The East European Forum, held annually as part of the East Doc Platform (EDP), a major meeting point for emerging and experienced filmmakers, film festival representatives and key international personalities in the world of documentary filmmaking, which unspooled in Prague between 6 and 12 March, presented 18 projects this year.
Eleven of these took part in Ex Oriente Film, a year-long training initiative for creative documentaries organised by the Institute of Documentary Film. A public pitching presentation of the participants’ projects was held on Saturday 11 March at the Komedie Theatre in Prague, in front of international commissioning editors, film-fund representatives, buyers, distributors, sales agents, independent producers and other financiers.
During a five-day workshop preceding the presentations, the documentary projects in development and production were prepared for public presentation under the guidance of 12 tutors and experts, such as Joe Bini and Helle Faber. In addition, various lectures, master classes and panels were devoted to different aspects of documentary filmmaking in an international setting.
Among the projects presented were the new films by Eva Pervolovici (Marussia [+lee también:
