Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival
Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival is the largest festival of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe, taking place annually at the end of October in the city of Jihlava, Czech Republic. The festival’s original programming focuses on various forms of creative documentaries, overlapping with fiction and experimental films, as well as miscellaneous forms of reality television formats. Jihlava IDFF is accompanied by a rich Industry Programme for film professionals, including Inspiration Forum, Emerging Producers, Festival Identity workshops, East Silver Market, Masterclasses and other industry events. The range of festival guests is therefore very diverse. Apart from filmmakers and film professionals it includes a broad spectrum of personalities ranging from artistic to scientific fields.

Floating Cinema
Floating Cinema presents series of events across London waterways devised by artist duo Somewhere (Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie). This unique canal boat, designed by Duggan Morris Architects, will journey from east to west London, hosting on-board events such as performances, talks, workshops and screenings, alongside open air ‘Weekenders’ in partnership with leading film festivals and cultural partners from around the world.
