Doc Next @ IDFA 2012
A new generation of DIY documentary makers zooms in on Europe
Doc Next Network brings fresh short documentaries by young European DIY media-makers to the big screen during the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) from 14 - 25 November 2012.
Their portrayals of everyday heroes reveal small, sympathetic, local actions that have a big impact – revealing a love for storytelling, dancing, coffee, birds, personal belongings, memories and gardens… What are the images of Europe that they portray? Doc Next @ IDFA mixes patient-eye documentaries with critical and political remix videos.
Doc Next shorts will be screened before featured IDFA documentaries, and will be shown every day during the festival in the Doc Next Mini Cinema on the Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam. Admission to the Mini Cinema is free. For the full programme, go to www.docnextnetwork.org.
Not in Amsterdam in November? You can also follow Doc Next @ IDFA online with a daily Doc Next film.
Doc Next @ IDFA is an initiative of ECF and the International Documentary Film Festival (IDFA), based on a mutual desire to make sure the voices of young DIY media talent are included in public opinion.
