The film festival in Cannes has revealed its La Cinef school film selection and two films from students at Prague’s FAMU film school have made the cut. The 2019 student Oscar winner Daria Kashcheeva will be competing with her master’s thesis movie Electra. Meanwhile, fresh FAMU bachelor Petr Pylypchuk got into the nominations with his film Osmý den (Eighth Day), which explores the story of a sect runaway.

For Daria Kashcheeva this is far from the first major nomination. Her 2019 production, Daughter, which revolved around a woman remembering her relationship with her father, made a big impression on the international animated film scene winning several awards.
