Attend East Doc Platform and meet world-famous filmmakers

 

One World not only screens films but also supports documentary filmmaking. Therefore, we cooperate with The Institute of Documentary Film that organizes a traditional documentary industry event called East Doc Platform during One World in Prague. From March 6 to 12, almost 400 guests from all over the world will attend, including 70 key international commissioning editors, buyers, distributors, sales agents, festival programmers, film funds and independent producers, who will choose from the most promising documentary projects and films from Central and Eastern Europe.

East Doc Platform program comprises of Project Market, East European Forum and Doc Tank where directors and producers can get support, find new contacts and inspiration. Several creative awards will be awarded.

A major part of the program will be open to the public and will take place in Cervantes Institute in Prague. The program will offer lectures, case studies, masterclasses of international experts, public presentations and screenings.

The Institute of Documentary film is pleased to welcome the renowned filmmaker Leonard Retel Helmrich to the East Doc Platform in Prague. Leonard Retel Helmrich is a double Sundance winner and is well-known for his signature visual style which he calls 'Single Shot Cinema.' Within the East Doc Platform he is a tutor and mentor to 21 aspiring documentary film teams that will present their upcoming films at the final Pitching session. His open masterclass will take place on Tuesday, March 7th at 18:00 and is part of the East Doc Platform Open Programme.

The theme of the 6th East Doc Platform is Present Continues. Documentary is an interpretation of reality, a trace of an event that has already happened. The fixation of the moment in time. A presence, which lasts.

"In the era, which is characterised by an overload of information, IDF supports creative documentary film, which  in today’s fast-paced world , consciously stops, draws attention to detail and makes us think about crucial themes from a new perspective", says Filip Remunda, co-founder and Board member of the Institute od Documentary Film.
