Film and TV School (FAMU) is an integral part of The Academy of Performing Arts, which was founded after World War II, in 1947. It is the fifth oldest film school in the world. Its graduates include numerous influential filmmakers and scriptwriters, many known within international contexts such as Oscar winners or laureates of international film festivals.
In the early 1960s, it served as an incubator for young artists who subsequently became famous as the Czechoslovak New Wave. It was the greatest contribution to the world’s cinematography until then, and it earned Czechoslovakia – inter alia – two Oscars for Best Foreign Films.
Today, FAMU is featured on the list of TOP 15 international film schools as published annually by The Hollywood Reporter, and the students, teachers, and graduates are successful both domestically and internationally.
