The Czech Film Fund has started its transformation into the Czech Audiovisual Fund, which will cover four main areas. The current framework for film and film infrastructure will be extended to include support for small-screen production (fiction, animated series and documentaries) and video games. The new fund will mark an important change in the national creative industry.

Apart from the Czech Audiovisual Fund, another new institution is created with the aim of supporting national professionals working in the episodic format: the Institute of Television. The private university will become the first educational institution dedicated solely to television courses in the Czech Republic.

The Television Institute will offer a bachelor’s degree with the possibility of pursuing a master’s degree in Norway. The university plans to run three courses: a technology course prepared with the Sony company (which will provide the technical equipment), a showrunning course and a course geared towards classic television production and marketing. In addition to the academic functions, the Television Institute will also serve as an inspirational platform.

The sector professionals center will provide a creative space for reflection on television production while broadcasting programming all year round. Kamila Zlatušková, director of the festival Serial killer (read the news), also producer and former vice-dean for international relations at FAMU, is the founder of the institute and will also be its head. Zlatušková said Media (read the article in Czech here) that they plan to bring in verified know-how from Scandinavia, UK, US and other countries with thriving TV production, as well as international speakers and lecturers.

According to Zlatušková, the concept of the institute is to capture talents from the Czech Republic and Slovakia through the baccalaureate, while working professionals could expand their training in the field. Industry experts from national TV channels as well as international stations such as ORF and HBO are confirmed to participate as speakers. The university will collaborate with the Czech public broadcaster Czech television and national commercial television channels.

The Television Institute will officially open its doors in September 2022 in Brno.
