- Story Text:The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival welcomed actor Johnny Depp to the red carpet on Friday (August 27).
Depp introduced here the screening of Julien Templeâ€™s ''Crock Of Gold: A Few Rounds With Shane MacGowan'', which he co-produced.
Women's charities including British-based Women's Aid have criticised the festival organisers for inviting Depp, saying his appearance at this and other events served only to minimise the seriousness of domestic violence and the suffering of its victims.
The 58-year-old actor lost a libel battle in November 2020 with a British tabloid that labelled him a "wife beater", after a London High Court judge ruled that he had repeatedly assaulted actor Amber Heard during their relationship and put her in fear for her life. Depp has been refused permission to appeal.
Launched in then-Czechoslovakia in 1946, the festival is one of the oldest in the world but was forced online in 2020 after the coronavirus pandemic hit. This year's start was also delayed from its usual dates at the turn of June and July until a third wave of COVID-19 began to ease.
