East Doc Platform | Prague | March 5 – 11, 2012

East European Forum, Doc Launch, East Silver Videolibrary, Project Market


Institute of Documentary Film would like to invite all members of the international professional community to the inaugural edition of the new East Doc Platform - an umbrella industry event dedicated to supporting East European documentary films in all stages of completion. Organized by IDF in association with One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival from March 5 through 11, 2012, the East Doc Platform features our staple events, such as the East European Forum, Doc Launch presentation, Project Market, as well as the new East Silver Videolibrary with a fresh portion of spring documentary titles. In addition to that, the diverse industry programme is being composed, offering master classes, case studies, lectures, seminars, discussions, screenings and more, while providing documentary professionals with important networking opportunities.

The option to get accredited for the Industry programme is now open. Majority of the East Doc Platform programme in Prague will be open for accredited professionals only, so we suggest you register online before it is late. You are safe & sound if you do so by February 9, 2012.

Since 2012, East Silver brings out new documentary films from the Central and Eastern European region twice a year! After the 8th edition took place in October in Jihlava, the video library with fresh titles will be open soon again within the East Doc Platform in March in Prague. This is the reason why submissions for the upcoming 9th Jihlava edition are open all year round. However, if you submit your film by January 10, 2012, your film will be considered for the new East Silver Videolibrary in Prague.

We are happy to see the interest many Eastern European professionals show as we received nearly 130 projects applying for East European Forum, Doc Launch presentation, and Project Market. The board of experts is now preselecting the most suitable ones to participate at the spring session in Prague. IDF will announce the final pick in the early February.

Project Market will once again allow the delegates with eligible documentary projects meet individually with commissioning editors, distributors, sales agents, fund and festival representatives from across Europe and North America. Since we have prolonged our deadline, you can still apply for Project Market by January 15. The market coordinator is already at your disposal, you may direct your questions and meeting requests to
