Established in 1947 and built by most influential Czech filmmakers of that time, FAMU is one of the oldest film schools in Europe. At the dawn of the 1960s, FAMU was the birthplace of the young artists movement which later became known as Czech New Wave, er, constituted Czech film’s hitherto most significant contribution to world cinematography and brought to Czechoslovakia- among other - two Oscars for best foreign films. Today, FAMU ranks among TOP 15 International Film Schools list as published annually by The Hollywood Reporter and its students, pedagogues, and graduates enjoy many successes at home and abroad.
