Our team of selectors is finishing the selection of films for the 2011 edition of the market. The most submissions came from Poland (177), then Czech Republic (101) and on the third place is Austria (83).
All submitted films are also considered for the 3rd Silver Eye Awards. Every year a collection of 33 documentary films in three categories are nominated for the annual Silver Eye Awards – award designed in order to honour the best documentary films from the region. The nominees, as well as the jury members, will be announced at the end of September.
The regular part of the submissions are films from certain regions recommended by our partners, such as Krakow Film Foundation with selection of new Polish docs, DOK Market (DOK Leipzig) offering the most interesting German docs, or collection of films from Balkan submitted by festivals Beldocs and Sarajevo IFF.
More details about selected films will be published on our website during October. The East Silver Market will be open to industry professionals from October 25th to 30th in Jihlava, every day from 10 AM to 10 PM.
