World Film Heritage will get a new home

The contract for construction of a new depository of the National Film Archive (NFA) was signed on March 5th by its representatives and the contracting company HOCHTIEF CZ. Repository for more than CZK 100 million will grow in central Bohemian village Hradištko. The construction will begin in mid-March.

One of the oldest and the most respected institutions of its type will move to a new, four-storey building that will serve primarily as a depository for film archival material. Part of the building will serve also as an office facility. Constructors from the company HOCHTIEF CZ will construct there large storage spaces that will be constantly tempered to a temperature of - 5 °C. The storerooms will be equipped by movable shelving system that will allow efficient use of the formed space. The new archive will be located on a plot of the existing depository from the 1990s and exterior of the new building will be fitted with architectural elements mainly in mild colour combinations.
