The International Television Festival Golden Prague was held October 13-17, 2012, a unique experience and something worth putting on your calendar every fall. It is a unique international festival presenting the world’s best music and dance programs and films in all musical genres.
The prestigious international competition is accompanied by a rich supplementary program including a video library, workshops, concerts, presentations of TV stations, screenings and meetings with renowned directors, producers and choreographers and their works.
Since its inception in 1964, the International Television Festival, which is organized by Czech Television, has become the world’s most important television festival dedicated to music and dance on television.
It ranks among the oldest and most renowned events of its kind: among television festivals, only Prix Italia (founded in 1949), Monte Carlo and Montreux festivals (both founded in 1961) can boast a longer tradition.
