The fifth generation of Emerging Producers presented in Jihlava

The fifth edition of Emerging Producers, a flagship industry project of the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival and the only one of its kind designed for documentary film producers in Europe, was presented yesterday at the festival's DIOD venue.

As Jihlava's head of industry, Jarmila Outratova, explained, in the official publication of the project, they tried to present not only the producers and their work, but also give a feeling of their personalities, listing their favourite films and other influences, such as music and literature, and even their favourite colours and animals that they find representative of themselves.
