The presentation offers a selection of feature documentary films in development aimed for theatrical release. The goal of the meeting is to draw the attention of important film professionals attending the only A category festival in the region also on some of the best films in the documentary genre. We believe that the promotion of films from the very initial stages of development is one of the most efficient tools within the overall support. Each year, festival programmers, distributors, buyers and local as well as international journalists are invited to attend the event. Detailed information on each project is provided in a special brochure distributed at the festival. Following the presentation, filmmakers are able to meet audiences, festival programmers, distributors and journalist at an informal cocktail party.
Docu Talents from the East were co-organized by IDF and IDFF Jihlava at the Karlovy Vary IFF from 2005 to 2009.
