Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival

Republica Cehă

The idea to create an event known under its present title – Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival – was conceived in the minds of a group of Jihlava high school students in 1997. And because words soon became reality, each autumn, the Ji.hlava IDFF brought together dozens and later hundreds and thousands of viewers, directors, artists, producers, film critics and journalists – friends and fans of documentary cinema – to spend several days “thinking through film”. Today, 20 years later, we can proudly claim that this celebration of creative documentary cinema has long been recognised as the largest event of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe.
