East Doc Platform Reveals Industry Sessions Featured in Upcoming Public Programme


The Institute of Documentary Film in Prague has unveiled this year's public programme for the upcoming sixth edition of East Doc Platform. The public sessions of the largest documentary industry event for Central and Eastern Europe will be presented in English language and are open to visitors free of charge.

The featured sessions of the next East Doc Platform include, among others, the lecture "Notes on Pitching Trailers" hosted by EDN Head of Studies Mikael Opstrup and producer Iikka Vehkalahti. The session will offer personal views and insights regarding the role of pitching trailers in the development process of a project. A focus will be placed on the right approach for presenting the essence of a film and the ability of filmmakers to involve the audience and decision makers on an emotional level.

An overview of the current landscape of co-productions will be presented by Helle Faber from Made In Copenhagen, Denmark. Through examples from her projects and career, she will reflect on various challenges and pitfalls of creative co-producing across Europe. With a focus on the latest trends in 360° video and virtual reality, Adam Široký and Jindřich Trapl from XLAB will be offering a talk on the developent of VR content and equipment (software/hardware) and further illustrate the principal workflow of a 360° production.

Another highlight of the programme will be the public presentations of the East European Forum, where 20 feature-length documentaries in development/production from Central and Eastern Europe will be pitched to international industry professionals and potential funders.
