East Silver

East Silver is a specialised market in the Central and Eastern European documentary film field. The East Silver market consists of a video-library, catalogue and a specialized on-line database of Central and Eastern European documentary films. The East Silver project is realized because of the co-operation of the International Documentary FilmFestival in Jihlava and Institute of Documentary Film, Prague. East Silver strives to continuously serve as a unique promotional and support tool for Eastern and Central documentary productions by assembling in one place completed documentaries from East European countries, including countries with low AV production capacity, and making them accessible by bringing them to international attention by various means. We shall continue to promote these somewhat overlooked productions in the international marketplace, and make them available to international professionals such as TV buyers, festival programmers, sales agents and distributors, by focusing on the opportunity of being included in program sections of international festivals, presented at international film markets and broadcast on European and international TV stations, consequently making them available to much wider audiences.
