The Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (Template:Lang-cs) or FAMU is one of the oldest film schools in the world. Located in Prague, Czech Republic, FAMU was founded in 1946 as one of three branches of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. The teaching language at most of programs at FAMU is Czech, but FAMU offers also programs in English: summer workshops, one-year Academy Program, Special Productions - or MFA program Cinema in Digital Media. According to The Hollywood Reporter weekly, FAMU is the best film school in Europe and No. 11 in the world.

In the 1960s and 1970s, several young directors from Yugoslavia were FAMU students (Rajko Grli?, Sr?an Karanovi?, Emir Kusturica, Goran Markovi?, Goran Paskaljevi? and Lordan Zafranovi?). All of these directors would become very successful in the following decades, prompting the coinage of the term Praška škola ("Prague school"), or Praški talas ("Prague wave"), which is sometimes considered a prominent sub genre of the Yugoslav cinema.
