Film Production in Prague

Faculty Mentors from FAMU

Faculty in this program act more as mentors and less as traditional classroom instructors. They share their knowledge and expertise, yes, but they let you do the driving. You’ll be given the same autonomy as local students, which means plenty of freedom to discover—and refine—your creative process. This is hands-on learning at its best.

Faculty come from the host institution—FAMU, the Film and Television School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. All faculty hold an MFA or PhD. Many have taught at FAMU for over a decade, and some have taught at universities in the United States.

Full-Time, Bilingual, On-Site Staff

Attending a celebrated foreign institution like FAMU can be challenging, but CET staff are on your side, helping you adjust to Czech university life. On-site staff oversee the curriculum, manage the faculty, and monitor courses. They handle housing, excursions, and day-to-day logistics. Sure, it can be a headache when class gets canceled to accommodate a visiting artist or exhibit opening, but CET staff know what it’s like and can help you jump the hurdles. And if there’s ever an emergency, rest assured that they have been trained in emergency prevention and management, too. Do you have particular learning needs? Got an idea for an activity? Need to see a doctor? Talk to the on-site staff. They are there to help.
