Institute of Documentary Film’s Activities
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.

Lost Holiday

Ztracená dovolená, Czech Republic, 2007, 84 min, 35 mm, Arts and Culture, Creative, History, IDF Video Library
A documentary detective story. Lada, a Czech traveller, finds by chance a dirty suitcase in a Swedish waste bin. It contains only a very carefully packed plastic bag full of film rolls. Lada takes all of the 22 film rolls home to Prague and has them developed. There are 756 fascinating photos from a trip of seven Asian men, probably from China. Lost Holiday tells the story of the search for these unknown tourists, based only on the lost photographs. We would like to give the photos back to them. And so the unknown men from Asia become guides on our exciting journey as we search through the lost photos and also for the nature of contemporary man.
