The 10th Annual Tiburon International Film Festival (TIFF), is set for April 7-15, 2011 in Tiburon, California. TIFF will be showcasing over 140 films from 55 countries.

The Opening Film is “Novel for Men” directed by Tomas Barina from Czech Republic. “Novel for Men” will be making its International Premiere.

Novel for Men tells the story of three siblings – Cyril, Bruno and Aneta. The strong bond that formed among them after their parents’ tragic death, when the much older Cyril took on the responsibility of raising his little brother and sister, is put to a strange test.

The siblings leave on their yearly trip to the mountains in the shadow of Bruno’s inevitable and impending death. The trip is meant to be some sort of journey of last wishes – including secret erotic fantasies – but instead becomes a tragicomic showdown of fundamental values and attitudes.

The cast includes: Miroslav Donutil, Miroslav Vladyka, Vanda Hybnerova, and Tana Pauhofova.
