About the company
Artichoke is a Slovak film production company founded in 2009 by scriptwriter, director and producer Juraj Krasnohorsky and production manager Henrieta Cvangová, recently joined by a Polish producer, Danuta Gęgotek. Artichoke’s first feature film Tigers in the City was released in Slovak cinemas in June 2012 and participated in a number of international film festivals.
Currently we are in different stages of production for two feature projects and one animated short film. In June 2013 Artichoke co-organized the international workshop for European producers Maia Workshops, supported by the MEDIA programme.
Juraj Krasnohorsky and Danuta Gęgotek are MAIA Workshops alumni.
We are three associate producers at Artichoke, working on common projects but as well on separate projects of our own, sharing knowledge and expertise in different aspects of production. Consult your projects with us and you will get a highly qualified feedback on creative aspects with Juraj, on budgeting and planning with Henrieta and on legal aspects and distribution with Danka.
