The transformation of memory institutions in Europe and in the CR with focus on their "media acts"
Fridrich, Tomáš ; Bednařík, Petr (advisor) ; Sekera, Martin (referee)
The aim of the thesis "Memory institutions on the threshold of the 21st century: media activities of the National Film Archive and the Deutsches Filminstitut" is to explain the context in which the archives are acting, and in particular explore specific media operations of two leading European film archives. The focus of the first part of the text is to describe the changing conditions mainly related to digitalization. The traditionally rigid institutions must adapt to this new conditions if they want to onform to the standards of cultural institutions of the 21st century. The main part of the text then analyzes the media actions of the National Film Archive and reference institution Deutsches Filminstitut. The thesis analyzes the specific media actions from onlinepresentation of the institution up to the work with journalists and, if necessary, proposes the optimization of existing processes. The reason of focusing just on media activities is the increasing need to develop new audiences, recruited from persons who were up to this moment not interested in the activities of the archives, and last but not least, the fact that a good media activity can be a compelling argument when approaching sponsors from the private sector.

The submitted paper deals with the work of the significant film historian Mr. Karel Caslavsky and focuses on his auctorial series Hledání ztraceného času (Searching the Lost Time).

The main intention is the detailed analysis of the series Hledání ztraceného času which will be supported by the solitaire episodes, mini-series and, especially, two unique cycles Co viděly americké kamery v Čechách (What the US Cameras saw in Bohemia) and Vltava v obrazech (The Vltava River in Pictures). I will focus on the preparation process, the work with the archive materials, the way of realization or the importance of his work for the Czech public as such. There are interviews with the close colleagues of Mr Caslavsky as part of the study.

Bright Tomorrows?
Tydlitátová, Anna ; Forejt, Jiří (advisor) ; Havas, David (referee)
The thesis deals with the transformation of Ponrepo Cinema, a former viewing room in Prague, which had been recently converted into a modern public-service cinematheque of the Czech National Film Archive (NFA). This transformation process runs on the background of the structural, legislative, financial and HR changes, implemented in the NFA in the last years. The work thus refers to the metamorphosis of the whole institution. I am focusing on the period after 2012, when PhDr. Michal Bregant was appointed the current CEO. I am describing namely the changes done in the sector of services and HR, which in turn influenced the very content and form of the activities offered by the cinema. I further emphasize my interest in the public relations and the communication strategies of Ponrepo Cinema toward its audiences, and finally indicate the possible next course of this cultural institution.
