The Czech Film Center (CFC) was established in 2002 with the goal of systematically profiling contemporary Czech cinematography and the Czech film industry, primarily abroad. Structurally, the CFC is divided into Film Promotion, which is involved in the promotion of Czech films abroad, and the Film Commission, which provides services to incoming foreign film productions and promotes the Czech Republic as a shooting location.
The CFC's main activities include
Information–providing up-to-date information on the state of Czech cinematography and film industry
Promotion–the coordination of promotional activities at important international festivals and markets and in the framework of festivals in the Czech Republic
Publication–annual catalogues, DVDs, newsletters and other publications
Networking–making and maintaining contacts in the area of the international film industry and the mediation of the necessary contacts to both Czech and foreign film professionals
The Czech Film Center has been member of EFP since 2002.
