09 | 05

This year, Anifilm decided to present its Lifetime Achievement Award to Professor Edgar Dutka, one of Anifilm’s regular visitors. He has played a vital role throughout the history of Czech animation and we can hardly imagine it without him. For a long time, he worked as a dramaturge in the Krátký film studios, he has written dozens of scripts for legendary films (e.g. The End of the CubeThe Club of the Laid Off), directed films himself and taught at the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague where he inspired many animators and historians focusing on animated film. Last but not least, Edgar Dutka is also an acclaimed writer and an important collaborator of Jiři Barta – together they are currently trying to bring the Golem to life. It is an honour to present our award to Edgar Dutka! You can look forward to a block of his selected works and a presentation about the film Golem which is currently in development.
