FAMU locations and production facilities

On its ground floor the building also houses the famous Café Slavia, and includes a student´s club in the cellar space.
2) FAMU Studio
11000 Prague 1
Film and television production and postproduction studio, which includes two large indoor studios, several editing rooms, sound mixing halls, decoration and costume storage etc. FAMU Studio on Klimentská Street has traditionally provided students with the facilities they require for instruction and creative work. The historical building, which originally housed the entire faculty, has witnessed the development of artists, film technique and Czech filmmaking in general. With time, film was joined by television, and both these phenomena have found a home within the studio, coexisting successfully within the school’s curriculum.
The studio has recently gone through a general refurbishment. There will be an opening ceremony in spring 2018. Students can look forward to a modern and well-equipped facility.
