Celebrated Czech director and teacher Otakar Vavra has died at the age of 100.
The filmmaker passed away in Prague on Thursday (15Sep11).
Vavra began making films in the 1930s and rose to fame after World War Two.
He took home the top prize at Spain's San Sebastian Film Festival in 1965 for Golden Queen, while 1967's Romance for Bugle was another of his best-known works.
Vavra was also famous for establishing Prague's Famu film school, where his students included filmmaker Milos Forman, who went on to win two Oscars for Best Director - his first in 1976 for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and the second in 1985 for Amadeus.
Another of Vavra's proteges was Jiri Menzel, whose movie Closely Observed Trains won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1968.
