Prague - Czech short film Little Secret, written and directed by Martin Krejci, has won in one of the main categories at the prestigious LA Shorts Fest 2013 festival in Los Angeles and thus is shortlisted for Oscar nominations, Czech TV spokeswoman Alzbeta Plivova told CTK today.
The 21-minute live action film Little Secret (Strach), which had a world premiere at the International Film festival in Karlovy Vary, west Bohemia, this year, was inspired by a true story from the spring of 2012
A 15-year-old boy then reported that he had been brutally beaten up by Romanies in Breclav, south Moravia. His accusation stirred up anti-Romany protests in the locality. However, the investigation later revealed that he had caused the serious injuries himself by falling down from a railing. He fabricated the Romany attack to escape punishment.
The LA Shorts Fest festival was held in Los Angeles on September 5-12. It presented a total of 280 short films from 17 countries.
The film, produced by Krejci along with the Stink company and public Czech Television (CT), has now a chance of winning Oscar for the best live action short film.
Krejci is a respected director who also shoots high-quality advertising spots. He is the author of some jingles for the Karlovy Vary festival, including the latest one featuring Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren.
