Among the many websites of documentary organisations (EDN, Documentary Campus, Eurodoc etc.) the one provided by the Prague based Institute of Documentary Film (IDF) stands out, when it comes to deal withfilmmaking.
Apart from the information that the active organisation gives on its activities like the East European Forum, Ex Oriente, East Silver market as well as a guide to funding possibilities, a survey over professionals, the DOKWeb publishes articles about and interviews with important filmmakers from the region it deals with: Eastern Europe.
To mention a few: Katerina Surmanová writes about Lithuanian master director Audrius Stonys, who has been making his lyrical documentaries for over 20 years (Photo: Ramin by Audrius Stonys). The same writer takes the reader into the world of Polish director and cameraman, Cracow based Marcin Koszalka. Hana Rezkova, for years a key person at IDF, talks with Russian Vitaly Mansky about his new Cuba film and with Lithuanian director Lina Luzyte about her Belarussian Toys, which will be released in 2012, see above.
