STUDIO BRATŘI V TRIKU was founded in 1945. It is the oldest and the largest Czech studio which produces cartoon films. Up to date (2005) more than 1600 films of various styles and genres, from 2-minute black-outs to demanding full-length works have been created here. The brain behind this Studio was Jiří Trnka, a renaissance personality, but other leaders of Czech animation have cooperated with the studio too, such as Břetislav Pojar, Jiří Brdečka, Zdeněk Miler and others. Those who rank among the current creators are, for example Michaela Pavlátová, Pavel Koutský or Gene Deitch . The artistic credo of the studio is to create animated films of various genres and artistic styles - there is not an artist with whose original expression The Studio BRATŘI V TRIKU could not cope with. A respected feature of the so-called Czech school of cartoon film is also humanism and a sense of intelligent humor, which is sometimes lyrical, other times comes near satire.

Films under the name of BRATŘI V TRIKU have earned hundreds of awards at international festivals and have won Grand Prix and the Main awards at such prestigious festivals as Berlin, Venice, Chicago, Annecy, Hiroshima,Tamper, Espinho, Cannes, Stuttgart, Oberhausen, Locarno, Ottawa, San Sebastian, Gijon, Montreal, and many others. Successes of the Studio include several nominations and one awarded Oscar.
