East Silver Market | October 25 – 30, 2011 | Festival Center
As every year, a huge portion of the Industry programme in Jihlava will rest on East Silver Market, the first documentary market of its kind, exclusively promoting the documentary film from Central and Eastern Europe. The main goal of the market is to survey the documentary landscape of the region, to create a lucid catalogue and, since the last year, also a digitalized video-library which is available to a wide spectrum of film professions. An important feature of the film market is the set of Industry screenings, co-production breakfasts, lectures and presentations of distribution companies and key markets. In addition to that, East Silver devotes its year-long work to selection of approximately 30 promising titles within East Silver Caravan which is being dispatched to nearly 80 film festivals. Up to this day we have recorded 115 festival appearances and 14 awards for the year 2011.
The database of all the documentaries that ever appeared at East Silver Market is available HERE and this year's selection will be added at East Silver Market 2011. The best 33 films also feature on the nominee list for the annual Silver Eye Awards, determined by the international jury in three categories.
Doc Launch Presentation | October 27 – 28, 2011 | Assembly Hall at Secondary Graphic Art School
In Jihlava, the Doc Launch presentation annually introduces 8-9 handpicked feature-length documentaries from Central and Eastern Europe. Festival programmers, distributors, sales agents, members of the press and audiences get the first glimpse of films in post-production that are slated for theatrical release over the next year. Doc Launch focuses on extraordinary documentary projects ready for theatre distribution, many of them gained international acclaim and their list is available here. This year there are more than 60 applicants registered for the event, you can take a look at the final choice for the Doc Launch Presentation.
Even Doc Launch participants will have a chance to get trained by tutors on the eve of their presentation session which takes place on the 28th of October.
Project Market | October 27 – 29, 2011 | Secondary Graphic Art School
