4th EAST SILVER 2007, a unique documentary market featuring 346 documentary films made in the last two years in Central and Eastern Europe. The singular project of EAST SILVER 2007 was part of the 11th Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival, which took place October 23 - 28, 2007 in the Czech Republic. The EAST SILVER MARKET was open from Wednesday, October 24 to Sunday, October 28, 2007 from 9am to 10pm.
EAST SILVER serves as annual meeting places for the ever-expanding international documentary community and this aspect is also an essential part of their continued success. Just as cinemas aren’t disappearing with the emergence of DVD and home theaters, East Silver will always be a place where people can meet each other in a relaxed atmosphere.
Together with the East European Forum, which generated a range of great offers for the production and development of new projects by East European filmmakers and producers, both created the industry section of the IDFF Jihlava.
East Silver haa a joint mission to promote outstanding Eastern and Central European documentaries and to improve the conditions under which they are being produced. For this purpose East Silver has created a whole slate of offers for the documentary industry in order to support networking among professionals and new talents, to help promote new creative documentaries and to support the distribution of the best works.
During 2007 the 4th edition of the East Silver Market did its best to fulfill the goal of digitization: 346 hand-picked new documentaries were available with the click of a mouse – no more waiting for tapes, no more problems with DVDs that don’t run; instead, each film will came with email contacts to the producers and distributors and a detailed review.
