The rector of FAMO in Pisek, prof. Gabriel Švejda, handed the Rector´s Award to students Polina Kazakova and Lenka Ivančíková in the presence of television cameras. Rector awarded their achievements at film festivals and spreading the good name of the school. 

 


Friday 10.3. was a school Open Doors Day. Lot of people came, together with their parents and others who just wanted to look at the environment in which we teach filmmaking, see a professional film camera and talk with well-known pedagogues.

 

 

 

We had the pleasure to welcome a special guest at FAMO last Friday. JOSHUA FAUDEM, a documentary filmmaker from Jerusalem, was invited by the Embassy of Izrael to the Czech Republic and fortunately his journey led also to our school!

 

Joshua is a graduate of Prague's FAMU and among other things, the author of the award-winning documentary Blues by the Beach and the follow-up comics Mike's Place. There is an interesting story behind its creation, since he witnessed a terrorist attack that happened during the making of the film.

Hereby we would like to thank Joshua, Mrs. Jurková from the Embassy of Izrael and all the participating students for realization of a beneficial lecture and discussion.
