ATHANOR – Film production company was founded with an idea of producing independent and non-commercial works. Since 1992 ATHANOR has produced or co-produced especially Jan Švankmajer`s films and exhibitions, but the company is also open to other filmmakers. The company`s studios are located in Knovíz (a village 25 km northwest of Prague). The studios have their own technical equipment, ensuring that they are self-sufficient except for laboratories and film sound system. This is one of factors which guarantees its independence.
