Institute of Documentary Film’s Activities
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.

As You Like It
If you could pick only one photograph of yourself for the next generations to remember you, which one would you choose? The film brings together stories from people facing their gravestone picture while still being alive and focuses on the image of the self, as a threshold of the visible world they leave behind. As this is an eternal memory for the descendants, people seem to be very keen on finding “the right” portrait. How would you recognize your 82 years old grandparents if their gravestone portrait shows them as 16 years old adolescents? The graveyard picture is also part of the collective memory of the society we live in. That’s why Sabina, a 72 years old widow, wants to replace her gravestone picture because she is “too red” and she will be misjudged as an alcoholic. The audience discovers the graveyard as a public photo album and a living social document.
