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.

Ex Oriente Film is an international workshop dedicated to the development and funding of creative documentary films in Central and Eastern Europe. At three residential workshops, participating directors work to develop the subject, narrative and the visual style of their projects, while producers learn more about the best ways to engage potential funders, and about the rules of the international market. Lectures and seminars on legal and financial issues in documentary filmmaking are an important feature throughout the programme. Ex Oriente Film culminates in the final pitching sessions of East European creative projects at the East European Forum. The three residential workshops under Ex Oriente Film and the East European Forum pitching are supplemented by the follow-up programme that tracks the projects till their completion, provides our former participants with consultation and scholarships to key international festivals and markets, helps to multiply their professional contacts, as well as to finalize the narrative and editing structure of their rough cuts. Ex Oriente Film was established in 2003 as the very first training initiative for East European creative documentary film.
