Greta Stocklassa is currently making Kiruna 2.0, a film about the relocation of a Swedish mining town. Being half-Swedish, Stocklassa is opening another opportunity for Czech documentary film to get closer to Europe, something more and more often attempted by young Czech filmmakers.
The 8th edition of East Doc Platform (EDP) will focus on "Eastern Logic". The biggest industry event for Central and Eastern European documentaries starts on 9 March 2019. The complete open programme of the East Doc Platform 2019 is available here.
