We also work with key international festivals, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, markets, film institutions, film schools, MEDIA Desks, training programmes, national film centres and various film portals, and serve as the GATEWAY TO EAST EUROPEAN DOCUMENTARY FILM – an indispensable source of documentary projects and films from Central and Eastern Europe.

Czech Docs Project

For the third time this year, Institute of Documentary film, Jihlava IDFF and Czech Film Center publish the catalogue of the forthcoming Czech documentary films and organize public panel presentation, that will enable the authors to introduce their work. The Catalogue will be published on 11th September this year.

Representative selection of about 10 films submitted to the catalogue will be presented at a press conference. Director and producer of each project will present the main theme of the film and will show a trailer. The aim of the press conference is to draw the attention of Czech journalists and experts to the films in the initial stages of their production and to stimulate their interest in local documentary filmmaking.
