KineDok je nova vrsta međunarodne zajednice, jedinstveni filmski klub i alternativna distribucijska platforma koja spaja ljubitelje
i autore kreativnih dokumentarnih filmova. Njegovo pilot-izdanje prikazat će 12 poticajnih dokumentarnih filmova iz istočne
i središnje Europe na 20 netradicionalnih lokacija u svakoj od zemalja sudionica; Hrvatskoj, Češkoj, Slovačkoj, Mađarskoj i Rumunjskoj.
U obliku zajedničkog doživljaja koji prelazi ustaljene granice kino-dvorana, KineDok stiže u vaš lokalni klub, kafić, galeriju, tavan itd.
i poziva vas ne samo da dođete i pogledate film na velikom ekranu, nego i da upoznate autore ili protagoniste filma u neformalnom okruženju
i s njima popričate o raznim temama uz piće. Bez vas, bez predane publike, nema smisla snimati dokumentarce, a bez autora ne bi bilo
glasa koji predstavlja vas, ljude koji proživljavaju zanimljive ili teške trenutke – podržimo, dakle, ovu simbiozu, učinimo umjetnost
dostupnom, proširimo glas i temeljnu poruku KineDoka: ove ljude, ova pitanja, ovaj žanr, ova mjesta i ove zemlje ne smije se zanemarivati!
Mrežni katalog će ponuditi 12 filmova iz Centralne i Istočne Europe, koji će biti prikazani na više od 20 novih lokacija u svakoj od zemalja.
KineDok aims to expand and take care of a community of viewers and fans of documentary film and get creative documentary film to the
attention of a wider public through screenings and discussions at non-traditional places. Five countries from the CEE region will
cooperate on the pilot edition of KineDok: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Croatia. The online catalogue of the project
will offer 12 East and Central European documentaries that will be screened at more than 20 venues in each country.
"After the 14 years of our intensive support for filmmakers through our activities focused on production and distribution of documentary films,
we want to make step towards the audience as well. We want to create new ways for the documentary genre to reach the
average viewer, but also enable a closer communication between those who create the films, and those who watch them.
Creative documentary brings important and challenging topics, without the public’s interest, however, its support would not
make sense. Therefore KineDok meets the specific needs and interests of the documentary audience inviting them to popular
cultural sites in their area and at the same time attracts them with new alternative spaces - clubs, cafes, galleries,
attics, etc., " says the executive director of Institute of Documentary Film, Bojan Schuch.
IDF as the main coordinator of the project, in cooperation with foreign partners, One World Romania Association (Bucharest, Romania), Restart (Zagreb, Croatia),
Mozinet (Budapest, Hungary) and Filmtopia (Bratislava, Slovakia), will create an extensive and continuous distribution network for the
documentaries on the territory of all the participating countries, and will thus help to significantly extend the audience base and
increase the general interest in creative documentary.
KineDok events will take place at already established multifunctional spaces which routinely host concerts, theatrical and dance performances,
as well as at more intimate and alternative venues, such as clubs, cafes, train stops, chapels, social centers, etc.
Local distributors and communities of young people interested in creative documentary will be the driving force of the project.
The projections will be followed by discussions with the directors or other experts in the documentary field.
"I visualise KineDok as a vibrant and growing organism, whose individual parts are autonomous and specific, coordinated by local
distributors who use the knowledge of their environment and audience as well as the support of local partners and festivals,
but at the same time all parts merge into one internationally recognized unit under the auspices of Institute of Documentary Film,
who provides it with the main facilities, service and promotion, " explains Jana Ripplová, the project manager of KineDok.
"KineDok will use IDF’s experience and extensive database as a guarantee for the successfull realization of the project.
By creating a new distributional platform KineDok, a unique tool will arise in the field of documentary filmmaking that will
become an integral part of the distribution of Czech and other documentary films in Central and Eastern Europe," adds Bojan Schuch.
