Celebrate with us 15 years of Central and East European cinema under the patronage of Ex Oriente Film, an international training program for documentary professionals supporting the creative development and funding of documentary films from the region.
In collaboration with its organizer, Institute of documentary film, Film, we have prepared a selection of the best works that have gone through this prestigious workshop throughout its history. Nine critically acclaimed films, among which you won’t miss festival winners or even an Oscar nominee, are going to guide you across the film region that has been bubbling over with excitingly increasing energy incomparable with the rest of Europe.
Over the past 15 years, over 160 films have gone through the Ex Oriente Film training program. The aim of Ex Oriente Film is to increase the potential for international co-production and success at the international level through intensive tutoring by leading documentary film experts, while inspiring and challenging documentary filmmakers to produce innovative and insightful work.
The Institute of Documentary Film has been supporting creative documentary films from Central and Eastern Europe since 2001. IDF provides both emerging and experienced filmmakers with training, financing, promotion, networking and pitching opportunities, helps them get international attention and co-productions, and rewards the exceptional projects with awards and further opportunities.
The celebration ends on May 21st!
