The Czech Film Archive (NFA), one of the most important film archives in the world, was well represented by its CEO at both Il Cinema Ritrovato and the 2016 FIAF Congress that also took place in Bologna.

Furthermore, during the program of Il Cinema Ritrovato, two recent restorations projects of the Czech Film Archive were screened – one being White Paradise (1934) and Such is Life (1930).
