The Czech state fund aimed at encouraging filmmaking in the country has decided to launch criminal proceedings against one of the most expensive projects it has supported. The fund, on the back of expert analysis, has suspicions that fraud could have played a role in funding for the more than 200 million crown Czech fantasy film ‘Last from Aporver.’ The state fund put forward 47 million crowns to support the film. It was supposed to have been completed in 2011 but that date has been put back four times with no clear indication when it might be screened in cinemas.
