POLISH PROJECTS AT EAST DOC PLATFORM

At the end of last year, we got to know the list of documentary projects selected to participate in East Doc Platform and East Doc Market. Polish projects are also among the titles eligible for both programs.

East Doc Platform is an industry event devoted to documentary film organised by the Institute of Documentary Film in Prague, accompanying the One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival.

The upcoming edition will be held from 26 March to 1 April 2022. During the event a number of prizes will go to the best projects still in development from among all those participating in the East Doc Platform.

East Doc Forum is an event created for producers who are working on projects that are in the development or production and are looking for funding. The East European Forum will include 5-day workshops, as well as pitch sessions, one-to-one meetings, and discussions.
