About us

Rudolf Biermann was born on the 20th of April 1958 in Trenčín, Slovakia. Following his graduation with a PhD in Law at the Komenského Faculty of Law in Bratislava, he wandered off from the world of law to fulfil his creative dreams. He began to work as a production assistant at the Koliba film studios in Bratislava. From a young age, and thanks to his foreign language skills, he was able to get involved with a number of not only domestic but also foreign film productions.

He has been working as an independent film producer since 1990, which lead him to establish his own film production company In Film Praha s.r.o. in 1993. Between 1995 up until 1999 he acted as the General Manager of the International Film Festival Karlovy Vary and brought it to its international fame.
