East European Forum
The East European Forum is the region's largest meeting of East European documentary filmmakers with Europe's and North America´s leading commissioning editors, distributors, buyers and film fund representatives. Directors and independent producers offer their projects for co-production, pre-sale or other forms of financial support.
Since its foundation in 2001, the Forum has become a prestigious meeting place that has hosted over 600 East European filmmakers and producers, almost 100 commissioning editors and tens of international distributors, buyers and festival programmers. Over 80 documentary films have been completed with the direct support of the East European Forum, with a number of them awarded at prestigious international festivals.
Projects that attended the East European Forum and are not yet completed become part of the the year-long Doc Launch programme.
