The Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival organizes the main part of its program into four traditional competitive sections. Czech Joy focuses on the domestic documentary scene, while Opus Bonum follows trends in contemporary world documentary. Between the Seas focuses on Central and Eastern European documentaries and Fascinations is an international competition for experimental forms of documentary films. A different perspective, both in terms of cinematographic approach and thinking about the world is reflected in retrospectives in the section Translucent Beings.
The festival also explores what documentary means. A new section called Doc-Fi shows how permeable the boundaries between documentary and fiction film are and the new Reality TV section introduces the actual shapes of the crossbred genres like docudrama, docusoap, reality show or mockumentary to the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival audience. The festival brings along a wide accompanying programme such as author readings, theatre cabarets, concerts of alternative music and Darkroom, focusing on still images on the big screen.
JIDFF invites prominent Czech and foreign figures from the fields of documentary, fiction, and experimental film, film theory, and film criticism to sit in the festival juries.
East Silver, a digitized market of documentary films, running contemporaneously with the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival, supports producers and distributors from Central and Eastern Europe. Industry professionals can come to watch over 370 completed films and trailers of upcoming titles from Eastern and Central Europe, as well as Baltic countries, Russia and Ukraine.
East Silver also offers a printed catalogue distributed to over five hundred film professionals, and an on-line database, in which directors and producers can present their films. The video library creates space for them to meet important distributors, television and festival programmers and buyers. They can, through East Silver, systematically get to know hard-to-find documentary production from Central and Eastern Europe and acquire selected films for further distribution. The East Silver video library serves as a unique meeting point for the dialogue between film professionals from East and West.
