HISTORY OF THE FESTIVAL

If we want to investigate the festival’s history, we need to travel back into the past.

Into the year 1996, to be exact. That’s when Private student film academy of Pisek was born. The creators behind it were Mr and Mrs Terč.

And the International student film festival in Pisek was created a year later from their initiative.

Through the years, the festival has gained popularity and now represents an important component in worldwide student cinematography. And because the students of the Pisek academy participate in it’s yearly preparation from the very beginning, it fills them with many valuable practical experiences.
