The fourth edition of East Doc Platform will, apart from the traditional meetings of documentary professionals, workshops, lectures, pitchings, networking events and other activities, offer 7500 EUR prize for the best participating project in development. Deadline is December 1, 2014.

Institute of Documentary Film, who organises East Doc Platform, calls for documentary projects in development, production or post-production for the 4th edition of East Doc Platform. It will take place on March 2– 8, 2015 in Prague, Czech Republic.

East Doc Platform 2015 will welcome more than 400 guests, including 70 international festival programmers, commissioning editors, buyers, distributors, sales agents, film funds and organization representatives who will be able to choose from films and projects in Central and Eastern Europe.

Out of all East and Central European documentary projects in development participating in East Doc Platform activities, one will be awarded this prize.
