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.

Cross-media stories by Liz Rosenthal

Before the Internet and digitisation, the way that stories were told, delivered and shared were restricted by running times, distribution formats and platforms. The impact of new technologies coupled with an audience that has way more control over their media than ever before is impacting on the art and craft and business of documentary storytelling. Just as sound changed the landscape of filmmaking, technology is changing audience behaviour, participation and expectations, presenting documentarians with exciting new opportunities to engage audiences and communities in a variety of new ways. Liz Rosenthal, Founder and CEO of Power to the Pixel will present a diverse range of international case studies to illustrate.
