Summer Film School program team

Authors of the new dramaturgical conception are especially art director of the Association of Czech Film Clubs (ACFC) Pavel Bednařík, together with a close dramaturgical team formed by the head programmers David Čeněk and Jan Jílek. Program of the Summer Film School (SFS), however, is created together with a number of dramaturges and advisers who cooperate to create particular cycles and retrospectives.

“New image of the program and its schedule is a result of long-time audience experience together with two-year dramaturgical practice. I am delighted that we succeed in joining demandingness of the audience together with attractiveness and partnership of prestigious domestic and foreign institutions. The greatest motif of ours is firstly consistency as a criteria, which supports feeling film as an irreplaceable phenomenon and as full-value artistic form of the twenty-first century”, says Pavel Bednařík, art director of the SFS.

David Čeněk, head programmer, comments on the new dramaturgical conception as follows: “For the first time in history of SFS well arranged schedule of the program has been created. Film is no longer dealt with as a social phenomenon (which can mean anything). At the same time, we can see long-term effort to create a platform in Uherské Hradiště, which could be a good starting point for recovery of domestic film and, last but not least, it could offer the opportunity to acquainted with film as one kind of art especially to young audience.”

Jan Jílek, the second head programmer of SFS, adds: “Firmly applied basic blocks of the festival program give us the chance to work conceptually in relation to following years of SFS and it gets us close to similarly focused European film exhibitions that have clearly set structure of their program too (for instance CPH:Pix in Copenhagen, Era New Horizons in Wroclaw and the International Film Festival in Ljubljana). The final appearance of the program is a result of dramaturgical work initiated in 2008 and brings to the audience better arranged program that used to be rather over-full and hard to handle. “
