Founded in 2001, the INSTITUTE OF DOCUMENTARY FILM (IDF) is a non-profit training and networking centre based in Prague, Czech Republic, focused on the support of East European documentary films and their wider promotion. Our activities support filmmakers through all stages of completion – development, funding, production, post-production, and distribution. We aim at individual filmmakers (tailored consultations), groups of carefully selected professionals with projects or films (Ex Oriente Film, East European Forum, East Silver, Doc Launch, etc.), broader professional community (East Doc Platform), as well as the general public (portal www.DOKweb.net). We closely work with key int. festivals, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, markets, or training initiatives and serve as the GATEWAY TO EAST EUROPEAN DOCUMENTARY FILM.
There is an old tradition in Catalonia. It is the tradition of Castells to build towers made out of people. Whole families dedicate their lives to training in the art of climbing on top of each other to create giant human towers of up to 10 metres high and compete in market places throughout the region. The teamwork must be perfect - the slightest mistake could be fatal. This 200 year-old tradition is not only a national sport but also a symbol of pride and strong ties to a community and an emblem of cultural independence.
