As has already been announced (see the news), the tenth edition of East Doc Platform (EDP), the largest co-production, funding and distribution platform tailor-made for Central and East European documentaries, is running entirely online this year in an extended format from 6-17 March. It is organised by the Institute of Documentary Film.
The East Doc Forum is the flagship pitching opportunity for the funding and co-production of projects in the development or early-production stage. The selected projects were announced in December, and as every year, the 12 Ex Oriente films will be pitched as well during the event. Additionally, at the East Doc Market, six Czech projects round off the selection, with five of them also forming part of the Czech Docs... Coming Soon section.
Selected projects are also eligible for the East Doc Platform Award, valued at €7,500, intended for the best projects in development and production. The winners will be picked by the jury, comprising Asta Dalman (SVT), Luisa Schwamborn (NEW DOCS) and Jane Mote (Whicker's World Foundation).
Apart from the sections dedicated to feature-length projects, the EDP is hosting the second session of East Doc Series, which focuses on enhancing international and competitive potential, offering a wide array of networking options, including pitching sessions and one-on-one meetings for the selected projects. The first edition of the programme was held during the 2020 Baltic Sea Docs (see the news). Also, the East Doc Interactive workshop has invited five interactive and immersive XR projects in development.
As for the programme of EDP, which includes a series of lectures, master classes and case studies, some of the highlights are the master class by Alexander Nanau on his Oscar-shortlisted documentary Collective [+leggi anche:
