COMPANY PROFILE

D.N.A. has been operating since 2001. Receiving valuable experience in television and commercial production, the company started producing independent arthouse short films (VOICES, DARKROOM), which not only received attention and critical acclaim, but also were successful at the international festival circuit. Since 2007, the company produces artistically challenging feature films and has since established strong relationships with young filmmaking talents, who are willing to cross the borders of genre and explore new narrative structures. With director Peter Bebjak, the company produced APRICOT ISLAND (2011), a melodrama, EVIL (2012), the first Slovak horror and THE CLEANER (2015), a psychological drama, all of which were presented at international film festivals world-wide and received awards.

The TV series THE JUSTICE won in the 2018 Czech Lion Awards for Best Television Film or Miniseries.
