The mission of the Czech Film Foundation is the digital restoration of important films in Czech cinema, and to collect the funds for their restoration, thereby making them available to next generations of film fans.
The idea behind the Restoring the World of Fantasy project is to support the digital restoration of three films from the golden fund of Czech cinematography produced by Karel Zeman. The Czech Film Foundation is working closely with the Karel Zeman Museum and Czech Television on this project. Thanks to the active involvement of all three parties working on the project, it has developed beyond its original objective and given rise to a number of overlapping activities in areas such as education or the promotion of Czech filmmaking abroad.

This is the latest project of the Czech Film Foundation. The ‘Cutting It Short with Jiří Menzel’ project follows the successful cooperation between the Czech Film Foundation and director Jiří Menzel on the digital restoration of the film Ostře sledované vlaky (Closely Watched Trains) in 2014. The aim of the project is to digitally restore the film Postřižiny (Cutting It Short) to the highest quality and to present the restored version to the general public with Jiří Menzel and cinematographer Jaromír Šofr.
