Four Projects Supported by the Prague Film FundHighlights
From the first call for applications to receive grants from the Prague Film Fund, four projects have succeeded, winning a total of CZK 5.3 million. The call was for projects in which Prague is shown as Prague (i.e. not as a stand-in), intended for international distribution in cinemas or TV stations, and whose filming began in the period from 1 January 2016 to 30 June 2017.
Out of a total of 18 applications, the following four projects were selected:
- Jab Harry Met Sejal (working title The Ring), Indian romantic road-movie by director Imtiaz Ali, grant of CZK 2 million,
- The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, the new picture by internationally awarded Canadian director Xavier Dolan, grant of CZK 1 million,
- Tout le monde debout, a French comedy by the popular actor, author and director Franck Dubosc, grant of CZK 2 million,
- Ein Sommer in Prag, a German television film by director Karoly Meeder, shot for ZDF and Austria’s ORF, grant of CZK 300,000 with a matching grant of CZK 300,000 from ORF.
