25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Ex Oriente Film
Creative feature length (52´up) documentary projects in development and production tackling contemporary topics, challenging genre and media boundaries and audience participation. We welcome filmmakers who set out to conduct intense and engaged experiences and to change the way we think about topical issues, audiences, ways of storytelling and the world itself.
The workshop is open for 12 documentary projects represented by director-producer teams who will attend all the workshop sessions. The workshop is designed primarily for directors and producers from Central and Eastern Europe (incl. EU acceding and candidate countries, Post-Soviet states and Russia) and/ or for creative documentary projects dealing with stories from Central and Eastern Europe.
Usual expected regular participation fee is €2,100 per selected project (includes accommodation, coffee breaks and lunches during all the three workshop sessions for 2 pers.) The fee will be implemented in accordance with the workshop format, depending on the format of each session. We will keep you informed about the updates.
Selected participants may apply for a scholarship to cover part of the participation fee associated with the workshop. Applicants must prove that there is no access to scholarships in their own country.
Directors and producers can only participate with their own creative documentary projects. It is required that all workshop sessions be attended by both the director and the producer. Participants must be proficient in English.
