Czech Television has announced the results of the 6th FILM ACCREDITER ČT, which is to contribute to the support of the best student short films, which have previously been selected by individual schools - FAMU, FAMO and TBU. FAMO in Písek was placed on the 2nd place with the project "HOVOR" (directed by Ondřej Burda). Congratulations!

We are happy to announce that FAMO will once again partner with FEST festival, one of Europe's leading showcases of new talents and groundbreaking film education forum. And this year for the first time our students and staff will be offered active internship opportunities!

As of 2019 FAMO Students will have the opportunity to participate as study-abroad interns in the international film festival’s organization, documentation and marketing, as well as in the events themselves. Don't be shy, have a look what FEST has to offer here. 

“Since its establishment in 2004, FEST has quickly become one of the leading showcases of groundbreaking films by emerging filmmakers, as well as a platform for international film professionals, up-and-coming and established alike, to come together to present their work, develop their skills and create synergies.
