The Cleveland SVU Chapter hosted a Reception for Jan Hřebejk at the 34th Annual Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) on March 20, 2010. Hřebejk was accompanied by longtime writing partner Petr Jarchovský. Hřebejk, the Recipient of the CIFF 2010 Director’s Spotlight Award, was the director of five of the films shown during the Festival. SVU was the Community Partner for the showing of the film “Divided We Fall” for which Hřebejk was nominated for his first Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. More information on Hřebejk and his films can be found at http://www.clevelandfilm.org/.
The Cleveland Chapter of SVU was established in 1969 by Ing. Bastl, and it rapidly became very active chapter. The major accomplishments were the hosting of the National SVU Congress in 1978, and this Chapter’s involvement in organizing a formal annual event, which occures to this day and is known as the Czech and Slovak Cotillion Ball.
In 2003, after a brief repose in the Chapter’s activities, a new team re-energized the Chapter.
