The Czech Film Commission welcomed a new member to the team this November – Pavlína Žipková, a veteran of both film and advertising production. She will draw on her 18 years of experience in those areas when addressing queries from foreign producers and filmmakers. Pavlína will also be representing the Czech Republic at international film festivals and markets in which the Czech Film Commission regularly participates.

“I’ve followed the Czech Film Commission’s activities for many years and have also been in regular contact with the team. I’ve always appreciated what they’ve done for the film sector. They took on a great deal of work, thanks to which the Czech Republic’s film incentives programme has always worked exceptionally well. For me, this job is a challenge – one I’m really looking forward to,” says Pavlína Žipková. Pavlína already has a lot of interesting projects to her credit: as a line producer of the feature length documentary Who Will Write Our History directed by Roberta Grossman and executive produced by Nancy Spielberg, which premieres in autumn 2017; working on the documentary Joan of Arc by Emmy Award winning storyteller Pamela Mason Wagner; and leading the shooting of director Eli Roth’s hit horror film Hostel, produced by Quentin Tarantino. She has also worked on the production of more than 150 commercials, including Vizir – Snow Blind, for which director Chris Bartle won a Silver Lion at Cannes. But Pavlína says that for her the sweetest success of all was Roberta Grossman Blessed is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh, which she line produced in 2006 and which was short-listed for an Oscar in 2008.
