The Second Annual Faculty Film Festival was attended by 340 spectators who saw a total of 12 films; the Audience Award in the FAMU films section went to Atestation of the Hecht Brothers.

The highlight of the programme was the British biopic One Life by James Hawes, depicting the fate of Nicolas Winton and the Jewish children evacuated from Nazi-occupied Europe. It was accompanied by a lecture by historian Adam Drda in cooperation with the Memory of the Nation. The film Atestation directed by Jan Hecht and Tomáš Hecht, a graduate of the Second School of Medicine and author of the screenplay, opened the FAMU competition section and combined film art with the medical environment. It eventually won the festival's Audience Award. In the third hall, the audience could see the "Oscar cinema" Barbie and Oppenheimer.
