“I strongly believe that for European film all kind of co-production and international markets are important and that is the reason why I would love to attend the festival and meet all the professionals and also to learn something. I love discussing new ideas with people and build all the possible relations that can bring us to a collaboration in future.”

Michaela Cajkova is currently finishing her studies in film producing at FAMU in Prague. She obtained an MA in Political Economy and International Relations at Masaryk University and a BA in Film history and theory. She produced various short movies and one feature film called UNCLE VICTOR (dir. Viktoria Rampal Dzurenko). After staying in Bezalel Academy in Israel she decided to focus on documentary films. She participated in various workshops for producers and filmmakers. In 2014, she joined Taskovski Films, a London based world sales and production company of independent documentary films, in their Berlin office and now she works from Prague as sales & festival executive. She is the sales agent of the beautiful and rather “loco” documentary portrait EL CHARRO DE TOLUQUILLA about a HIV-positive Mariachi, which screens at this year’s ZFF.
