Short films


Here at the Czech Film Center, we have been systematically and intensively involved in the promotion of Czech short films for several years now, particularly at important foreign and domestic film festivals and markets. ElectraLove, DadWho's Who in Mycology, these are but a few Czech shorts we have supported on their way to international recognition. As part of long-time cooperation with the Czech Film and Television Academy, we select broader nominees for the Magnesia Award for best student film, and as members of the European Film Promotion, we organize the Future Frames program at KVIFF. We curate the annual Czech Short Films collection, a selection of newly produced Czech shorts. We also publish the CZECH FILM magazine, containing many interesting articles about Czech short films.
