Czech Docs Project
Film Projects Panel
For the fifth time the Film Projects Panel took place at the 17 the FINALE Plzen festival. It is the only event of its kind in the Czech Republic and presents films in various stages of production, from finished scripts and financially supported projects to postproduction. Documentary projects are divided into following categories: Popular science, natural science and educational, Historical, Music and art.
In the prior years only feature films were presented to the specialized public and to local and foreign journalists, but this year for the first time it was enlarged to include documentaries.
The projects were presented by individual producers, directors, and other filmmakers. The entire event was interpreted into English, and afterward the audience, including film professionals and journalists, had an opportunity to meet the film representatives and obtain detailed information about the various projects.
According to the stage of production, the films were presented orally or by a short clip.
A bilingual brochure with information on the projects is available at via internet (www.filmcenter.cz).
The panel was organized by the Czech Film Center (CFC) and IDF Institute of Documentary Film (www.DOKweb.net) in cooperation with FINALE Plzen.
