Prague Microfestival (PMF) is an annual international festival of the arts, combining contemporary writing with art, film, and performance, which every year welcomes renowned and emerging authors from across the world, staging them alongside film projections, music, performance and visual art, in a rich mixture of art forms and literature genres.

This year, due to the aggravated situation in Europe and the world, Prague Microfestival is facing extraordinary and unpredictable challenges resulting from the coronavirus pandemic and, for the safety of its authors, artists, book publishers, editor and its visitors, is moving its events to virtual worlds.

Artists, musicians, and performers from all over the world will show their work online at festival website (https://www.praguemicrofestival.com), which will result to making this year’s festival even more accessible for the public.
