It is the 23rd time the City of Liberec has played host to the international sports film festival this year and it will be held at an iconic cinema Varšava again. In 2019, Czech Television co-production film The Golden Betrayal was awarded a prestigious prize Guirlande d’Honneur by the jury of Milan Final. The award is known as Oscar for sports films. The guarantor of this festival series is the Federation Internationale Cinema Television Sportifs (FICTS) joining 70 countries under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee. Sportfilm also cooperates with the running series Run Czech.
