Director Josef Lustig, son of world-renowned writer Arnošt Lustig and educator at the NOVA Community College arrived with his colleagues and their group of 23 students for a month long internship at our school.

 During this time, the students will attend lectures and workshops, experiment with film stock, and make four films to take home whose scripts were written in the US before beginning consultation with our production students and their own assisting teams. Filming will take place not only in Pisek's quaint streets and alleys, but also in the town's picturesque surroundings. Residents of Písek will have a unique opportunity to meet with the future American filmmaking generation.

From the reactions so far, students and teachers alike are enthusiastic (and who wouldn't be, especially with Czech beer on offer after a hard day at work!)
