Aacademy Of Performing Arts In Prague (Film And TV School )




Film and TV School (FAMU) is an integral part of The Academy of Performing Arts, which has been found after the World War 2 in 1946. It is one of the oldest film schools in Europe, which kept its tradition even during the difficult time of communist regime. There are many influential filmmakers and scriptwriters among graduates from the school, many of them are known also within international context, e.g.: Stanislav Barabas, Oscar winner Milos Forman, Oscar winner Agnieszka Holland, Věra Chytilova, Juraj Jakubisko, Vojtech Jasny, Woody Vasulka, Lordan Zafranovic, Jan Sverak, Ivan Passer, Goran Paskaljevic, Magnum member Josef Koudelka, Jan Nemec, present Prague and National Rabbi Karol Sidon, Stefan Uher and many others. Also, most of people working in the local film and TV industry either in artistic or production positions, as well as still-photographers in various media are graduates from our school.

The star-studded period form FAMU were the 1960s, but the school managed to retain a comparatively free atmosphere through also the politically repressive 1970s and 1980s. Many professors and graduates emigrated on the other hand, and while abroad, contributed significantly to the education of American cinema school students (especially Frank Daniel and Vojtech Jasny). Foreign contacts were maintained in those days through the International Centre of Cinema and Television Schools CILECT (Centre Interrnational de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinema et de Television) and through international graduate-film reviews at Karlovy Vary - as part of the International Karlovy Vary Film Festival. In November and December 1989 the students and some of the professors of FAMU made a significant contribution to the overthrow of the repressive Communist regime.
