Czech Docs Project
Czech Documentary at Festivals
Within its projects, the Institute of Documentary Films (IDF) continually cooperates with European institutions, television stations, producers and primarily festival selectors. Thus it acquires knowledge not only of the period tendencies and festival requirements but also of the dates and deadlines of film festivals of the whole world.
Within the Czech project, IDF creates a survey of Czech documentary films, mapping the possibilities of their distribution to international film festivals. It forms an individual offer of relevant documentaries for selectors of major world festivals, such as: Silver Docs, Discop Budapest, Sunny Side of the Doc La Rochelle, FID Marseille, Sarajevo, Zagreb Dox, Sofia International FF, Sheffield IDFF, Leipzig IFF, IDFA Amsterdam, IFF Cannes, Tribeca Film Festival New York, IFF Pusan, IFF Toronto.
At the same time, IDF selects Czech films for the East Silver Caravan, a selection of East European documentaries traveling to dozens of world film festivals. More about the Caravan in the East Silver section.
