Palacký University


The Department of Theatre, Film and Media Studies in co-operation with the association Pastiche Filmz presents variety of national and international film production in the programme of the Art Centre. Most of the film projections and festivals are open not only to the academics – students and teachers - but also to general public.

Film festivals focused on specific topics of international independent producers are being held in the Art Centre for complex study of the wide filmmaking spectrum. There is a tradition of annual “Echoes” – presentation of a selection of previously screened films during Czech and Slovak film festivals (British Film Seminar, Archive Film Seminar, Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival, European Film Days).

The Art Centre is a venue of annual Academia Film Olomouc Festival, organized by Palacký University since 1966. The festival ranks among top European festivals on science documentaries. Its major goal is to present topical information from all spheres of knowledge, and thus promote science i n general public, young audiences, and film and television professionals. The festival is devoted to all fields of knowledge and brings together humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. Its unique focus combines competition screenings of new Czech and world science documentaries, with lectures and presentations of scientists. Visitors appreciate unique atmosphere, where filmmakers meet with scholars and enthusiastic audiences.

A new programme of film presentation with a wide choice of historical and current Czech and international films came into existence in the Palacký University Art Centre. The films are presented according to the themes and discussed in perspective of their historical, national and cultural context. The aim is to stimulate discussion and interest in various issues.
