    JIHLAVA: London based sales company Taskovski Films has picked up Jihlava IDFF competition documentary Normal Autistic Film directed by Miroslav Janek.

    Michaela Cajkova of Taskovski Films told FNE, “It’s an amazing film and it's super important for a young audience because society has so much prejudice against disabilities. It’s important to show this film worldwide.” Cajkova said the company would first offer the film to ARTE TV and Poland’s TVP Kultura. She added, “We will focus on special screening options, like World Autism Day.”

    The film is produced by Jan Macola of Mimesis Film, who is at Jihlava as one of the Emerging Producers 2017.

    Cajkova said that Taskovski Films is looking to pick up a second film at the festival in Jihlava, which runs through 30 October 2016. The company’s founder and CEO Irena Taskovski is a lead tutor at the Emerging Producers workshop in Jihlava.
