

-SPECIAL EVENTS:

Every year, we are cooperating with local Czech festivals, promoting not only the puppet animation, but also Finnish films, design and contemporary art & music. This year, our main happening is the screening of the documentary film “Tom of Finland“, directed by Ilppo Pohjola, together with Prague Pride festival, Kino Ewald and club Vzorkovna. A thematic exhibition of modern Finnish textile art from the Finlayson company, with the prints of Tom of Finland´s most beloved characters, will accompany the film.
