East European Forum begins at Jihlava

    The eighth edition of the East European Forum for documentary pitching is underway at the 12th Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival (October 24-29).

    Some 50 participants are expected to attend, including filmmakers, including commissioning editors, distributors, buyers, and film fund representatives from across Europe. Producers and directors of 24 selected projects will attend a 3-day pitching workshop, followed by a 2-day pitching session and a follow up session.

    The event, organized by the Czech Institute of Documentary Film, includes two sidebar sessions: a dinner meeting between Czech filmmakers and sales agents, commissioning editors, and festival directors; and a Sales and Distribution Session with information from key agents and distributors on strategy.

    A special prize will be given to one of the Pitching Forum participants for an individual consultation session at the Sunny Side of the Doc festival.
