Petr Bilík

Mgr. Petr Bilík, Ph.D., (born 1974) studied History and Theory of Literature, Theatre and Film, and briefly also History of Art at the Philosophical Faculty of Palacky University in Olomouc. He received his Ph.D. degree from the PU Department of Theory and History of Dramatic Arts (now the Department of Theatre, Film and Media Studies), where he became an assistant professor specializing in Czech Cinema and Culture Management.

After graduation, he first worked in MF Dnes and then as an editor for Host, a literary monthly. He then went to join Česká televize Brno, initially as an editor and literary manager of a literary-drama editorial team, and later also as a screenwriter. Petr has co-organized or founded several film activities (Head of Staff of the Summer Film School (LFS); founder and organizer of the Festival of Animated Film; Head of Academia Film Olomouc) and was chief editor of DocRevue and Filmové Listy. Additionally, he co-founded and is Vice-President of the Czech Society for Film Studies (CEFS). He sits on the editorial board of journals Host and Iluminace. In 2012 he published his book Ladislav Helge – Cesta za občanským filmem.

In recent years, Petr has undergone a number of study programmes and internships (University of St. Andrews, University of Bristol, BBC).

He is married with two children, and his hobbies and interests include mainly art, sports, culinary art, and travelling.

He sat on and headed the Academic Senate of the Philosophical Faculty of UP, later becoming UP FF Vice-Dean for External Relations and Project Management. He is the author and investigator of several European grant projects focused mainly on the organization of internships in the film industry and the media, care for employees, and system solutions in tertiary education. As part of his activities he carried out a number of national and international PR, marketing, and media campaigns.

For him the position of Vice-Rector for External Relations is a call to unite and highlight Palacký University as an elite institution set in the extraordinary environment of the city of Olomouc.
