Prague in Kato: FAMU

short feature animations set, 72'
29.09 TH 20.00 @The Academy of Fine Arts: Rhino Cinema

70 years ago, with the beginning of the Winter semester of 1946 the first classes at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague took place. A couple of years later the Film Department opened. And to this day, it remains a factory of artists, directors and animators. FAMU graduates include such names as Emir Kusturica, Věra Chytilová, Agnieszka Holland, Petr Zelenka and Jan Švankmajer (who studied at the Theatre Department). Today, it is widely known that the division into separate institutes and departments does not properly highlight the added artistic output of the Czech school’s graduates. This year’s set of the best diploma animations will be just a small dose of the said output, hosted inside the new building of The Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice.
