Brno, Oct 1 (BD) – Dark clouds gathered overhead and a red light shone from behind the cinema entrance, beckoning visitors to enter and be captivated. What better time to kick back in the cinema and enjoy a film with the whole row to yourself than on a cold and rainy weekend? The annual Serial Killer Festival has thrilled and charmed Brno audiences for three consecutive years, and this year was no different.

The event was well prepared for guests by providing disinfection, registration badges and souvenirs, including Serial Killer facemasks. Photo credit: Tomáš Bezděk courtesy of Serial Killer.

The wide selection of the best TV and web series from the local and international scene were meticulously chosen for the audience. The festival focuses on bringing quality European serial drama, mystery and murder productions to the screen – in theatre and online via DAFilms.
