Since 2001, the Institute of Documentary Film (IDF) has been supporting Central and East European creative documentary films in all stages of production. It helps both established and up-and-coming filmmakers in the early stage of project development; producers receive support in funding, distribution and marketing, as well as assistance in navigating the international market. Each year, films in IDF programmes earn a number of international awards. Yet how are Czech filmmakers recognised in the local context?

The 15th edition of the Ex Oriente Film workshop, organised by the Institute of Documentary Film, is opening its final session.

East Doc Platform will give out 35,000 EUR in prizes this year.

East Doc Platform has announced its guest line-up for the 3-9 March event.

Paula Oneț is developing 4GenWomen, a global project gathering stories about families with four generations of women under one roof in different countries and cultures.
