Founded in 2001, the INSTITUTE OF DOCUMENTARY FILM (IDF) is a non-profit training and networking centre based in Prague, Czech Republic, focused on the support of East European documentary films and their wider promotion. Our activities support filmmakers through all stages of completion – development, funding, production, post-production, and distribution. We aim at individual filmmakers (tailored consultations), groups of carefully selected professionals with projects or films (Ex Oriente Film, East European Forum, East Silver, Doc Launch, etc.), broader professional community (East Doc Platform), as well as the general public (portal www.DOKweb.net). We closely work with key int. festivals, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, markets, or training initiatives and serve as the GATEWAY TO EAST EUROPEAN DOCUMENTARY FILM.
The 21st of November 2012 we celebrated 150-year anniversary of the death of Božena Němcová. She, as the only woman, ended among the first ten people in the Czech TV competition, which was looking for the gretaest Czech person. Is the placement of the emancipated Czech writer fair? What does contemporary Czech reader know about Němcová?
The authors of half-documentary film Ljuba Václavová and Martina Komárková contemplates about the reasons why Božena Němcová is considered the most important Czech woman. They investigate some parts of her work and life from unusual points of view.
