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.
Statuary of Granddad Vinda is a story of sculptor Vincenc Havel who lived in the Opava region of north Moravia in the 1950s. His film memories are a set of images that nicely depict this interesting personality, which is firmly anchored in the milieu of 1950s. Vincenc was a nonconformist and eccentric who could not get along with anybody and who was always fighting with everyone. He was a sculptor. At the beginning of tje 1950s, he made a sculpture of Klement Gottwald. Besides recognition by the state, the commission also raised envy. Therefore he retired into his house where he also built his studio. His house served him as a fort against the outside world. He was equally uncompromising in the upbringing of his daughter. The discrepancies that had originated in this relationship were a heavy burden for him later on. His whole life was a fight for recognition he would never receive.
