ASSOCIATION UKUS (Rijeka, Croatia) and INSTITUTE OF DOCUMENTARY FILM (IDF, Prague, Czech Republic) are once again joint to organize a workshop session of original creative documentary film in Rijeka, for a total of 16 PROJECTS which were selected in Prague and Rijeka, a few months ago. Association UKUS – a platform for the development and support of hybrid AV projects REFINERI – enabled four hybrid REFINERI projects to participate in July’s session of EX ORIENTE FILM + REFINERI (projects come form Croatia, and BiH). IDF, a renowned international educational program for the development of creative documentaries in Central and Eastern Europe Ex Oriente Film, have chosen 12 projects for the workshop (Croatia, Bulgaria, Germany Slowakia, Romania, Hungary, Poland, France, BiH, Slovenia, Switzerland, Czech Republik, Canada).

In addition to professional guidance for directors and producers of projects by 14 TUTORS – Europe’s leading experts in their fields – Ex Oriente Film + REFINERI also brings a series of extraordinary lectures, screenings and master classes which will be opened to professionals but also to the rest of the audience (look the PROGRAMME FOR THE PUBLIC).
