Local documentary film production in despite of the constant financial difficulties and lack of support is permanently confirming its outstanding position by its original results.
Over the past few years audiences throughout the world have yet again discovered the intensity and significance of documentary film-making, which casts onto film and its viewers reflection of the immediate reality, as well as a surprise factor and authenticity which feature films are believed to have lost recently. The documentary film is not simply an adjunct to feature films, but a wholly independent cinematographic genre in its own right.
Nevertheless, the inner originality of the recent Czech documentary films or prices on the international film festivals do not have the power to change the way the documentary is perceived and evaluated. The Czech documentary film deserves complex support including the informational service about all the chain links of the local production. The panel and the catalogue are willing to do that - to shed the light on the films that will be finished on 2006 or by the end of August 2007.
