CALL FOR ARTICLES: PUT YOUR STAMP ON DOKWEB.NET

The Institute of Documentary Film is announcing a call for articles to be posted on DOKweb.net. In order to open up our portal to a broad variety of topics and views, we invite filmmakers, producers, industry insiders, students and other documentary professionals to send in their documentary-related texts. We're looking forward to reading your submissions!

Two months into the adventure that is the DOKweb.net portal, the Institute of Documentary Film would like to announce a call for articles. We encourage documentary practitioners, industry insiders, students in a film or a film-related programme and other documentary professionals to send us submissions that deal with the theory or practice of documentary filmmaking in any part of the world.

Preference will be given to texts accessible to a broad audience. Possible topics may include, but are not limited to, an account of your experience with international co-production, funds or broadcasters; documentary funding in Western Europe or North America; difficulties encountered in the development of your project; an outline of legal or other issues hampering the audiovisual industry in your country; advice and suggestions concerning various aspects of documentary filmmaking; views from the other side (overseas contributors, commissioning editors, funders). Film reviews are not part of the current call.

Submissions of 2 - 6 standard pages may be sent in English, Czech or Slovak. Texts selected by IDF's editorial staff will be posted in English and Czech on our portal, www.DOKweb.net, the largest online resource for East European documentary film. Following an agreement with the author, texts may be edited or trimmed. Authors of published submissions will receive CZK 250 per standard page.

There is no fixed deadline; submissions are considered on an ongoing basis. Please send your text in .doc format to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The authors of accepted and rejected texts will be notified by email within two weeks.

We're looking forward to reading your views and insights!
