DOCU TALENTS FROM THE EAST
Since 2005, Docu Talents from the East has been a launch pad for a number of documentaries, including Rabbit a la Berlin, Blind Loves, Matchmaking Mayor, The Mosquito Problem and Other Stories, Kites, Cooking History, Rene or Czech Peace.
Each year, The Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival organizes the presentation of Docu Talents, in cooperation with Karlovy Vary IFF. In 2005-2009 it was co-organized with the Institute of Documentary Film.
Docu Talents aims to draw attention of important film professionals, visiting one of the two A category festivals in the region, to the selection of the best documentary films. We believe that promotion of films from the very initial stages of production or post-production is one of the most efficient tools for advancement.
Each year, festival advisors, distributors, buyers and local as well as international journalists are invited to attend the event. Following the presentation, filmmakers have a chance to meet audiences, festival programmers, distributors and journalists at an informal cocktail party, as well as attend closed consultations with selected film professionals.
