The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (Czech: Mezinárodní filmový festival Karlovy Vary) is film festival held annually in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), Czech Republic. There are projected every year more than 180 feature films and dozens of short films from around the world.  It is considered the most important film festival in Central and Eastern Europe.

It’s one of the oldest film festivals (first held in 1946) in category A (ie non-specialized festival with feature film competition), along with the festivals in places like Cannes, Berlin, Venice and Tokyo. The Karlovy Vary Festival gained worldwide recognition over the past years and has become one of Europe’s major film events, where regularly appear many famous filmmakers from around the word. 

Crystal Globe (Czech: Křišťálový glóbus) is the main award for best film at the International Film Festival. Last winner (2012) was János Szász from Hungary with his movie The Notebook (A nagy füzet).
