Map of South-Eastern Europe


The International Documentary Film Festival Jihlava
Saturday, October 27, 6 pm
New support for Balkan documentaries is an initiative formed at last year's Wiesbaden-based goEAST FILM FESTIVAL to explore and analyze the situation of documentary film in Southeast Europe. A website, which will provide an overview of recent history and impact of documentary film in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldavia, Monenegro, Serbia and UNMI Kosovo, will be launched in late October 2007. is aiming to stengthen the idea of networking and coproductions in the region. The goEAST symposium planned for the 8th festival (9th to 15th of April 2008) will examine the role documentary plays in the recent history and presence of Balkans.
The project is supported by the European Cultural Foundation and the Goethe Institute.
Contacts:; (from the end of October)
Presented by Bernd Buder, free-lance film journalist and curator, collaborator of the GOEAST FILM FESTIVAL.
