Director Robert Eggers and cinematographer Jarin Blaschke – in Prague! Do not miss the unique opportunity to meet the filmmakers whose work includes The Witch (2015), The Lighthouse (2019), and The Northman (2022) – some of the most original and critically acclaimed contemporary genre films. The moderated discussion will be hosted by Viktor Palák, and questions from the audience will be encouraged. The program also includes the screening of Eggers’ sophomore feature The Lighthouse.
What does it take to create a successful coproduction partnership? What are the specifics of film production in Central & Eastern Europe and Scandinavia? Join us at the talk organised by Cinergy and Famufest, where you’ll have a chance to meet two successful producers – Klaudia Smieja-Rostworowska from Poland, whose credits include Lamb (2021), Charlatan (2020) or High Life (2018) and Dyveke Bjorkly Graver from Norway, the executive producer of the Oscar-nominated The Worst Person in The World (2021). The talk will be hosted by a Czech producer & the head of the Department of Producing at FAMU Karla Stojáková.

During the talk, we will touch upon Volker’s journey from solo composer to film scoring, his creative process, and his cooperation with various directors.
